Creatives and models alike took to the runway last night at the Bill Richardson Transport World for the Fibre Octave World of Wearable Art and Music Extravaganza in Invercargill.

Southland high schools James Hargest College, Southland Girls' High School and Limehills took part in the first year of the Schools Section, while other Invercargill-based designers entered their works into the Open Section Wearable Art.

After months of planning, Fibre Octave and its organisers succeeded in filling the room at Transport World with masterpieces created out of recyclable materials.

Each piece had a message, from women's power in the construction industry to calls for action on climate change, each outfit telling a story in a way that delighted the audience.

Special performances from the Invercargill Rock 'N' Roll Club and a band made up of local high school students helped to showcase the talent the city had to offer.
