Counties Cup Day Fashion

This was Auckland's first stop on the road to The Ned Prix de Fashion, the Caci Pukekohe Fashion Qualifiers, and was your chance to score over $2000 in prizes thanks to Caci Pukekohe AND one of those coveted Regional Finalist spots.


It was your chance to bring your fashion ‘A’ game to Counties Cup Day this year.  In addition to being a qualifier for The Ned Prix de Fashion, the lucky woman chosen by our judges as the best dressed oncourse also won an amazing prize pack from Caci Pukekohe, valued at $2000 – how good? PLUS the runner-up took home a facial voucher valued at $120.


Entering was easy.

First: Visit our self-entry booth located off the Service Road at Pukekohe Park (keep an eye out for the fashion signs), have your picture taken by the team there and you were in the running.  The booth opened at 11am and you need to have entered before 1.30pm.

Then: Our judges then reviewed the entrants and selected a Top 10, who were invited to hit the runway to allow our judges the chance to see their looks in person.

Finally: The lucky winner (and runner-up) were announced live on stage and received this amazing prize, Auckland’s first spot in The Ned Prix de Fashion Regional Final and bragging rights to boot.


Remember you’ve got to be in it to win it, so we encourage all women aged 18years + to give it a shot next time.
