Noel, other designers sizzle at Fashion Extravaganza at New Thriving

Sonia Noel continues to celebrate her two decades in fashion in fine style. At the debut of the Western menu at the recently opened New Thriving Restaurant at Providence, East Bank Demerara, Noel along with other designers presented tantalising pieces that exuded hints of comfort, style and sassiness.
The New Thriving Restaurant opened its second unit above the Massy Supermarket, at Providence, to a very large reception a few weeks ago. As part of their marketing strategy, they will be showcasing various side events monthly as a means of entertaining and giving back to customers. The ambiance created is unlike any on the local scene.Noel 1 Noel 2 Noel 3 Noel 4
The Guyanese fashion icon presented her elegant casual collection of versatile caftan tops and chic colourful skirts, combining them with her signature lattice fittings. The blend of bright eye-catching colours and stylish cuts makes it perfect for a fun afternoon into a smart and fashionable evening switch.
Displaying unique Indigenous pieces, Vanda Allicock did not disappoint. She showcased her one of a kind tie-dye, batik, and hand painted pieces, varying in colour and size. Vanda recently made her debut on the national fashion stage at last year’s Guyana Fashion Week along other Indigenous designers.
Closing off the evening were the enticing swimsuits by Meleesa Payne, a former Miss Guyana Universe and model. The former beauty queen presented hints of her Dark Angel collection which she says is swimwear for women with a flare representing the strength of our women.
The head pieces were designed by award winning costume designers Nelsion Nurse and Deborah Mathias.
There was also an awe-inspiring display of accessories, bags and belts by Sonia Noel and very unique and creative necklaces by Shonta Noel, daughter of the fashion icon; all of which can be found at the newly opened Makin Style Boutique, top floor of the Courtyard Mall on Robb Street. ‘Entertainment with a difference’ will be a month feature at New Thriving Providence.
