Explosions of color and cutting-edge designs were the hallmarks of the recent “Couture Evening” a fashion show organized by Junior Alarcon and Junk Boutique. Eleven local models were selected to showcase the winter 2014/summer 2015 collection at the Buccaneer restaurant in Roatan’s West End.

The vision behind this selection of roughly 15 pieces is displayed in the outpouring of nature. Pure elegance graces the runway with airy lady-like variations of materials and patterns. Elements from the garden represent the focal point for this season. Establishing delicate flower patterns radiates perfection as a cohesive design detail among all the silhouettes.  The overall romantic femininity lures our attention, leaving us wanting more.
