Fashion, flair and fun in Edinburgh 500
Tuesday, July 10 2012
On the heels of Tobago’s fashion week and San Fernando’s week of fashion, Edinburgh 500 came alive as models proudly displayed elegance and beauty on the catwalk at The Village Plaza, Edinburgh 500 on Sunday June 24.
The Edinburgh 500 Sports and Cultural Club hosted its first fashion show and tea party, “Mode DeJour.” The club was established on June 1, 1991 with a mission to unite the community through sport, and established its football academy in 2009. The main focus of the Edinburgh 500 Sports and Cultural Club is the development of the youth and the community.
The event created an opportunity for family fun and recreation and fostered a sense of togetherness in the community. It featured models from Edinburgh 500, as well as models from The Divas Plus Evolution Model Management. The models wore exquisite office wear from Dress Solution in Arima, while Kiss and Tell Boutique in Port-of-Spain and Xae Fashions in Arima showcased a collection of casual wear and swimsuits. Other clothing sponsors included PhiQue Mandamne in Tunapuna; and Angel Fashions and Jus Bless Designers of Edinburgh 500.
“Mode De Jour” was indeed a reflection of fashion, flair and fun and represented what is trendy, what is new, and what is “hot”. The models, including children and plus sizes, “strutted their stuff” on the fashion runway in style; showcasing what people are wearing and what people want to wear. The elegance, the beauty, and the comfort all represented “Mode De Jour”, the fashion of the day.
But the fashion wasn’t the only entertainment on the evening. In true multicultural style, there was an Indian dance by Nalini Beharrysingh and an African dance by Sheldon Lara. were also performances by Mandy Alexander and Sharon Salick.
One guest commented, “By the end of the show I remained sitting there waiting for more. I enjoyed myself immensely. It was a wonderful show.”
Stacy Castle, a model from Divas Plus Evolution Model Management for Plus Size Divas, said, “We thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The show was well organised and the people were so warm and receiving of us. The show had a very stylish and well constructed order and layout which helped to make for easy movement and a well coordinated flow.”
President of the Edinburgh 500 Sports and Cultural Club, Philmore George thanked all the persons who supported and contributed to the success of “Mode DeJour.” Preparations for upcoming sporting events are underway in an effort to continue the club’s commitment to achieving community development, through the help of other supporters like AS Brydens, Trin Bone Foods and We Care Pharmacy Limited.
