The four of us attended the "Y-ONE" AUT First Year fashion show recently. The pop up show showcased the work of AUT's first year fashion design students who had designed collections with 6 brand inspirations: Lonely Hearts, Moochi, Huffer, Karen Walker, RUBY and Children of Vision. See if you can pick which garments were designed for which brands....

Last week we attended the Auckland University of Technology Rookie 2012 show, a collection of some of the top work from the new AUT fashion design graduates. We were hugely impressed by the variety and quality of the work shown. We left feeling incredibly inspired by the level of creativity exhibited by some of these designers. We took a gazillion photos so we've had to split the post in two. Click through to see the images we loved from the first half of the show. See part two here.

We were invited along to the debut of Amber Whitecliffe's first collection and Emma Highfield's new swimwear range last Sunday. The setting was the picturesque Mount Eden Bowling Club, and coupled with a delicious high tea, the event was one of the prettiest we've been to. If you didn't already know, Amber is one half of the blog, Amber and Hilary. Her collection consisted of delicate florals and lace trims, but it was the pieces that incorporated a couple of cross-stitched fabrics that stood out for us. Emma's swimwear featured frills, bright pink and purple combinations and a pretty floral print. See what we saw after the jump.

We met the lovely Olivia Lopez from "Lust for Life" at NZFW this year and did a mini photoshoot with her during our 'down time' (if there is even such a thing during fashion week!). Here are some of our favourite photos of Olivia dressed in RUBY and looking stunning. If you would like to see more of Olivia's personal style, remember to check out her blog which is based in sunny California and if you missed our FOUREYES post on Oliva, click here to check it out.

Emily is the name behind Australian fashion blog, Little Black Book. While she was in Auckland recently for New Zealand Fashion Week, we managed a quick photoshoot for her blog. We had the best time the night before partying with her at the Huffer party that closed this year's Fashion Week. After no more than 4 hours sleep, shoot day started ridiculously early the next day. Emily wore Ruby and Stolen Girlfriends Club in the photos that definitely had a Spring flavour to them. Click through to see our favourite photos from the fun shoot. To see more pics from that day, head over to Emily's blog.

We were at the opening of menswear label I Love Ugly at The Department Store last week. It's no secret we love floral prints on guys, so we were pretty pleased to see a few different ones appear on some shorts, shirts and jackets. We've been seeing I Love Ugly's Zespy pants, a relaxed-fit low crotch chino, for a while now on the streets and we're now looking forward to also seeing some of their new stuff around. Here is what we saw and liked.
