Designer Georgia Alice Currie has been awarded the $10,000 DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship this year with her eponymous label, further establishing herself as one of New Zealand’s top emerging fashion exporters.

Now in its seventh year, the DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship is designed to identify New Zealand’s top up and coming fashion exporters and assist them in achieving international growth.

Christchurch born, Georgia decided to enter the fashion industry through a development programme at Australian department store David Jones. Following her return to Christchurch, Georgia set up her own label in Auckland in 2012.

“I am beyond thrilled to have been awarded the DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship,” said Currie.

Georgia Alice is currently stocked throughout Australasia and North America, and through the DHL support will be able to continue to see growth in export.

Other finalists included Sly Guild and Lucy McIntosh.
