See all the best bits from the catwalks of MBFWA 2019 on day four.

Day four of MBFWA 2019 is a big one. Some of the biggest designers on the schedule are showing today including labels like Thurley, Albus Lumen and Lee Mathews.

Certainly one of the highlights today is the show from Justin Cassin which takes place at the Big Top in Milsons Point. This particular show is doing something a bit different, using celebrities as well as models to show the pieces. Olympian and ex-swimmer Michael Klim, AFL footballer Jaeger O'Meara, Neighbours actor Tim Kano, Instagram heartthrob Lachie Bryckie, and Sydney 'It' kid Nathan Jolliffe will all star in this exciting menswear showcase. With over 2000 guests, this might just be the biggest event in MBFWA history!

Keep reading for all the snaps, posts and info from the shows today - updated live as it all happens. And make sure to check out the rest of our MBFWA coverage.

Day four started off with the lively and graphic resort collection from Lee Mathews. Stripes, spots and contrasting prints were the name of the game at this show.

1pm: Leo & Lin

This year's Leo & Lin show has firmly cemented this designer as a fashion rebel. In 2018 when everyone did suiting, he did princess-worthy ballgowns. And this year when graphic prints and 70s fashion is reigning supreme, Leo & Lin served up a moody collection filled with black netting, Victorian necklines and bold florals. And of course, we saw the return of the designer's signature "moonlight" colour come through towards the end.

It was a dynamic show that had us all wanting more. Look out, this designer is one to watch.

2pm: Thurley

Thurley's dreamy show was everything and more that you'd want from this designer. The label's signature cord textiling was showcased in stunning seaside shades like azure, seafoam and white. The 70s even managed to infiltrate this show with disco metallic and paisleys making an appearance. It was a breath-taking show - even if there were a number of seating issues.

5pm: Azzo

The Azzo show at 5pm was definitely a crowd favorite. This mens swimwear designer served up some seriously summery boardshorts and briefs. We were big fans of the wild plant and fruit prints.

6pm: Justin Cassin

The Justin Cassin show is possibly the biggest show in Australian Fashion Week history. With a host of celebrity models and over 2000 guests, this was definitely the most buzzed about show on the calendar.


7pm: Albus Lumen

Wrapping up day four of MBFWA was the Albus Lumen show at 7pm. This offsite show was a cult favourite - as it always is. This label focuses on premium fabrications, heavy linen, cotton and wool. And it uses these to craft masterful tailored pieces that have a sophisticated European edge.
