Tulloch fourth judge for Hokonuis
Donna Tulloch will return home to take up the fourth spot on the judging panel at this year's Hokonui Fashion Design Awards.
She'll join WORLD designer Denise L'Estrange-Corbet, New Zealand Fashion Week event manager Janey Evett and Auckland designer Jason Lingard at the July event.
Tulloch, who was born and raised in Gore, established her label Mild-Red in 1995.
Now based in Dunedin, it is a well-respected brand both here and overseas as all garments and accessories are made in New Zealand as Donna strongly believes in ethical fashion.
Her 'One York' boutique showcases contemporary jewellery and art alongside Mild-Red's garments and collections.
Tulloch, who has previously judged at the Awards in 2014, said she was looking forward to once again being part of the judging panel and seeing the creativity of the entrants in this year's event.
Committee member Sharee McIntyre said the awards had drawn an experienced line-up of judges this year.
Model auditions for the show will be held on May 28 at the Heartland Hotel Croydon.
Tickets for this year's awards will go on sale on iticket on June 28, or hardcore Southland fans can queue outside the SBS St James Theatre, in Gore, to buy theirs over the counter.
