It isn't the norm that one finds the majority of the turn-out dressed in an impressive, fashionable, non-overtly done manner, but this time, that was the case.
Playing on the term fashionably late - it seemed many took that term to the literal sense, arriving an hour after the set time. But they certainly made up for it in the fashion stakes.
Another dashing picture to note on the red carpet was Dimitris Kosvogisnis, general manager of Grand Palladium Resort and Spa, who wore a smart silver double-breasted suit and a crisp white shirt. He partnered his suit with bags of enthusiasm and charm, and what a wonderful conversationalist. Racing after him on the carpet was assistant vice-president and head, Treasury & Trading at Scotia Investments, Greg Samuels, proudly wearing a Karako suit and a Blair Underwood shirt; not one to shy away from sharing what he was wearing and, why so?
