An evening at the Ibiza Fashion Festival
In early June we spent an evening at the launch of the Ibiza Fashion Festival, a preview event in anticipation of the full Ibiza Fashion Festival which will take place over multiple dates, venues and locations in Ibiza in 2017.
The event was held at the Mo Restaurant which is located on the approach to Es Cubells in Ibiza, a beautiful location with a great outdoor terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea with Formentera visible in the distance.
We arrived early to a hive of activity and were presented with pre-event drinks and tapas. The food was amazing and we shall definitely be back to visit Mo Restaurant in the future to enjoy their full menu and the ambience of the setting.
After meeting several of the guests and catching up with the organising team who made us feel so welcome we took our seats overlooking the main runway.
The show started with an introduction by Maurisa S Coleman welcoming us to the event and giving us a brief introduction to the Ibiza Fashion Festival.
With the beats pumping the 10 models then took to the runway showcasing each of the 13 fashion houses designs one by one.
It was a great range of styles and designs and highlighted the fact that even something as simple as a swimsuit can be worn and accessorised to make it look exceptional.
There would never be a dull day with these being worn on any beach be it in Ibiza or anywhere in the world. The attention to detail was second to none and the designers really showed that something so practical can also be extremely stylish and head turning.
The event also included some stunning plus size models, which was refreshing to see, and just proves that high fashion can be available everyone irrelevant of their size or shape.
All too soon the show came to a close to a rapturous applause by all and we have to say we were very impressed not only with the designs but by the organisational skills of Karen Windle and Nathan Derbyshire who oversaw the event.
Plans are now under way for the 2017 events which will see the Ibiza Fashion festival launching to the public on multiple dates and venues across Ibiza as well as a special show in London this September as part of London Fashion Week.
We would like to say our own personal thank you to Karen and Nathan for the invite and goodie bag and we are really looking forward the Ibiza Fashion Festival going from strength to strength.
