Fashion design rookies show off their style

Fashion design rookies show off their style

The AUT University's Rookie Show is back for its eighth year to showcase the talent of the university's up and coming fashion designers. 

The AUT Rookie show will this year include a fusion of live models, film, video projections and a music score commissioned especially for the show. 

"This year we aren’t just putting on a fashion show, this is an event. We gave a hint of this concept in 2012 with a live band, but we have taken the ‘show’ aspect to a whole new level for 2013," says Andrea Mikellis, AUT's head of the Fashion and Textiles Department. 

“Our students have embraced this idea wholeheartedly, and are producing work that is sure to surprise and inspire. They are exploring new innovative formats for the presentation of fashion collections and the show will serve as an experimental testing ground for this talented group of designers.”

The show will take place at Shed 10 on Queen's Wharf in Auckland on November 14. Tickets are available for $35 here.
