The newly renovated Moca cafe lounge was the chosen venue for this illustrious fashion night. With it’s relaxed atmosphere and décor wonderful cuisine and inventive cocktails, it was a great spot for this night of fashion. Although the actual show was running a little late doors were still open promptly at 7:00pm which allowed patrons to come in and mingle, have a refreshing beverage and h’orsdoeuvres in a friendly warm inviting environment, for it was a cold night in south Florida. As the room filled up with photographers anticipating the great looks, supporters, consumers, and sponsors the room was full of energy with great musical selection by one of the #1 DJ’s in south Florida Manny Mix which kept the crowd moving to great sounds. While waiting for the show to begin there were neither awkward silence nor a minutes to ponder about lateness for you see you had the chance to visit one of the many vendors that were there showcasing their different talents.
