Jamaica-born New York-based designer Glenroy March, continues to make a name for himself in the fashion capital and his latest collection Classique D'Marsh did not disappoint.

On Tuesday, September 13, the designer returned to his roots presenting another creative and compelling collection as part of New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 which delighted the capacity sized audience at the new midtown location of high-end European mattress maker Coco Mat.

As a prelude to the Classique D'Marsh presentation, the show opened with student fashion designers Kadeem Lamorell and Marcel Kosmider, from The High School of Fashion Industries, each presenting a look they designed and developed during a six-week internship at D'Marsh Couture - where they learnt about the business of fashion and what it takes to run a fashion house.

A signature of the designer's runway shows over the years is the opening, and this year was no different as the presentation opened with violinist Tia, a Manhattan School of Music alumnae making her melodic runway debut.

Classique D'Marsh represented a return to the designer's roots or the essence of the D'Marsh brand. This season the designer selected some of his favourite silhouettes over the years - recreating a number of looks which embodies the signature colours of black, red and white, and presented 20 looks ranging from cocktail dresses to a couture evening gowns to swimwear and great separates.

Here is a look at the collection.
