The final Takapuna Beach Business Association networking function for 2017 was held at Shore City. It was also the first for new chief executive Terence Harpur, who took up his role at the beginning of December. Terence welcomed guests before handing over to Shore City's Olivia Bowers-Galt and stylist Caitlin Taylor. Caitlin provided the guests with an overview of the latest summer styles, encouraging the men to break out of their suits in favour of chinos, patterned shirts and linen jackets. She invited women to consider the latest bright colours and linen looks, and not be scared to try on a pair of summer culottes.
