Emerging South Auckland fashion label Wallflower were crowned the supreme winner of the first Pacific Fusion Fashion Show during a stunning sold-out showcase.

The fashion design competition featured a mix of emerging and established designers showcasing street wear, evening wear, haute couture and ready to wear fashion.

Wallflower designers Wiremu Ruka and Patsy Grace, both Maori, are former students of Sewtech Fashion Academy and were thrilled with taking out the top honours and pleased to nail their first fashion show.

“We were quietly confident about our chances but there were some amazing designers that were part of this so to come out on top is just overwhelming.”
