I had the privilege of being invited on Tuesday night to the Spring/Summer 2013 Collection for Keneea Linton titled 'Lady in Red'. Keneea has been a trailblazer in the fashion industry in Jamaica for years and her new collection has proven to be a bonafide hit with fans and critics.
The show began on schedule with music that made you feel like you were in some hip club in Ibiza, fittingly for the chic decor and ambiance. The decorators transformed the Courtleigh Auditorium using special lighting, rare and exquisite furnishings with accent pieces polishing off a modern Asian theme.
Keneea opened the show with the statuesque Althea Liang, Jamaica's very first international super model. Ms. Liang set the stage for a bevy of beauties who followed in timeless designs that had emphasis on cut, fit and attention to detail. Pencil dresses with leather trim at the shoulders were very well tailored and could easily be transformed from work to a dinner date. Her gowns featured plunging necklines with sequins, high low chiffon hem lines that would be beautiful for any holiday formal event. The collection proved to be very wearable, chic and polished; targeting a demographic of late twenties and up. The show closed with the graceful Joan McDonald, Miss Jamaica World 1978, who proved that true beauty is timeless.
Here are some of the photos from the night, be kind, don't forget I am not a professional photographer ;)
