2013 dates announced for iD Dunedin Fashion Week
iD Dunedin Fashion Week, will take place from 10 March-17 March 2013 in Dunedin, New Zealand. Celebrating its 14th year, this exciting week of fashion events – which includes the iD Dunedin Fashion Show and iD International Emerging Designer Awards – has become a must-see on the international fashion calendar.
Now in its ninth year, the iD International Emerging Designer Awards provides an international platform for rising national and global talent, attracting entries from some of the world’s most prominent fashion schools.
iD Dunedin Fashion Week committee chair Susie Staley says this year’s dates have been chosen to avoid clashing with L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
“It gives us the opportunity to continue to build on our success of securing a prominent international designer, guests and emerging talent and ensure iD fits into their fashion calendar of events.
This year, we will overlap dates with Dunedin’s Fringe Festival, but this will give locals and visitors alike an opportunity to enjoy a vibrant and varied number of events during the weekend of March 16-17.”
Staley confirmed tickets would be available earlier to allow attendees to book in advance and secure flights and accommodation.

Style icon and twice crowned British Fashion Journalist of the Year, Hilary Alexander, attended the iD International Emerging Designer Awards in the prestigious role of guest judge. Other highlights included the Celebrate Christchurch collection – featuring top labels Caroline Moore, Barbara Lee and MisteR – with New Zealand’s Next Top Model judge Colin Mathura-Jeffree making a surprise return to the catwalk – and wowing crowds – modelling MisteR’s exciting new winter range.
