We put together a bunch of fashion week highlights for your perusal. Enjoy!
1. Best Model
Dani Hayes, the previous winner of New Zealand's Next Top Model, seriously rocked the runway. She stood out in each show that she walked. She was able to pull off a number of different styles, from street to feminine and everything in between, showcasing her versatility.
2. Best Designer
The New Generation and Graduate designers were bursting with fresh and original talent. Everything from structure to detail was carefully considered, and the clothing was unmissable. It's great to be daring and different, and the names Olli, Cecilia Kang Couture, Caitlin Crisp and Havilah are now entrenched in our minds.
