Kiwi Property announced today that it will be an official sponsor of the upcoming season of Project Runway New Zealand.

The show, hosted by Kiwi supermodel Georgia Fowler, will showcase emerging Kiwi designers competing against each other to prove their resourcefulness, creativity, and sewing skills.

Kiwi Property will be the official sponsor of the ‘Accessory Wall’, which longtime Project Runway viewers will recognise as a series mainstay. The Accessory Wall provides outfit-completing shoes, hats, jewellery and bags for the designers, all from retailers selected from Kiwi Property Shopping Centres.

Shelley Jenkin, Kiwi Property’s Manager of Shopping Centres, has said she’s “really excited to be partnering with TVNZ on Project Runway New Zealand. At Kiwi Property, fashion is a staple of our shopping centres and by supplying product for the Accessory Wall we are inspiring New Zealand fashion for all Kiwis.”

This inspiration goes further than the screen, as five constantly-changing Accessory Walls will be popping up around the country at Sylvia Park, LynnMall, Centre Place, The Plaza, and Northlands. Kiwi Property’s expert resident stylist will be producing accessory ‘how-to’ articles, shared on social media and their blog.

Project Runway New Zealand airs on TVNZ 2 this September.
