Miromoda

(October 2011) Red, white and black is the favoured palette for Maori political parties – Maori and Mana. Dozens of kapahaka performing arts costumes use it and it is seen on kowhaiwhai panels of meetings houses in scores of marae scattered throughout the country. Equally significant and topical, is its use on the tino rangatiratanga flag of Maori Sovereignty.

    Amongst the 200 VIP guests, a large group of French visitors, and a cluster of business people, hosted by New Zealand Trade & Enterprise were suitably impressed. “They loved every minute of the dinner, exhibition and show,” says Paris based Ariane Gonzalez, Trade Commissioner for New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, who hopes to discuss opportunities for Maori fashion in the future with Miromoda organisers.

    Miromoda cofounder, Ata Te Kanawa said, “We were so excited to host the French business people as well as other diplomatic guests that we completely overlooked the pressure on ourselves to impress the international fashion eye.” Adding, “Imagine the relief when they were saying things like ‘magnifique, brillante’ and how Miromoda should show in Paris.”
