In the meantime, here’s a quick peek at what a night with the A La Mode Catwalk show will entail.

Born in the Philippines, designer of Amato Couture, Furne One, is no stranger to the decadence and glamour of the bygone years . The  designer now based in Dubai, infuses that which he infuses in his designs.

Berit New York (New York)’s collection encompasses a wild streak in fashion detailing. Fusing materials of various forms and textures, this New York base designer owes part of her knowledge from her Cherokee heritage; having learnt the art of crafting at a very young age.

Valery Kovalska (Russia) who holds the title of the first and only Ukraine designer that specialises in stage costumes for the music and dance shows in her native country.

Fusing soft accents with strong – almost masculine forms is Romanian  designer Belinda Liu‘s forte. She believes that women should be strong but snesitive, seductive but serious lovable but unbreakable.

Kate Williams (Australia) is a British/Autralian designer from the London College of Fashion. Her strength lies in the way she encapsulate couture methodology to ready-to-wear techniques.
