In their efforts to raise funds for the St Benedict’s Children’s Hospital and Grade six student Onelia Cato, the Mije Junior and Teen models held a fashion show at the Peace Memorial Hall on Sunday, February 6.{{more}}

Under the theme: “Reaching out through fashion”, the show saw some of the latest trends in fashion gracing the catwalk in fine style.

To kick-start the show, the St Benedict’s Steel Band played the anthem and another musical piece.

The show featured designs from Kidz Town, Afrobbean Designs and Made to Fit Designs. Some of the sections included: Divarized, Soulja Boys, Soldier Girls, We are fabulous, The Explorers, Love comes in all colours, Whip my hair, Wrapture, Cool guys, Pot pourri, Tribute to love, All dressed up and From Africa with love.

With all the right poses and facial expressions, the young models had the crowd eating right out of their hands all afternoon.

The designs were certainly a hit with the young children seated at the front of the Hall,as they were seen discussing the items worn by models as they sashayed along the runway.

Jean Johnney-Findlay said Cato, a student at the Kingstown Preparatory School, is undergoing treatment for a spinal condition, which requires her to wear a brace for 23 hours a day. “We know she has to undergo constant therapy and treatment, which is expensive, so part of the proceeds will go to her,” Johnney-Findlay explained.

She noted that Mije stages a show each year for the children, after which they donate the funds to the St Benedict’s Day Nursery and Children’s Home.

Guest performances came from Angelina Questelles and Arabesque Junior Dancers.
