Fashion for a cause

The RoofTop Bar hosted a sparkling catwalk show of Diana Uylett’s, also known as ‘Bobsy’, designs to raise money for her cancer treatment.

The sophisticated dresses and chic lines raised over CI$6000 for the Caymanian designer who is currently in Miami undergoing chemotherapy.

‘Scruples Through the Years’ featured designs created by Bobsy over the last 20 years.

The crowd was taken aback by the beauty of the gowns and the models and the evening was a great success.

A special fashion show, held at the The RoofTop Bar and Vid Boutaie Lounge in Mary Street raised over CI$6000 for Cayman fashion designer, Diana Uylett, also known as Bobsy.

The money is going towards Ms. Uylett’s medical expenses after she was diagnosed with cancer.

The fashion show was special, because the designs were exclusively Ms Uylett’s glamorous, sophisticated and chic dresses, taken from more than two decades of her work.

MC for the evening, Cheryl Thompson introduced the musical entertainment, which was Florida band Mainstream with local music legend Ed Solomon on congas and vocals.

Silent auction items included several donated paintings. There was  “Nature Series,” by Al Ebanks, John Broad’s “The Kitchen Band,” and Nicola McCoy’s “Moorings.”

Gasps from the audience heralded the beginning of the fashion show as model, Treveen, walked across the lounge wearing a white short puffball dress with black bows, which was originally worn by Miss Cayman in 1987.

Next, Edith modeled a 50’s inspired layered green metallic Marylyn Monroe halter and skirt, actually made in the year 2000

Adrianna wore a stunning long green sequined mermaid gown, and Athena modeled a short, classic, lavender V-neck dress.

Model Lydia wore a gorgeous dark purple velvet evening gown with purple sequined top, long lilac chiffon skirt and matching wrap.

But the highlight of the fashion show was when Treveen walked back through the lounge dressed in a dramatic charmeuse silk wedding gown, hand beaded, with a long princess train and matching gloves.
