It's the final day of Fashion Week, with the countdown on for Kate Sylvester's show tonight, which will signal the beginning of Fashion Weekend.

It should be a big show for the designer, who is returning to Fashion Week after a five year absence.

But there's plenty to look forward to before then, with Celine Rita this morning, a New Generation show packed with emerging designers at midday, and COOP, Dame Trelise Coope's diffusion label, showing this afternoon. 

At 3.30pm Jockey will showcase their wares in the Designer Selection show, with top model Nicki Phillips and some of the lads from the All Blacks modelling the grundies. 

Hailwood will also be a highlight, before Sylvester at 8.30pm brings Fashion Week to a close.

But shows will continue throughout the weekend for the public, where designers will show their Spring/Summer 2014 collections - which can be bought in the shops right now.

Some highlights from last night ... 

* The curtain pulled back at Juliette Hogan's Take it or Leave It show last night to reveal a live band, whose garage-grunge sound perfectly suited the aesthetic.

As expected for Hogan, it was full of pretty, floaty dresses and florals - there was a lot of black, but a long white maxi dress worn with white New Balance sneakers one of the strongest looks. We're seeing a lot of white at shows this year - maybe stock up on the Napisan before next winter. Hair was slicked into low ponytails.

* Models at Zambesi strode out in blue boots to Queen's Flash Gordon, and the superhero theme continued with blankets worn as capes and the XXXV logo (signifiying Zambesi's 35 years in the industry). There were oversized jumpers and splashes of colour which we loved - think shots of blue, olive green, and lilac.

Here's the live coverage of today ...
