Twenty-eight second-year, third-year and postgraduate Otago Polytechnic fashion students showcased their work at the Awakening of Future Disruptors show held at the Sargood Centre.
Event organiser and applied management student Grace Young said the show, which was part of the iD Fashion Weekend, was a chance for students to showcase their talent to the community.
The designs displayed a creative edge and flair that the students were proud of, she said.
‘‘Most people probably haven’t seen anything like it before and probably won’t ever again.’’
Finalists of last year’s iD International Emerging Designer Awards were also present.
Students from many fields of study worked to make the night special.
Culinary arts students provided the food and drink, beauty and hairdressing students did the make-up for the evening and the event management students organised the event.
All were themed around the concept of disruption.
The students first found out about the show six weeks ago and had worked hard to make the night special in that short time, she said.
It was the first time they had put on a show of that calibre, she said.
