DAY ONE – Tuesday
RUBY & Liam
RUBY kicked off Fashion Week 2012 with a 60s and 70s theme with fun colours, mixed patterns, fur and sparkle. Liam's collection was 1940s style evening wear with long slinky silk dresses, smart jump suits and tailored coats and trousers.
Cybele’s Nocturne collection really reflected its name, full of dark gothic styles balanced with flirty shapes and notes.
COOP’s AW13 collection features graphic and floral prints, as well as sequinned party dresses and leather trimmed jackets. It is edgy and fun, for the girl who is not afraid to express her personal style.
Hailwood’s show was a mélange of various striking styles, cuts, colours and fabrics for the “Winter State” collection.
‘Don’t Look Back’ is a definite step forward for Juliette Hogan. Signature fabrics and matching shirt and pant sets are some of the range’s features.
Zambesi's Autumn/Winter 2013 show was an eclectic mix of past and present, and a beginner's guide to texture and pattern blocking.
DAY TWO – Wednesday
Twenty-seven names continues its tradition of producing fun, youthful collections with this range, ‘I thought you’d never ask’.
A grand trumpet fanfare set the scene immediately – we were off to a hunting party on an English country estate.
Daring colours, styles and structures featured in Dmonic Intent, Silence Was, Daniel K and Arielle Mermin's New Generation show.
Deryn Schmidt featured wearable suits in pastel and black velvet and wool, as well as brocade and silk evening wear in her collection ‘The Wall’.
The ultimate indulgence at Fashion Week, bridal wear was layered, with exposed backs and dramatic skirts.
Andrea Moore’s ‘The Hunt’ was true to its name with horse and riding-inspired styles, prints and fabrics and a huge range of colours and cuts.
Trelise Cooper's runway show was a visual extravaganza, topped off with an LED light show that started on the goody bags and ended on the models.
Theatre, showmanship, design and an exhaustive knowledge of native birds to brought a visual delight to Kagi's catwalk.
DAY THREE – Thursday
Salasai’s nicely streamlined “Heartland” collection was a mix of wearable cowboy country-style fare and interesting colours, shapes and details.
Items from this range will look impressive when worn individually, but there wasn't quite enough variety to make this a complete collection on the catwalk.
Known for her bright colours and love of prints, Australian designer Charlie Brown did not disappoint when she presented her 'Naughty & Nice' collection at NZ Fashion Week.
Full of angles, drapes, and solid colours, the collection stayed true to the Taylor aesthetic of creative but wearable.
Annah Stretton's "I've got a crush on you" collection was an array of stunning evening wear and cute, floaty day wear, all with beautiful detailing and embellishment.
Stolen Girlfriends Club
The boys from Stolen Girlfriend’s Club have done it again, producing a truly standout show at Fashion Week.

Phoenix – Truly Outrageous
The Phoenix Cosmetics show was an extravaganza of candy-bright colours, music and dance, completely living up to its “Truly Outrageous” name.
Huffer wrapped New Zealand Fashion Week on
Friday with an offsite party at their new store in Takapuna. There was no seating or front row for guests as Huffer showcased their spring/summer collection accompanied by copious amounts of tequila and an exhibition of photos by party photographer The Cobra Snake.
