More than 200 people were treated to canapés and a glass of bubbles as they took their places outside Abacus restaurant in Camana Bay in anticipation of the Nicole Miller fashion show on Nov. 5.
The runway show featured Miller’s “Street Sweet” Spring 2016 collection, with the famous American designer herself in attendance.
The plan was to mimic Miller’s New York and Paris shows, so just as her collection opened at those shows with a break dancer making his way down the runway ahead of the models, the same was witnessed here.
The event was organized by Nicola de Lima of NKY Collections and the Cayman chapter of 100 Women in Hedge Funds, which raises funds “for charities focused on women’s and family health, education, and mentoring,” according to the group’s website.
Cassandra Powell was the emcee for the evening and Christina Bodden, chair of the philanthropic committee for 100WHF Cayman addressed the crowd, along with the visiting CEO of 100WHF global, Amanda Pullinger.
Proceeds from the event were donated to the Literacy Is For Everyone (LIFE) program.
“We were so proud and thrilled to see the community turn out for such an exciting event to support the launch of Global Angels program in Cayman and to close out a successful year with LIFE, our 2015 beneficiary,” said Ms. Bodden.
Ms. de Lima said, “It was a magical evening, and the rain gods worked with us to ensure that it was a huge success. Nicole Miller is nothing less than amazing and we were very proud to take Cayman to the next level in the fashion industry.”
