MFNZ Vision

New Zealand’s unique clothing and textile industry inspires better in the world.

MFNZ Mission

We unite the New Zealand clothing and textile industry to create an innovative, full-circle and thriving future.

MFNZ Purpose

We exist because we believe in a future for the New Zealand clothing and textile industry that is inclusive, sustainable and successful.

Membership is open to all members of New Zealand’s clothing and textile community whose values and actions align with the Mindful Fashion mission. We support all industry participants from designers, fabric suppliers, makers, cutters, button-holers, pleaters, embroiderers and more.

We recognise that by working together the industry can pool talent and utilise collective resource to ensure the fastest pathway to successful sustainability outcomes that benefit the wider community.

We need to collaborate, share the burden of challenges, and embrace the opportunities in innovation and sustainability for our industry to thrive.

As Mindful Fashion we are incomparably stronger as a united and collective voice to articulate our sustainability vision for the New Zealand Fashion industry and create positive change.
