New Zealand’s Red Dress collection benefits Aids Foundation

Filed by Lucire staff/August 29, 2008/13.52

Following on from the Red Dress show at New York Fashion Week each February, Christchurch, New Zealand will be running a similar show as part of Style Christchurch on November 6. Instead of benefiting the Heart Foundation, the antipodean version will raise funds for the New Zealand Aids Foundation. Huffer, Koila McBride, Sonya Smith, Ruby, Sakaguchi, V&G, Gas, IPG, Stitch Ministry, MisteR and Emma Ford Swimwear are already confirmed.
   ‘The Red Dress Collection theme Lost In Our Own Land looks at the descendants of those who forged our history in blood, sweat and tears. Guests will journey back in time to the early 1800s where the traditions of ancient Māori values clashed with those of early pioneering settlers and colonialism,’ according to the official announcement.
   The show is another initiative from Style Christchurch producer extraordinaire Andhy Blake, who promises to donate 100 per cent of the proceeds from the show’s auction and 10 per cent of ticket sales to the Foundation.
