pur­ple and blue up-lights, bring­ing a dra­matic yet clas­sic el­e­ment to the venue.

Showtime! The pul­sat­ing, ver­sa­tile dance piece ‘Street meets stu­dio’ chore­ographed by Kerry-Ann Henry opened the show and got the au­di­ence pump­ing with an­tic­i­pa­tion. Af­ter, mod­els took to the stage, strut­ting to their own beat in high-fash­ion col­lec­tions and men’s ap­parel that had the women at the edge of their seats. The de­sign­ers in­cluded Carl­ton Jones, Court­ney Wash­ing­ton, Korto Mo­molu, Lisu Vega, Ce­sar Galindo, and Irina Shabayeva.

Though each de­signer brought awe­some de­signs and di­ver­sity to the ta­ble, there were favourites, namely Korto Mo­molu, who left pa­trons awestruck by her Liberia-in­spired colours and prints and, Irina Shabayeva’s sparkling, unique cre­ations that were fun and glow­ing.

Af­ter five years of di­ver­sity and creative tal­ents in fash­ion, Col­lec­tion MoDA con­tin­ues to elec­trify fash­ion in the Caribbean, show­cas­ing new de­sign­ers in the in­dus­try.

The night con­tin­ued with fun and drinks as pa­trons re­cu­per­ated from the ma­jor fash­ion high the MoDA run­way brought.
