See snaps from the shows and from the streets as it happens at MBFWA 2019 day 5.

It's the final day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia for 2019. Today is a slower day with parties, seminars and events for the fashion crowd to celebrate the achievements of the week – and for many to recover from the massive Justin Cassin show the previous evening.

But there are still some impressive shows on today. The day kicks off with the St. George NextGen showcase which is always one of the highlights of the week. This show features a collection of up and coming designers, the rising stars and future of fashion. Notable alumnus of the NextGen series is none other than MBFWA favourite Anna Quan. So this is definitely a show to keep your eye on.

We'll also being seeing shows from swimwear label Aqua Blue at 11am and cult fave Ten Pieces at 12pm. Ten Pieces has chosen the fabulous Bondi Icebergs as the destination for its offsite show. Finally the day wraps up with a closing show from the ever-chic Carla Zampatti.

11am: Aqua Blue

Aqua Blue certainly had the most diverse catwalk of all the designers this year. There were very tall models and shorter models. There were mature models and younger models. There were straight size models, plus size models and few in between straight and plus. There were male models and even child models showing off the mens and kidswear pieces from the collection. And of course models of all skintones. So, it was a beautiful and enjoyable show to watch.

12pm: Ten Pieces

This year's Ten Pieces show was held at the famous Bondi Icebergs. Models walked through the emptied pool showing off the designs and finished the walk right on the pool's edge, with the stunning Bondi waves as a backdrop.

2pm: Pared Eyewear presentation

This year Pared Eyewear celebrated five year of fashion at MBFWA 2019. Instead of a catwalk show, the brand showcased its eyewear styles on models who stood in artsy boxes.


7pm: Carla Zampatti

The final show of MBFWA 2019 was the Carla Zampatti show. Modern elegance incarnate, this is a brand that always manages to strike a balance between showstopping pizzazz and wearable style. This evening was no exception. To an orchestral tune, models floated down the runway in perfect black gowns, pretty yellow dresses and exciting printed pieces. There was even a few fun metallic styles thrown in the mix - a key trend we've seen from this week.

All in all, it was a fabulous end to a fabulous week.
