International Freight

Please note that international designers who do not send their garments to New Zealand via Mainfreight will need to pay for the return shipping of their garment.

Small garments may be cheaper to send to and from NZ via your local postal services rather than by Mainfreight, due to the handling and customs fees payable.

Some specific conditions for international designers to follow when sending garments to New Zealand are:

  • If using Mainfreight, packed garments must not exceed more than 1 cubic metre in volume. This can be made up of more than one box as garments packed firmly in smaller boxes are much safer than those loosely packed in oversized boxes.
  • When filling out your documentation please ensure you mark the box containing your garment with ”Temporary Exhibit Only. Not for retail sale” and use a nominal value for your garment (eg. Less than AUD $100 or US $150). Please note that this is not a reflection of the true value of your garment, it is merely for customs purposes – you may insure your garment to any value. Mark your garment as ‘Deliver Duty Paid’. Garments not sent with a nominal value will incur additional customs charges, payable by you, the designer, before the garment is released into New Zealand. This will delay the garment’s arrival in Nelson.
  • When shipping to New Zealand ensure that the contents plus any biological material are fully declared on the package and customs declaration. All costs must be covered by the designer. Visit the Ministry for Primary Industries’ website for more information on importing your garment into New Zealand visit https://www.mpi.govt.nz/importing/. If you have a specific query you can also email info@mpi.govt.nz or phone +64 9 909 3030 (option 6).
  • Before entering a garment that uses animal or plant products, establish whether the products are protected by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).
  • Ensure that your entry is accompanied by the necessary export documentation from the CITES authority in the country of origin.
  • Please print and use the official address label generated as part of the online entry process to ship your garment. Designers must complete the required documentation and pay a documentation fee that covers a customs clearance and return handling fee.  If using Mainfreight please pay your fee to the depot where you deliver your garment.
  • It is the designers’ responsibility to insure their property from the time of its dispatch through to its ultimate return.

 

Freighting Your Garment

Here are some points to note before you freight your garment to us:

  1. Ensure your garment is packaged carefully and is easily transportable. Do not send in heavy packaging such as wooden boxes or old wardrobes.
  2. Designers are responsible for packaging garments securely as if the garments were being couriered separately.
  3. Garments packed firmly in smaller boxes are much safer than those loosely packed in over-sized boxes.
  4. It is the designers’ responsibility to insure their property from the time of its dispatch through to its ultimate return.
  5. Boxes must have a return address clearly marked. Please note your garment may not return in the same box, therefore please make sure we have clear documentation showing your return address.
  6. Photographs and relevant details on how the garment is to be worn and how to put it on MUST be included.
  7. Unselected NZ entries will be returned to designers by 30 September.
  8. Selected New Zealand entries and all international entries will be returned to designers by 31 January with the exception of garments temporarily retained for display in the World of WearableArt® Gallery in Nelson, New Zealand.

Calculating Cubic Meterage

Designers using Mainfreight sponsorship are allowed more than one box but must not exceed a total cubic meterage of 1.0 cubic meters.

To calculate cubic meterage, measure your garment (when firmly packaged) in meters and multiply length x width x depth.

For example:

Box 1: 0.8m length x 0.6m width x 0.35m cubic meter = .168 cubic meters
Box 2: 1.3m length x 0.85m width x 0.55m cubic meter = .607 cubic meters Total cubic meterage:
Box 1 + Box 2 = .775 cubic meters
