Following its postponement earlier this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021 Edible Fashion Awards is back – in a new format.
An extensive “Designers in Schools” programme delivered across terms 2 & 3 has inspired 100 wearable art designs created by youth designers from across our region, and event director Keli Jensen says it was important to recognize their commitment and dedication.
As such, on December 7, judging will go ahead at the re-envisioned event that will include a series of Designer Showcases on the Opera House stage at Toitoi – Hawke’s Bay Arts and Events Centre, but given COVID limitations will be restricted to an invited whānau audience.
The community can still get involved, however, with an extensive People’s Choice Award campaign following the event in December, and an exhibition of selected designs at Hastings Community Arts Centre from January 24 to February 5.
The increased focus on the People’s Choice Award and exhibition provides a unique opportunity to raise the profile of the event more broadly.
For details on how to join in the celebration and vote for your favourite design, visit ediblefashionawards.co.nz or like Edible Fashion Awards on Facebook.
