Fashion house gets behind Awards

Thursday 01 January 1970

New Zealand’s most luxurious leatherwear and knitwear fashion house, BONZ Queenstown, has announced its support of the iconic Hokonui Fashion Design Awards by signing up as a major sponsor for 2012 and 2013. In its commitment to the awards, BONZ is recognising the artistry, design talent and craftsmanship involved in the production of high fashion knitwear.  The BONZ Knitted Award for Machine Knitted and the BONZ Knitted Award for Hand Knitted designs is expected to drive entries from designers and knitters who are as passionate about yarn as BONZ owner Bonnie Rodwell.

“Knitwear design is in my blood, I’ve been doing it for nearly 30 years,” she said. “During that time I’ve employed well over 2000 hand knitters to create beautiful wearable garments that last a lifetime, for my stores.” 

Ms Rodwell said she was looking forward to supporting emerging designers by getting involved in Hokonui Fashion Awards.
