#Hautember | Moda Cru Date 2017

Every country has an event that ranks high on the Social Calendar of Socialites and Fashion Enthusiasts alike -- for the city of Kingston, that event is the Collection MoDA! 

On Thursday last, Cru Bar was the place to be as scores of Kingston's "makers" gathered for the event dubbed as "Cru Date". This is the kick off event for the popular fashion event series "The Collection MoDA" expertly curated by Event Director of the MoDA series Kerry-Ann Clarke.

"This year it's all about "the makers" as the Collection Moda is the premiere event in the region to showcase creative talent and allow creatives to build their brands on the trade-show platform. Kingston is a Mecca of Fashion and Creative People and the Collection Moda is the perfect event to show-off just that"- expressed Ayanna Kirton- Marketing Manager at Yello.

As the night progressed, high energy music and Grey Goose drink mixes set the tone as it was all about mixing and mingling and getting to know the "makers" of 2017 and what they will bring to the MoDA Runway and MoDA Market. This event left us intrigued and left us anticipating the MoDa Runway on November + MoDa Market on November 11-12,2017.

Check out our highlights of the event below, as captured by our talented photographer, Dale Stephenson.
