TVNZ U is the official broadcast partner of New Zealand’s largest and most anticipated fashion event of the year – New Zealand Fashion Week 2011.
U Channel Manager Maria Mahony says the partnership with NZFW means U will be the go-to channel for the behind-the-scenes look and latest news about NZFW.
“We’re really excited to be the broadcast partner for New Zealand Fashion Week. We’ll be filming U live from the Viaduct Events Centre, with our hosts doing daily LIVE crosses to keep our viewers in the loop with what’s happening throughout the week.
“Plus we’ll be screening highlights of the Fashion shows, both on-air and online at TVNZ Ondemand, as well as offering giveaways and interviews with designers, VIP guests and everyone that makes NZFW the huge success that it is,” Mahony says.
Coverage of the event kicked off on U Live yesterday with hosts Rose Matafeo and Tim Lambourne reporting live from the Viaduct Events Centre.
