Get an inside look at day four of New Zealand Fashion Week with our Style Director.

Day Four kicked off with the Wonderful Wool show. My favourites were from Liz Mitchell all in a warm earthy tones, classic stylings in wool and velvet; and Lela Jacobs who added a bold cobalt blue to contrast with the expected black.

The Miromoda Showcase extravaganza was up next which was the culmination of the Miromoda Design competition showcasing indigenous Maori high-end fashion.

Contemporary menswear from French 83 cruised down the catwalk next - featuring slim fit tailoring with a standout digital print suit and flying jacket closing the show.

Kate Sylvester's Electric Dream collection stormed the runway next - bright pink, blue and green colour ways mixed with metallics and soft pinks. The velvet and leather pieces were my favourites including a green velvet sweatsuit and belted leather number.

To close the week was the 20th anniversary show from streetwear label Huffer at Spark Arena. Outfits were styled with cowboy boots with red being the dominating hue. The models walked off the end of the stage at the end of the show and P Money popping up and playing a DJ set ... What a way to wrap up the week.
