iD Fashion Show tickets on sale soon

iD Dunedin tickets will go on sale earlier then normal.

The booths will open mid-November, organisers say.

The iD Dunedin fashion committee will release tickets to all key iD Fashion Week 2013 events,  including the iD Fashion Show and the iD International Emerging Designer Awards on November 15.

Tickets normally go on sale the year of the event.

This week fashion editor Leonie Barlow was in the city to select designers to show in the iD Fashion Show next year.

Barlow, who now runs a fashion blog is former editor of Fashion Quarterly and the Australian Women's Weekly.

''Because iD is so successful and so amazing people have high expectations of this  event,'' she said.

''I really feel an onus on making sure we select the right calibre of designers. The last thing we want to do is be predictable.''

iD chairwoman Susie Staley said her committee hoped to build on 13 years of success by  bringing  a high profile international guest designer with an outstanding collection not seen in New Zealand before to the runway.

The jewel in the iD crown, its International Emerging Designer Awards, is calling for entries by  November 21.
