Three emerging designers from our Bachelor of Design with Honours in Fashion programme have been selected to show at New Zealand Fashion Week.

Each year a select number of graduates from universities around the country are chosen for Fashion Week’s Graduate Show, and in 2019 Johani Louw, Kimberley Franklin and Kyra Thomson will represent Massey.

Senior Lecturer and Major Coordinator of Fashion, Sue Prescott, says the three designers demonstrate the high calibre of graduates that emerge from Massey’s fashion programme.

“Massey produces world-ready, work-ready fashion graduates and these three young designers demonstrate the high standard of work, entrepreneurial acumen and capability shown by Massey graduates.

“The opportunity to show at Fashion Week gives these graduates the chance to show their work to a highly influential audience of industry insiders, and they gain invaluable experience by taking part in a professional fashion show,” she says.
