AUT Rookie is AUT University’s end of year showcase for third year students.  It’s one of the most prestigious fashion events on the Auckland events calendar.


Who: A selection of students are chosen to present their collections in a fashion show event every November. The event is attended by fashion media and industry, AUT staff and students as well as family and friends of the ‘Rookies’.

Why: For graduates the show provides very real and practical experience of the intensity of the fashion industry. The show has proven to be a significant kick-start for the careers of some young designers with many going on to launch their own labels, open their own stores, win awards, and work nationally and internationally with top designers. Rookie is much more than just a graduate fashion show; it is a showcase of the future talent of the New Zealand fashion industry.

Where: Shed 10, Queens Wharf, Auckland

When: 4 November, 2014
