Auckland is the perfect venue for style-minded visitors to New Zealand with its mix of quirky and cutting edge boutiques and stores in the city. Auckland is also a great place to the international fashion community to come together, especially during Auckland Restaurant month when the bar and restaurant scene is buzzing with locals and visitors alike. Auckland is establishing itself as a destination for flagship international stores and outlets and New Zealand Fashion Week is a great way of showcasing the city.

The ANZ Viaduct Events Centre is the perfect venue to host this year’s event. Situated down on the viaduct just across the bridge and close to the trendy Wynyard Quarter, there are plenty of things going on all around to keep visitors entertained in between shows. There is also a great selection of bars and restaurants who will be excited to welcome visitors from around the world.

Book your accommodation
