The Boardwalk Village in Negril, Westmoreland was alive with style and verve on December 9, as the Runway Ready Fashion Show enjoyed its second staging at the spectacular location by the sea. The event proved to be a memorable experience that surpassed expectations, and all the guests in attendance were treated to a celebration of beauty, glamour, elegance and luxury.

The event got underway with designer Tricia Ann-Marie Bennett showing her Saje’s Exquisite Collection line for the first time. Bennett is known for her unique style of long lines that imbue the designs with elegance and sophistication.

ASD Clothing designs also feature classic men’s-style pants suits and Grecian-style floor-length gowns.

Mutamba by Jackie Cohen

Jackie Cohen of Mutamba fame presented her line of delightfully flowing hand-dyed silk print dresses and cool black and white cotton rompers. Her pieces were inspired by bold African prints and cuts that were similar to tribal wear. One of the highlights of Runway Ready II was the line-up of top notch performers such as Lynval Walker and Francine Tomney of the Sea Star Drummers, who hammered out hypnotic beats as a backdrop for Mutamba’s Afro-centric line.

Beach Whites, an all white boutique located at Boardwalk Village, teamed up with Victoria Brown, a UK fashion designer with Jamaican roots, to create the Runway Ready Fashion Show. Support was provided by Patrick Watt, choreographer and public relation consultant for the fashion industry, and international make-up artist Hannah Sheree, who did a magnificent job of transforming the models’ looks to match the various designs.

Charity proceeds from the event went to Mothers of Jamaica – a support group founded by Stephanie Bell that provides a support system to facilitate a stable and disciplined home environment. The next event – Runway Ready III – is scheduled for Saturday, February 18, 2012, and will feature top fashion labels such as Minka and Kokobeenz.
