Above: Loma Elliott was the winner on the night and took home a prize package that included $100 from Edgewater, Flowers from the Greenroom Flower Company, wine and gift vouchers from the invitational designers.
It was a fashion battle at The Edgewater Passion For Fashion event held in Wanaka on Wednesday 20 October.
The event had eight local boutiques showcase their must-have garments with the hit of the night being the Wanaka Design Pioneers competition.
Ten finalists were selected from a list of designers that had entered from as far afield as Perth.
The judging panel on the night included: Terzann Elliott (Mr So&So) , Jane Sutherland and Kaz von Heraud-Parker.
The quality was fantastic and we had a difficult time choosing amongst the garments,” says Terzann.
The showcase was brought to life by 100 local people and 70 models.
There were lots of surprises on the night from party poppers exploding from the crowd to a cellophane dress.
