For the second year, Ocean Two Resort & Residences held a fashion show for its guests, showcasing the talent of local fashion designers.
The annual O2 Fashion Show took place last weekend and was part of the Twelve Days Of Christmas initiative as the event showcased for the second day of the 12.
The models featured in the show comprised various staff members from different departments throughout the hotel or their relatives, who strutted their stuff down the runway to the delight of hotel guests.
Kevin Small, 21, of Nivek Designs, presented his collection Ladybird. He said the collection was “elegant but dramatic”,
featuring a mixture of ready-to-wear and runway pieces in predominantly black and white but with a splash of red.
Small said he had been designing for the past six years, starting in costume design. He said it had been an “interesting” experience moving from costume design to fashion. He said the show was an extra avenue to push himself as a designer and was a good way for local designers to showcase their clothing.
“They are fashion shows that are open only to a select few, so I would like [Ocean Two] to at some point be open to many more young and upcoming designers,” he said.
Local designer Alexis Campbell and entrepreneur and owner of the Life & Style Boutique was also featured for a second time, having showcased designs last year.
Operations Manager Paul Collymore explained what the initiative was all about.
“This year at Ocean Two our theme is Twelve Days Of Christmas and each day we are doing something extra special for our guests, in addition to the stellar service and exceptional and memorable holiday experience we provide year-round. The Fashion Show was a huge success last year and I just want to extend my sincere thanks to our excellent team for making it once again another highly successful venture,” he said. (LK)
