The Remix Lifestyle Awards are back for another year, exploring all of the wonders that Auckland has to offer and seeking to champion the individuals, brands and businesses that are changing the game. We’ve rounded up the best in the biz for cuisine, fashion, beauty, entertainment and business, giving you the opportunity to support your local heroes and cast your votes, and along the way discover your newest bevvy destination or your next beauty cabinet addition.
The fashion industry, especially in times of social media, is rapidly growing. Supporting local designers or businesses and brands who are making the right moves from inclusivity to sustainability is super important, and Remix’s 2023 Lifestyle Awards contain no shortage of trailblazing names.
