What’s cool in the
Oversew Fashion Awards — Sunday Matinee The Oversew Fashion Awards, New Zealand’s only upcycled Fashion Awards Show and design competition, is celebrating its sixth year. This year it’s called 'New Beginnings' and includes Some of these changes include several all-new categories: Ath-leisure, Streetstyle, Night Life and Show Stoppers with prizes for menswear and mini collections, young and tertiary designers. What's different about Oversew is that entrants must use at least 80 percent pre-worn clothing as their materials. Designers are encouraged to design with zero waste in mind, which makes for a very exciting brief resulting in some stunning one off creations.

Upcycling not only minimises waste and reduces landﬁll, it could also be seen as a solution to the world wide epidemic of fast fashion and consumption. This is fashion with meaning and a pulse! Once again, the awards team are working with their partner sponsor,
Earthcare Environmental, who has been there from the beginning.
The Sunday matinee show, the only one with tickets still available, begins at the Carterton Events Centre in the heart of the Wairarapa at 2pm, with the doors opening at 1.30pm. (The Saturday Awards night sold out three weeks ago.)
