Tawhiao's work to walk the same catwalk as Dior, Chanel and Gautier

I te Whare Taonga Metropolitan i New York Amerika tētahi o ngā tino whakaaturanga e pa ana ki ngā hoahoa kakahu o te hunga rongonui pēnei i a Dior, Chanel me Gautier (GO - TEE - AIR). Ā, tērā pea ka tāpiri atu te ingoa o Shona Tawhiao ki tāua rārangi, nā te kino kē hoki o ana ake mahi. Kei a Wena Harawira tēnei pūrongo.

Kua whakawhiti atu a Shona Tawhiao ki ngā hau nui hei whakatikatika tana haere ki te Aporo Nui.

Nō Mātaatua te kairaranga nei, ā, kua ū tōna waka ki Tāmaki-Herenga-Waka mō te takunetanga whakaatu kākahu hei whakanui i te huihui o Matariki, hei mahi moni hoki mō tana haerenga inā tōna

“I think my work's really popular which is great, but it's all still 'fame' and that's about it.” Says Tawhiao.

Ko te whatu me te raranga harakeke te tuapapa o ana mahi hoahoa kakahu i runga ngā whakaaro o te ao hōu. A, nā te autaia me te auaha o ana mahi ka powhiritia ia e te Whare Taonga Metropolitan i New York.

Ka toru wiki te noho a te ringa toi nei i raro i te maru o te whare kākahu, tētahi wahanga o te Whare Taonga. Nā te rāngai hoahoa kākahu tēnei wāhi i whakatū hei whakatairanga i ngā tino o te hunga rongonui mō te hoahoa pueru.

“The contemporary aspect of it will I might get a bit of inspiration from it all because you kind of get in a slump when it comes to inspiration, so that will be the best thing about the trip,” hei tā Tawhiao.

Ko te tikanga, hei te rua tekau mā whitu o Hongongoi rere atu ai a Shona ki New York, kia ngau i te aporo nui.
