Harmony | Rangimarie seeks to highlight the multicultural crucible that is Rotorua. In addition to our homeplace becoming New Zealands first official bi-cultural city, we tautoko and show respect for the knowledge that we are built upon the ancestry and settlement of also Dutch, Chinese, Irish, Kenyan, Turkish, Phillipino and many more: in fact all the blood that runs through the veins of our people, runs also through the unique culture of our city. Harmony | Rangimarie is an understanding that together we can make something greater than we could
Harmony | Rangimarie is a coming together of community members, artists, designers and models – volunteering their time to help create this magical space and offering opportunities between each other to network and build each other up in spirit and skill sets. We anticipate this to be a highly successful industry event with experiential elements unlike any other.
This is a Charity Production, incorporating fashion, art and technology: with profits going to further the mahi of grassroots co-operatives who operate outside government funding. These are the people helping people- using the skills they have to bring real change from the ground up.

Harmony | Rangimarie fashion experience is a project only made possible by a strong management team focused on delivering quality and building each other up as creatives and social entrepreneurs.
