They were so many impressive brands on the night such as Dihdah, Seddy, Eccentric Style Loft and Botocy Creations just to name but a few and they all brought their A-game. The fashion show was also meant to develop and create a market for local designers to sell their products to individuals and retailers as well as developing the local fashion industry in a much more sustainable way.
