Vodafone Dumps Sponsorship of Dunedin Fashion Week

NZ Herald article:


Shame on you Vodafone!!?!

Apparently, "the company's sponsorship strategy focused on sport and music".

Think about it, what fashion designer/follower/addict/victim would be seen without the latest "must have" mobile glued to their perfectly formed, bling adorned ear?

I can't admit to having much to do with the fashion industry (most of my clothing has my employers or Cisco's logo on it), but this is a real kick in the guts for Dunedin.

Hey Telecom!! What an opportunity to get one over on Vodafone!!
