Taongahuia Maxwell is an emerging designer who has been given the opportunity to showcase her works next week at New Zealand Fashion Week in Auckland.
This is Maxwell's first-time showcasing her works at Fashion Week so she’s putting all her energy into designing.
“I hadn't taken it seriously until I finished full-time work and started plotting around again on the sewing machine and found a love for it again,” says Maxwell.
The emerging fashion designer gets a second crack at the runway after entering the Miromoda show last year.
“[I'm] really humbled but really excited as well, I'm really thankful for the work that Miromoda do to help emerging designers get on their feet and get a look into the world of fashion.”
Next Thursday her designs will hit the runway at NZ Fashion Week.
