RL Fashion Show: 10 February 2020


The RL Ladies In Red Fashion Show was presented in collaboration with Larte Restaurant and Studio One Hotel in Studio City last Monday night and was a roaring success!

This wonderful evening was attended by 90 guests who were treated to unlimited pizza and 2 free drinks at Larte restaurant and a marvellous fashion show. The models looked amazing and we are very grateful to L’Atelier Salon (Kojak Building, Motor City) for the wonderful hair styles and to make up artist Riri Bash (bashedbyriri@gmail.com).

Oasis Fashion, House of Colour, and Abati exhibited their beautiful clothes and Hayet Zerelli accessorised the outfits with her jewellery. Everyone looked incredible and the guests were thoroughly entertained
