Queen Street Fashion Show

Heart of the City is delivering a new event as part of next year’s 10 days of Fashion in the City. This event will take place on Queen Street on Saturday 8 March - a key shopping day and a key day during the Fashion in the City event. The event is being held to celebrate the central city’s status as a fashion destination and encourage patronage of the city’s retail stores.

The event is a catwalk show with 40 models showcasing 80 outfits selected from central city retailers. The outfits will be styled by Kylie Cooke (best known for NZ’s X-Factor and NZ’s Next Top Model). Kylie will be approaching central city retailers in the coming weeks. The garments that will be showcased will be available and in-store in early March, 2014.

A high profile MC will also be engaged to entertain the crowd and announce the show and a high profile DJ will provide music and atmosphere.

The catwalk will be raised and installed in a zigzag formation across Queen Street, between Wyndham and Shortland Streets. The catwalk will be set up for sound and music and a big screen will be positioned at the end of the catwalk. Security will be employed to ensure safety of models and the audience.

We are proposing to close Queen Street for the day of the event and as part of our event planning and Council permit requirements we have completed a letter drop to all businesses in the area advising of the proposed partial road closure. If you wish to see a copy of the letter please click here.
