They were only a few hours away from work, but already the judges were impressed with what they had seen.

Fashion designers Rachel Easting and Anjali Burnett of Twenty-Seven, Juliette Hogan, who has her own design label, and Steve Dunstan of Huffer, were in Gore on Thursday morning to begin judging the 258 garments entered into the MLT Hokonui Fashion Design Awards, the nation’s oldest amateur designer show.

Hogan said the entries she had already seen were “stunning”.

“It was very cool to see the breadth of creative talent coming through,” Hogan said.

“The future of the industry looks good if we judge by that.”

In addition to judging the entries in the open sections, the judges would also evaluate the creations that had been entered in the school sections.

There are two new categories this year, the Country Living Narrative Award and the Cardrona Distillery People’s Choice Award.
