On Saturday night [July 7] the 2012 Evolution Fashion Show, was hosted by the City of Hamilton and featured some 150 models strutting up and down the 80 foot runway, local entertainers, clothes from 23 retailers and hair by four salons.

According to Danilee Trott, Events and Projects Manager for the City of Hamilton, “The City of Hamilton Evolution Fashion Show was a labour of love for everyone involved.

“I want to thank the sponsors, retailers and salons who without hesitation stepped forward to participate, the models who spent tireless hours in rehearsal and last, and by no means the least, my team.

“Co-producer, Lamont Robinson of JaKoMa worked with me on the vision for this year’s extravaganza and the City staff, countless volunteers and supporters stepped forward to ensure every aspect of the production was attended to.

“The team from Wilhelmina, Paul Nelson and Jorge Urena who travelled to Bermuda to scout talent were impressed with the models we had participating. We hope to make an announcement within the next day or so about which models could be selected for possible contracts.

“Of course, our international model, Bermudian Darius Dio was phenomenal. He participated in ten scenes and brought an awareness for the male models who are interested in modelling as a career.”

Ms. Trott concluded, “The entire week was an opportunity to showcase the talent of the salons and body paint artists and it provided retailers with an avenue to share the fashions available in their stores. I am very pleased with our week. We estimate thousands of spectators turned out to watch the show.”
