• Cult Couture: Fabrik Navigators

    Come experience Southside Arts Festival’s premiere fashion event. Held over two days, the Māngere Arts Centre will erupt with an exclusive Pacific couture multi-media show by international designer Lindah Lepou, a fashion market, a fashion competition, and a textile and adornment exhibition. The Cult Couture Emerging Designer Show has five categories this year with the winner of the ‘Supreme Award’ going home with a manufacturing contract, this is Cult Couture as never seen before. In addition, internationally acclaimed cutting edge designer Lindah Lepou has created a one-off Pacific couture show specifically for Cult Couture, which will feature fashion as art works. Drawing on theatre, art and her whakapapa, Lepou will bring forth a dynamic and spiritually infused design showcase entitled ‘AITU’ (Homage to Spirit) as an extension to her acclaimed art exhibition of the same name.
