Glitz: Royal Oasis Rooftop Fashion Show

Last Friday December 6, to launch its fabulous rooftop terrace, Royal Oasis hotel organized an international fashion show featuring renown models from Europe and USA as well as many promising young Haitian talents.  Royal Oasis will donate Parts of the profits to Happy hearts foundation (HHF) a foundation owned by supermodel Petra Nemcova who announced that the funds will be used to pay the teachers of a school in Cite soleil (Ecole des archange).

With “Glitz” as a central theme (logical since the main sponsor was Taittinger champagne), the rooftop welcomed the audience with an all white breathtaking decor and hint of old Hollywood glamour, works of the talented event planner and designer Johanne Gardere from Caprice Events.

The night delivered everything it had promised and more from a surprise performance by Jperry to a titillating fashion show which proved to be one of the most professional fashion shows ever held in Haiti.

Host Luc Merville opened the show with a short yet touching video about Nemcova’s Happy Heart foundation. Soon after, the international models and a few Haitian models graced the catwalk modeling the clothes and accessories of stores such as Karma, MOI and Le Boudoir for women and Ibiza featuring Hugo Boss and BOGOSSE clothing line for men. The show stayed true to it’s theme by delivering a “glitzy” show with dazzling evening dresses and suits.
