Fashion Industry New Zealand (FINZ)
The inaugural AUT Art & Design Festival, AD10, was officially launched with one of the first outdoor functions of the season and a VIP preview of the exhibitions on display, which will be open to industry and the public from November 11-14.
Established in 1895, as the Auckland Technical College, AUT now boasts 19,000 students and the festival marks its 10-year anniversary as a university.
While the School of Art & Design has always hosted end-of-year presentations at different locations around Auckland, AD10 brings together student work from the department’s seven disciplines, including – fashion; textiles; visual arts; digital, graphic, product and spatial design.
