The iconic iD Dunedin event returns home to the Dunedin Railway Station
A major celebration of fashion is on the cards for 2023, with the eagerly anticipated iD Dunedin Fashion Show and Awards being held on 1 April. Tickets are on sale now and are expected to sell out fast.
The iconic iD Dunedin event returns home to the Dunedin Railway Station, where the 1 April date will see the iD Awards and iD Show combined into one major event.
Promising a mesmerising view of emerging fashion on a global scale, along with local fashion design, the iD Show will feature fashion royalty, including NOM*d, Company of Strangers, Mild Red, Charmaine Reveley, Carlson, Kahuwai, Moochi, and Liz Mitchell showcasing full Winter 23 collections.
Three Central Otago designers will also present capsule collections: ReCreate, New Lands, and Margaret Wray. Additionally, Willmott-Dalton, su’mar, Jojo Ross, Vader, and Kate&Frances will present considered edits of their upcoming collections.
Event Manager Victoria Muir says, “We want the show to celebrate diversity in all its forms, including the designer collections and models on the catwalk. We have already held a successful open model casting to ensure the model cast is diverse.
“Another strong theme for iD 2023 is sustainability, and we are working towards being a zero-waste event. The submission process this year included a request for detail about both these themes. It’s so fantastic to see how designers interpret these words and are implementing the concepts in their day-to-day practice.”
Diehard iD aficionados are invited to secure prime seats without the anxiety of on-sale day queues by joining the limited membership Couture Club. More information about Couture Club is available online.
“We know our fashion lovers have missed being able to attend the show in person, especially at our iconic venue, so we’re expecting a really quick turnaround with the tickets.
“It’s a huge couple of weeks for fashion in the city, with the events we’re planning and then the International Foundation of Fashion Technology Institute’s conference following straight after. We’re really excited to be on at the same time as Otago Rally as well – the city will be humming.”
