See Now, Buy Now: Where To Buy The Looks From The Viva x Together Today Runway Show

Support the local fashion industry by shopping new-season looks

A collective of fashion designers, brands, retailers and PR companies have banded together for Together Today, an online shopping night that goes live from 5pm Thursday 14 May.

Following the impact of Covid-19 on local retail, the unique collaborative event aims to give the fashion industry a boost in terms of morale and revenue - offering fashion lovers special deals for one night only, including discounts, gifts with purchases, giveaways, and more.

The event, live between 5pm and midnight on Thursday night, will be hosted on each brand’s individual online store with their special offerings and new season autumn/winter 2020 collections, and collectively hosted at Together Today - where customers can peruse practical information about the event including a directory of all participating brands and retailers.

Nom*D founder Margi Robertson says now is the time to come together as an industry. “NOM*d is serious about supporting the New Zealand fashion industry. This is a shout out to all our customers and the industry to say that we are together, today.”

Designer Wynn Crawshaw of Wynn Hamlyn says the initiative is also a chance to stay motivated as a young brand. 

“The support from New Zealand for Kiwi designers over this time has been huge and we have felt it. It's nice to support it back and get involved in an initiative that brings Kiwi brands, of all sizes, together for one night. This kind of offer really helps us to keep the momentum going in our business and gives us a new opportunity to talk to our customers.”

To mark the event, we've put together a runway show of some of the brands participating, featuring a fun mix of models, muses, friends, and designers themselves at home - all wearing current autumn/winter 2020 collections that you can purchase now or pre-order.
