iD Emerging Designer Awards, Dunedin Town Hall, 3 April

What an exciting evening – our first time at this event and our first time as members of iD media! The newly revamped Dunedin Town Hall was packed with fashionistas, models, designers and their enthusiastic supporters which added to the atmosphere. It was great to meet and talk with other media (including a lovely journalist from Singapore – sorry I didn’t catch your name). Francis Hooper of World, one of the judging panel, in his praise of the designers said that the “collections have shone”.
