NASSAU, Bahamas -- Cia Monet Fashions, an online shopping company run by Patricia Chatti held the successful Beauties @ Brunch on May 6th at Compass Point. The idyllic setting, beautiful models, and fabulous styles presented by Cia Monet were a hit all round!
The event was well attended and under the patronage of Mrs. Sandra Dean Patterson of the Bahamas Crisis Center, which is celebrating 30 years of service to the Bahamian People. Part proceeds of the event went to support the Center
Local models took the runway wearing designer and accessory couture pieces from Cia Monet which include Herve Leger, Emilio Pucci, Gucci and more. Each fashion season: spring, summer-swimsuits, fall and winter, including casual, resort, career and social wear will be presented. Models were all wearing jewelry by Fusion (Judy Darville & Tepaporn Jin Schmid).
"We feel the suffrage movement is the perfect platform to bring awareness to women's rights in The Bahamas," said Patricia Chatti of Cia Monet. "I am so pleased to be helping the Crisis Center which helps so many Bahamians."Dr Patterson of the Bahamas Crisis Center was quoted in saying that the assistance provided from the event will help to launch the center's upcoming activities.
"To me this is a wonderful opportunity and this is the first time the Crisis Center has partnered with an event such as this one. It's a beautiful environment, a great atmosphere, and I just think this is so different and unusual," said Dr Patterson.
She hopes that Beauties @ Brunch will be the beginning of other partnerships with Bahamian business persons and fashion designers in order to assist the Center.
This is the first in a four part series, which will culminates each fashion season, and launch the latest couture designers, coupled with honouring some of the greatest Bahamian women responsible for women’s rights, equality and other defining struggles of what the Suffrage Movement advocates.
