I whanake ake te wiki tārai o Aotearoa ki te pokapū o Tāmaki Makaurau. Ko NZ Post te māngai tautoko o te kaupapa ā mo te wa tuatahi kei te taunaki hoki rātou i a Miromoda. Mo te roanga ake o ngā kōrero

E mōhio pū ana te kaiwhakakite i a Miromoda a Ata Te Kanawa, he aha ngā mahi kei mua i a ia mo tēnei wiki.

Engari ko te karere nui ka hāpai a New Zealand Post i a Miromoda.

Hei tā Te Kanawa, “It's a very bold brand shift on their part.  We’re grateful because this validates what we've been trying to do for the last eight years. It's kind of like they have got us.”

Hei tā Sharon Moynagh nō NZ Post, “The purpose of our partnership with Miromoda is basically to help Miromoda designers establish themselves in the industry by giving them logistic know how as they grow.”

Koinei te tau tuawaru mo te Miromoda i roto i te New Zealand Fashion Week. Me te whakapono nui a ngā kaihanga kākāhu Māori, he tau nui tēnei nā runga i te tautoko a New Zealand Post.

E ai ki a Te Kanawa, “I'm sure that designers that we've had in the past will agree with envy.”

Hei tā Moynagh, “With the changing face of how consumers are now buying online, designers need a strong partner help deliver fashion to their followers.”

Tekau ngā kaihanga kākāhu ka whakaaturia i a rātou mahi i tēnei wiki.

Hei tā Te Kanawa, “Five of them are debuting this year but we've invited a Samoan fashion designer as well as a guest.  So we're very excited about that.”
