Each year, Ara presents Pitch, an end of year runway show for students in Fashion.
Pitch presents work by all students in our fashion programmes. The show is professionally staged with all the glamour trimmings. Industry heavy-weights attend as judges, and audiences are regularly wowed by what our students achieve. The highlight is always the final collections by Year 3 students, these represent the outcome of three years of study and work, and for some, the start of a great career.
Pitch also offers a chance for aspiring models to break into the business. The Model Auditions are held in October at the Fashion School. Every year one amateur model is awarded a Portfolio Model Agency contract, the gateway to a professional career.
Pitch has become a recognised and innovative fixture on the New Zealand fashion calendar, supported and endorsed by many of our most established designers and influential fashion industry representatives.
