Newshub's Samantha Hayes, Mike McRoberts take to catwalk for New Zealand Fashion Week

New Zealand Fashion Week (NZFW) has ended with a very special event featuring several New Zealand celebrities strutting their stuff down the runway.

The Mercy Hospice show had the honour of ending the annual fashion week on Sunday afternoon, with Newshub Live at 6's Sam Hayes and Mike McRoberts taking centre stage.

Wearing one of the many spectacular dresses Sam wore on her path to Dancing with the Stars NZ victory, the presenter was visibly happy and comfortable gracing the catwalk.

She even managed a quick twirl with a model - showing she's still got those winning moves.

Mike, who Sam said was the mastermind behind the pair's appearance, also seemed to be enjoying his time headlining the closing act of Aotearoa's premier fashion event.

But Mike is no stranger to the fashion world, having walked down the catwalk in last year's Working Style show to what Sam described as "rapturous applause".

Both stars were nervous before the show, but wanted to do their best for a charity they had each been involved with previously.

"I've had a couple of friends go through the Hospice," said Mike.

"Anyone who's had anything to do with Mercy Hospice just knows what an incredible job they do, and the dignity and the compassion they bring to people's lives."

The fun and energetic show featured carefully curated couture clothes from the Mercy Hospice charity shops, with Sam's dress planned to be sold after.

Mercy Hospice provides care and hospice services to people facing life-limiting illnesses, as well as support to their friends and families.
