There were so many solid designers that presented their collections at Collections MoDA this year - 10 to be exact. It was a great celebration of Caribbean flair meets European luxury resort. However, out of the 10 designers there were only three that struck the right fashion chords and made the biggest impression on the runway - Lubica, Omar Salaam and Spokes Apparel. There were a couple things that stood out about seeing a new collection ... new designs that you have never seen before, new ideas, shapes/structures and mixing fabrics in a unique form that has never been done before. That's exactly what Lubica, Omar Salaam and Spokes Apparel brought to the runway of the 2013 Collection MoDa fashion showcase on Wednesday night.
Lubica's Collection was very soft, ethereal and effortlessly chic. Opening her show with a ballerina performance set the tone for what was to come from the collection. Truly an inspiration from art nouveau! Her collection transitioned from innocent ballerina to a grown and sexy woman out to a gala. A soft blush pink colour pallet mixed with a few other pastel pieces with sheer and chiffon fabrics paired with the perfect pattern cut-outs left many in amazement as each model elegantly ripped the runway. Her headpieces by Karl Brown's Hattitude were great accessories that reminded many of the legendary couture hat designer Phillip Treacy. Lubica has grown in the eyes of Jamaican fashionistas as a designer so it was proud to see the evolution of her 'Dream' collection on the Caribbean catwalk.
