Mrs GRIGGS (Solomon) (16:05): The Northern Territory has magnificent colour, style and beauty. From the ochre deserts of Central Australia to the majesty of Uluru, with the sparkling blue of our coastal waters and the lush green of our wetlands we are blessed to live in one of the most special places in the world. The Territory provides a perfect backdrop for the striking fabrics and fashions that will be on display during Northern Territory Fashion Week, which starts on 26 October. Northern Territory Fashion Week is growing in reputation and stature. It is a vehicle for showcasing the best Territory fashion and design as well as developing new and sustainable industries in our major centres and indeed the bush. As patron, I am proud to be part of this fantastic, groundbreaking initiative and congratulate CEO Meriel Corbett-Weir and Managing Creative Director Mehali Tsangaris for their vision and drive.

Thanks to supporters Nadine Jones from Southern Cross TV, Miranda Hodge and David Hartford from North Line, Monica Richly from Zise graphics, Greg Ambrose-Pearce, from Kerry's Automotive Group, Harley Paroulakis from Centrepoint Business Centre, Tiffany Manzie from Simon Says TV and the Country Liberal government. Without their support, Northern Territory Fashion Week would not be possible.
