Vibrant frocks, food and glasses of bubbles transformed Christchurch's The Colombo mall into a fashionista's paradise on Thursday night.

About three-hundred people attended the Night of Food, Fashion and Design event, which celebrated five years of trading.

Guests enjoyed a 45-minute runway show, with previews of upcoming designs.

Managing Director Caroline Cooper-Dixon called the occasion a "great success". 

"We went through all the drinks, all the food...everything". 

Tacos, burgers and dumplings were offered to guests. 

The Stolen Girlfriends Club, Adidas, and Alice McCall were among the designers showing garments.  

Cooper-Dixon said the atmosphere was vibrant.

"There was plenty of laughter and smiles throughout the night."

The event was held ahead of the Canterbury Fashion Week 2016 Winter Collections & Awards at the Christchurch Art Gallery on Friday night.
