The Aim of Pin’d is to give students a real life situation for their NCEA work and to show case their own garment and textile art designs to the community and industry professionals.

Each year local secondary Technology teachers volunteer together to organize, plan, gather sponsorship so students have an opportunity to showcase their latest fashion designs on a catwalk show at Tauranga’s Baycourt theatre.

The show provides a cross section of garments and textile art, ranging from accessories to upcycling, innovative designs, fantasy and everything in between, attracting audiences and entries from around the region and provides a great evening of entertainment for young and old alike.
