Hosted by the Southland branch of Able Southern Family Support, the event had 14 entries in the fashion section.

Retired Able support worker Jenny Campbell said entry numbers were up from last year's inaugural event - ''we've got people from Oamaru, Dunedin, Queenstown and Invercargill.''

Model Toni Hutchings showcased one the entries in the show, and kicked off the fashion-focused part of the event, while other artists such as ukulele groups and accordion players performed during the interludes between models' walks.

Costume materials varied, the range including bark, newspaper, cardboard, feathers and more.
