A mix of socialites, fashion bellwethers and media personalities stepped out Monday night to support the launch of Mission Catwalk Season 5: The ‘All Stars’ Edition at Wray & Nephew’s @twentythree on Dominica Drive in New Kingston. With gigantic LED screens mounted around the exquisitely decorated space, attendees (sipping cocktails and munching on hors’ doeuvres) got a sneak preview of what’s in store for the season that’s bringing back 12 of the most talented and memorable contenders of the past four years to battle for five million dollars worth of prizes. “The best of the best,” as hostess and executive producer Keneea Linton-George explains. Here, TALLAWAH captures, photo-diary style, a few of the faces who were in attendance at Monday’s launch:
ACTION FIGURES: It’s a deal! Brandon Ferguson (left) and Brian George were on hand representing for Jamaica’s fashionable men.
CURVES AHEAD: Oozing fierceness all night, hot mamas Kerry-Ann Murray, Jodi-Ann Blackwood, Stephanie Williams and TV hostess Yanique Barrett gave their best poses.
‘STARS’ R US: Enjoying the relaxing vibe inside @twentythree, Season 5 contender Ayanna Dixon (left), with girl pals Stacy-Ann Sutherland and Kimberly Adamson, scored the best seats in the house.
LADY OF THE HOUSE: “Competition is a good thing, and I’m really looking forward to competing against these other talented Caribbean designers,” the statuesque Shenna Carby, Season One winner, dished to TALLAWAH. Growth and development, she says, is key. “I’m stilll learning, so one of my main goals is to produce even better quality designs and a stronger finish. Those are my expectations.”
