iD Dunedin Fashion Gala Show 2021


The main event during iD Dunedin Fashion Weekend was the ‘‘Two Shows One Event — Gala Fashion Show’’, a glamorous showcase of fashion at Otago Museum.

The crew from Allied Productions were there to capture the action and will package up the highlights so that all can experience the show.

The first half of the gala show featured collections from the 11 New Zealand iD International Emerging Designer Awards finalists.

The second half showcased the release of new seasons collections by the Dunedin iD ‘‘Godmothers’’ — Nom*d, Carlson, Mild-Red, Company of Strangers and Charmaine Reveley.

The show also had the premiere of the iD International Designer Awards Finalists 2021 movie, featuring 42 designers.
