Personally felt the first half was gimmicky and tacky but abso-loved the second half, would wear in a heartbeat!

5. Stolen Girlfriend‘s off-site runway show. We were all freezing our asses off but it was so worth it.

6. NZ Weddings Magazine Show: always a fave! Cute little tots strutting their stuff with confused faces + sullen-looking models in floaty phenomenal bridal dresses (the irony) + dapper men in slick suits. What’s not to love?!

7. Andrea Moore‘s hand make-up. I am so going as “Andrea Moore model” for Halloween this year.

8. Trish Peng‘s debut RTW collection. Loved those laser-cut jackets and skirts, refreshing, snazzy change from her usual bridal/evening wear looks.

9. NZFW New Generation Show: Check out ITZME and Wilson Tollope, we think they’re going to be the next ‘It’ designers, we said it first.

10. When Kate Sylvester tore up (possibly) a million Donna Tartt works of literary art and created a literary hailstorm of Tartt-inspired garb. J’adore. Love. Ai. Saranghae. The literary geek in me (almost) imploded.
