Seven local designers, Friday last, put their threads on display for style enthusiasts and fashion critics who filed into the Urban Development Corporation (UDC) Southern Car Park for City Style – Part 2.

A dozen golden models in shimmering headpieces opened the show in dramatic style, raising expectations of what would be a fashion spectacular.

Moses Fennel's seven-piece mini collection was the first to grace the runway, followed by Janseen Graham, who unveiled a 20-plus-piece Spring/Summer collection dominated by hues of white and floral prints as well as formal wear.

Horn Edge Fashion's Oshane Hinds reaped much applause for his elaborate ode to the avant-garde which included jackets embellished with glass and tightsuits made for two — definite crowd-pleasers.

The pair of Rico Vassel and Mercy-Ann Copeland found favour too, with Vassel opting for pants paired with jackets and hats, and Copeland unveiling a collection of largely billowy pieces.

Desmond Onfroy's African-prints-meet-modern-cuts style was a veritable display of cultural retention- meets-the future and segued into Amedyss by Nina from designer Karlene Levy — a crochet line of bikinis and dresses — the final presentation for the night.

Minutes late, but well worth the wait was the verdict on the Saint International Styleweek event, when Peters marched his army of Saints — wearing pieces from a designer of choice — down the runway for the grand finale where they, together with Urban Development Corporation CEO Dr Damian Graham, brought a close to a memorable Friday night of fashion.
