It was a stylish night out for Tauranga’s devoted followers of fashion as they got a look at the season’s fashion trends in clothing, eye wear and jewellery.

The Clarence Hotel & Bistro was packed out on Wednesday evening for the launch of Tauranga’s Look Fashion Month and the city centre winter Look Book.

The sold out event attracted fashion lovers to come and see what’s hot this season.

Some of Tauranga’s iconic fashion brands including Repertoire, High St Boutique, Annah Stretton, Hammon Diamond Jeweller, Moochi and Blur Eyewear were showcased in pop up fashion shows, installations and designer talks.

Models from Tarnished Frocks and Divas were also involved, wearing the city’s most stylish, on trend brands and accessories as they walked the floor during the pop up fashion parades.

A $1000 gift hamper from Hammon Diamond Jeweller and a table for eight for this year’s Tarnished Frocks and Diva’s show Xamthia, valued at $1000 were given away on the night, and everyone went home with a goodie bag.
