Misty Ratima, Certificate in Fashion Apparel (Level 3) Student
A star achiever in the Hokonui Fashion Awards, EIT student Misty Ratima was inspired by the Māori celebration of Mātariki.
The final-year fashion design student won the national competition’s Auaha Special Award, an open category which celebrates innovation and creativity. Her entry, a dress and steep-collared jacket, features a front panel of intricately woven diamond shapes symbolising the Seven Sisters of Mātariki or Pleiades cluster of stars.
My original research contribution to Māori Knowledge & Development has been in two main areas, urbanisation and tribalisation. Urbanisation as a phenomenon has received little serious attention outside of the work Joan Metge in the 1960s. There has been a tendency to treat urbanization as the antithesis of traditional Māori life even though 80% of Māori live in an urban situation.
