Arte y Moda comes alive at IWFS

The anticipated highlight of Islands of the World Fashion Showcase (IWFS) went beyond the expectation of the show’s audience and coordinators alike.

The segment got off to a sensational start with a mini opera piece followed by a group installment of live mannequins. Local and international models alike stepped up and embraced the daunting task of literally bringing avant garde designs to life on the runway through interpretive dance and acting.

“It was not what I expected,” said one happy audience member. “I was amazed with everyone’s designs and the art in motion was spectacular.”

The elaborate designs and interpretations were awarded with a standing ovation by a thoroughly energized crowd. The 27-piece collection was a collective effort by the seven Cuban designers at IWFS.

The original art inspirations were projected onto a screen on stage to give an eclectic contrast to the designs which came to life on stage thanks to the models.

“The culmination of the two-day event with the spectacle of “Arte y Moda” was a strategic spectrum of casual prêt-a-porter to red carpet designs to what I have described as the ‘haute couture of art’. The event was professionally staged with an emphasis on the business and cultural diversity of fashion. It is hoped that significantly more Bahamians will have the opportunity to witness such creativity” said Owen Bethel, producer of the event.
