Beauty, food, and fashion, all in one place - what more can you ask for at the Women's Leadership Initiative's (WLI) 'BFF Summer Fashion' Brunch last Sunday at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel?

It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon - among friends and with good food, as the non-profit organisation aims at 'building bridges for a better Jamaica', through aiding various charities.

The Pegasus ballroom was transformed into a runway as six of the most creative designers and boutiques in Jamaica showcased their collections, dubbed 'Summer Fashion' - Signatures, Bohemian Belle, Heather Laine, Courtney Washington, Karmen's Kollection, Flirt Boutique, and Ammars.

Just before the models took to the runway, guests made their way to a delectable treat at one of the two buffet stations stocked with jerk chicken, barbecue pigstail, vegetable lasagna, red snapper fillet with tropical salsa, bread and butter pudding, lemon and caramelised honey tart, mango and passion fruit cheese cake.

Entertainment was provided by DJ Ash of Coppershot who kept the audience entertained with the latest R&B, EDM and reggae hits.
