Misty Ratima won a Hokonui Fashion Award with 'Matariki', a dress and steep-collared jacket that features a woven panel symbolising the Seven Sisters of Matariki or Pleiades cluster of stars. She chose the colours red and tan, alluding to Papatūānuku, and white and silver for Ranginui and the shimmering stars.
