Rural Women New Zealand are again the primary sponsor for the 2018 WoolOn Awards.

RWNZ national president Fiona Gower says the WoolOn Awards celebrate the skilful, creative people who are involved in the wool and natural fibre fashion industry.

"This important partnership between RWNZ and WoolOn signifies our commitment to encouraging and celebrating enterprise in rural communities," she said.

"The event, which this year held in Alexandra on Friday/Saturday, August 17 and 18, showcases a visually engaging display of high-quality finished garments using quality wool fibre," says Fiona.


WoolOn co-chair Leonie Williamson says that Rural Women New Zealand's strong support of local communities and rural businesses is an inspiration to WoolOn as they look to showcase wool design in New Zealand.

"Our team is delighted to have RWNZ back on board as primary sponsor for our Annual Awards where each year, audiences are treated to a visual extravaganza display of fashion garments from local and national designers all of whom have incredible skills..
