MIROMODA the Indigenous Maori Fashion Apparel Board (IMFAB) was founded as an organisation instituted to advance the quality status of Maori fashion design and to raise its artistic and professional standards.
And to also define a code of ethical practices of mutual benefit in public and trade relations; as well as promote appreciation of the fashion arts through leadership in high quality and aesthetic discernment.
Miromoda is therefore committed to nurturing the development of the fashion industry’s Maori designers and its initiatives will provide support and strengthen resources for students at high school, tertiary and post-graduate levels. In addition, Miromoda envisages offering support to working designers in the early stages of their careers, and should they require it, mentoring throughout their future. This includes international profile and participation. However, Miromoda is mostly Government funded for two key events and seek additional sponsorship to ensure the best possible support for Maori designers in the Miromoda Showcase at NZFW, as well as the sustainability of Miromoda going forward. Miromoda are committed to a future of Maori playing a pivotal role in the fashion industry and to be commercial players.
MIRO is the technical term used in traditional Maoriweaving for twining fibres.
