    The designer breathed life into traditional blazers, painting them in island cool colors. My favorite of the bunch was this white option, decorated with wings in tones of purple, green, blue and fuchsia.

    DLR Designs offered a decidedly more afrocentric feel, witnessed by patterned halter maxis and floor grazing skirts.

    Heavy prints gave way to more neutral tones: a paper bag pleated skirt worn with a bustier and a denim blue jumpsuit stood out from the selections.

    It was all about vivid colors for Risanne Marti, who brought a welcome dose of sex appeal to the evening. For guys it was all about the bold blazer, while women were outfitted in plunging necklines, abdomen baring two pieces, and short shorts.

    Though we didn’t catch the runway for Tabii Just, I could see from her models lined up backstage that her clothes were the perfect marriage of island flavor with Urban Edge. The New York based founder designs clothing for women with effortless style. You’ll find everything from easy maxis to playful shifts in an explosion of colors.
