A shot of colour was injected into the wardrobes of sponsors and special guests as they took up the call to wear the event's official colour - red.

iD Dunedin Fashion Committee chairwoman Susie Staley launched the week of events by encouraging them all to enjoy the frivolity of fashion and be inspired by the creativity on display.

She also thanked the sponsors who made the week possible, especially the Dunedin City Council and the Caversham Foundation as premier funders and Anderson Lloyd Lawyers for sponsoring guest designer Zandra Rhodes' visit.
