SPRING SUMMER 2015 COLLECTION

THE MADRID-BORN COMPANY PRESENTS ITS DESIGN FOR
THE UPCOMING SUMMER SEASON

 

Like a body composed of portions, the shirts arise from the symbiosis of each one of its pieces…”

The process begings each season with a rigorous selection of exclusive textiles from the best manufactures in the world, Italian, Egyptian, English, Spanish. At the headquarters in Madrid, in the cutting section, are patterned and cut over 18 pieces of fabric that, on average and depending  on the model, will make up each garment. Later and honouring the traditional system of marrying textiles, these pieces move on to the sewing atelier to be assembled and sewn, using seams of over 7 stitches per centimetre, in an industrial process that carries over 80 independent operations, most of which are carried out in an artisan manner, by hand, or using at some point the best technology available. Combining craftmanship and technology to achieve higher perfection and homogeneity in the product. Finally, each shirt is inspected, stretched and folded individually by expert ironers. Only the shirts that overcome a meticulous quality exam arrive thus at the final consumer. To enjoy all the manufacturing process, please visit www.madeinmirto.com.

As I stood smack-dab in the middle of fashion, glamour, and the most brilliant minds in The Bahamas; I couldn’t help but feel the overwhelmingly optimistic spirit in the room. This two year old esteemed ceremony aims to uplift Bahamians for their astounding contributions to their various industries within the past two years.  “I feel like there’s a renaissance taking place. It started with the Golden Knights, and I think a lot of Bahamians are in the mood of supporting what’s Bahamian. I’m happy to be a part of all of this.”

- Jullien Believe (Music Bahamian Icon Award Winner)

The affair was hosted by Chigozie Ijeoma and kicked off with a performance of the National Anthem by rising Bahamian singer Angelique Sabrina, who also pointed out that she loved the idea of Bahamians uplifting Bahamians and recognizing their talent. Other performers included Visage, Lyrically Blessed, Wendy Lewis, and the Grand Bahama Youth Chorale. One of the highlights of the night featured Sir Durward Knowles, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award this year for his heartfelt contributions to The Bahamas, one being obtaining the gold medal for sailing in the 1964 Summer Olympics. He kept the crowd entertained with his witty remarks, and pointed out that throughout his entire life his family brought him up to believe in “One Bahamas”, and all Bahamians working together for the betterment of the country.

Another inspiring moment came from Kishan Munroe, winner of the award for Fine Arts this year. When asked what he had to say to young people who have parents that aren’t as enthused as they are about pursuing creative careers; Munroe said, “It’s not a game. You should go into it because you love it and can’t help but to do it. Nobody can stop you. It’s like breathing, you can try to stop, but at the end of the day you have to take that breath. That’s what art is for me. It’s not something you go into because it’s a clear cut path, but because it’s an endeavor you want to create. I would like to implore younger persons to not only look at art as it is today, but also look at where they can take art.”

There were also some deliciously stylish ensembles strutting across the red carpet one being Mr. Addis Huyler, the mastermind behind the entire production. When asked about the inspiration behind his look; he explained, “Last year I wanted to a very clean look; I call it my James Bond look. This year I wanted to step out of the box a little bit and have fun with a little more color, while still keeping the silhouette and classic style.” Tracey Ann Perpall, an Entertainment nominee, also stole the show with her citrine yellow two piece dress by Bahamian designer Theodore Elyett. “I wanted to do something fun that represented my brand and what people know me for – being fearless, fun, energetic, and vibrant.”, she explained before show. Stylist and CEO of “The Cuveitier’s Closet”, Lavonne Alexis, also sported a gorgeous black lace gown by Theodore Elyett entitled “Black Widow”.

Overall, the Bahamian Icon Awards was an inspiring event generously sprinkling positive energy all evening and hopefully throughout the entire nation. Cheers to yet another exceptional award show!
