Presented by our eighteen models from both FIS and other international schools, collections from luxury brands including OhLàLà, Zhor & Néma, Alfi, Label Chic and Dudes caught the audience’s eye. The night also saw live Twenties performances from our singers, Liz Bousser and Owen Henderson, Amel Fouad, and our accomplished trio La Garçonne as well as a spectacular dance performance from Anna de Courcy.

Deborah Kim and Lola Bezançon captivated the audience with their contemporary clothing collection of 5 outfits, inspired by their multicultural background whilst staying true to the signature theme of the twenties.

Then came our annual Les Trophées de la Mode competition where guests were left dazzled and impressed by our twenty four Roaring Twenties outfits made only from recyclable materials.

Congratulations to our 2018 winners all chosen by our esteemed panel of judges – Angus Tsui, Marina Peline and Mui Wong.

Enfin dans le cadre de l’objectif final de Couture de sensibiliser sur l’importance du développement durable dans l’industrie de la mode, la soirée s’est poursuivie avec le défilé des collections de Jimmy Ku et de Herlina Wijaya de l’association Redress, suivi d’un discours d’un membre de Redress, Malique Goldin.

Couture a offert l’opportunité aux élèves de sortir de leur zone de confort et d’ouvrir leur esprit à de nouveaux horizons, que ce soit en termes de création, conception, ou gestion d’événement. Et c’est grâce à leur travail rigoureusement éthique, au soutien des sponsors, du LFI et aux encouragements infinis et à la motivation de la direction, Mme Isabelle Bezançon, que Couture 2018 s’est transformé en un véritable succès !
