The Rotary Club of Whangarei South is very proud to present to you the 41st Anniversary of the Northland Fashion Awards on Saturday October 6, 2018.

Our major sponsor, Bernina, is celebrating 125 years of helping people to create their fashion designs. If you want to know more about this, talk to Sandy or Tim at Bernina Northland in The Strand.

The Rotary Club has also got many other sponsors behind the show this year to make it a spectacular show-stopping night, so don't forget to show your support to these sponsors too.

The Bernina Northland Fashion Awards was designed to encourage and create a platform for all Northlanders of all ages, to show off their creativity and talent as fashion designers. Over the years, we have seen many of these young designers go on to become WOW winners and world-renowned fashion designers in their own right. Go Northland!


As designing has changed through the years, this year some of the categories have changed too. However, we still have some of the good favourites. New and returning categories this year include: Evening Wear, Avante Garde, Fantasy Fashion, Masquerade, Cosplay, Fashion Design (Adult and Student), Street Wear, Trash to Fashion and all the creative Wearable Art.

Prejudging will be on the weekend of September 15 & 16, and will be held at the People Potential campus, 17 Keyte Street, Kensington, Whangarei. So, with entries closing September 1, and the show on October 6, timing is tight, and the judges will have lots of work going through the outfits and talking to the designers.

This year's show will WOW the audience and start with a BANG – but you will need to come to find out more. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketek or at Whangarei's own Forum North Complex, so be in quick. Doors open on October 6 at 6:30pm with the show starting at 7pm.

Northland's own Mediaworks will be back to MC the night. From the pre-judging, through to the show night, all those taking part, love the world of fashion. We look forward to seeing you there too, as part of the show.
