The Dominican Republic Fashion Week took place from the 28th of April through to the 2nd of May, in the Dominican Republic’s capital city of Santo Domingo. The event was a glamourous affair with numerous talented Dominican designers showcasing their fashion creations alongside a number of International designers. On Friday the 30th of May I was lucky enough to experience the Dominican Fashion week for myself, accompanied by a rather jolly group of ladies from Casa de Campo. Our tickets, purchased through the Hogar del Niño were for the Jacqueline Then, Jorge David and Damaris Rubio fashion shows – all of which were spectacular. (To read my lively account of the trip with the ladies, click here – this account focuses a little more on the actual fashion.) The show began with the entrance of 4 very handsome men giving out chocolate covered fruits – this certainly got the audience excited! First on the runway was Jacqueline Then’s ‘Provocateur: resort collection 2011’ a sexy collection of colorful mini-dresses, perfect to provoke admiration in the Domincan’s sultry summer months.

Gorgeous! [nggallery id=369] The final show to hit the runway was the collection by Damaris Rubio, who recently showcased a mini-collection in Casa de Campo during the V Torneo de Polo. This collection was for me, the highlight of the night, with designs for both men and women which were interesting, unique, colorful, beautifully tailored and practical – I fell in love with almost everything!
