Mo te wā tuatahi ka tū te whakaaturanga kākāhu o Miromoda ki Porirua āpōpō.  Kei te whare taonga o Pataka te whakaaturanga, ā, tokowhā ngā kaimahi puerū Māori, otira ngā kaimahi puerū nō Korea me Awherika. Kei a Aroha Treacher ngā kōrero.

E waru ngā tau mai i tō rātou whakarewanga, a, e tipu tonu ana a Miromoda.

E ai ki tetahi I whakarite te kamupene Miromoda a Ata Te Kanawa says, “This is definitely a first for them and a first for us and we also offered to do a model call there and use local models if we could, so it's got a nice community feel to it this year.

He huarahi tēnei mā ngā kaiwhakaatu pueru kia angitū ai rātou i te ao pueru, kia mahi ngātahi ai hoki ki ētahi o ngā mātanga.

Hei tā Te Kanawa, “We are actually choosing two for our NZ showcase at fashion week, so there are a lot of excited models and their whānau awaiting that announcement which will be on Saturday as well.”

Mā tēnei whakaaturanga e āhei ai nga kaiwhakahoahoa pueru ki te whakataetae pueru o Aotearoa. Te papa whakamānū i ngā kaimahi pueru Miromoda o mua pērā i a Shona Tawhiao me Kharl William Wirepa.

“Some of our designers have actually got solo shows this year or are in new generation show so it's nice that Miromoda is now contributing to the whole New Zealand Fashion Week machine that it is,” hei tā Te Kanawa.

Inainei ko te whakatika i nga mahi mo apopo. Ka haere te kaupapa mo te roanga o te ra, a mai te haurua i te ono ka timata te whakakitenga o Miromoda.
