Solar lights shine on fashion

 

 

Gracing the stage was emerging designer, Christel Tomwing, accompanying her model, Tracee Tang Yew, dressed in her oriental inspired piece made out of black garbage bag and her matching clutch purse created from a cereal box.

A campaign to promote the benefit of Lunar Solar Technology took on an exciting twist with a fashion presentation designed around the concept of renewable energy. Emerging local fashion designers from University of T&T (UTT) were commissioned to design pieces made from renewable/recycled material. The local designers definitely lived up to the nights’ theme, Let Your Light Shine. The different pieces presented were creatively designed and were described by some of the patrons as out of the box creations. As the models began to showcase the different pieces, they were all greeted with a resounding applause, as the designers surprised the audience with their level of creativity and innovation.

Almost looking like normal fabric, Tracee Tang Yew graced the runway in an oriental inspired piece called, Awdawn, which was made out of black plastic bag, while her elegant matching clutch purse was created from a cereal box. Another highlight of the evening was a tube mini dress made from bottle caps and spray painted black with a hint of gold, which gave a shimmering effect. Some of the other designs were created by Ricky Bhowram. These designers were a part of a pre-marketing Solar Street Lighting launch hosted by Richard Sabga, co-owner of Lunar Solar Technology, in collaboration with its regional distributors, Curtis Noel, CEO of Mineral of the Earth (MOTE) and Damien Carter, CEO of Diversified Project Planning Solutions (DPPS).

The launch was held on Saturday night at Paprika restaurant, Westmooorings. The organisers of the event could not have asked for a more perfect setting, with the full moon beaming down and complimenting the colourful solar powered lighting. It created the right ambience for patrons, who had a great time partying, while helping save the environment. The official launch of the Solar Street Lighting project, Sabga said, would be held in about two weeks in a more formal capacity, where live demonstrations of the lighting would be staged.
