Text:Joint winner in the 'Innovation' category at this year's Modus Operandi Fashion Awards, fashion designer Lindah Le Pou last week showed her new collection at the Civic Theatre in Auckland as part of the high-profile New Zealand Fashion Week. The show was the biggest exposure yet for Lindah and her designer label, Dencium Compri. A shortened deadline meant that she had only a month to fully prepare for the make-or-break event. Lindah says the public were "blown away" by the femininity and sexuality of the garments, and there has been great interest already from places as far afield as Toronto, Dubai, Moscow and Lebanon, as well as Austalasia. "I've just come back from a Wellington meeting with a few buyers and discussing potential relationships," she says. "A few garments have been photographed for an Australian magazine and a few New Zealand magazines." Lindah says this collection is only the tip of the iceberg, and will be used as the launching point for a Dencium Compri website which will be up and running in the next week. Lindah, who has also won design awards in the Style Pasifika and Edu-Col competitions this year, is also looking for graduates to work for her label and build on its reputation. "The next step for this collection is to get it photographed for the website, as this is my point of contact worldwide. We'll use it to set up the site and give interested people an idea of what Dencium Compri is all about."
