Fashion show dazzles


New, unusual, fresh and extraordinary: that’s how you can describe the clothing from Thursday night’s show.

Novus Racks Mobile Boutique held its Inaugural trunk show releasing its men’s collection “Imperial Man” in collaboration with local designer Morella Frederick.

This was a fashion show with networking opportunities.

It was held outside on the deck at Café Taverna on North Monroe Street.

The collection was filled with numerous hand-made one-of-a-kind pieces. There were animal prints, cultural and even floral prints. All types of clothing was on display: blazers, vests, pants, bowties, dresses and more.

Frederick said her inspiration for this collection was to bring affordable one-of-a-kind couture pieces for men and she is pleased to collaborate with the owners of the boutique to release these items.

“Now men can be the ladies’ arm candy during a night out on the town, date night or a formal event,” said Frederick.

The show was impeccable. The male models engaged their audience while working the runway. Some female audience members were gifted a red rose by the male models.

There was only one female model to capture the essences of a Novus Couple.”

Co-owner Chelsea Collins said, “We wanted to showcase our new items in a fun way so we decided to host a trunk show.”

Novus has plans release a new collection every season and host an event along with it.

“We were excited about tonight’s event. Any time we are able to get our brand in front of people we’re always excited about that,” said Collins.

“We are already talking about doing a much larger trunk show in the fall.”

Guests were in awe of all the pieces the models sported down the runway. Some even purchased some of them right after the show.

Olivia Bradley, a guest at the event, said, “I liked all the pieces tonight. My favorite was the black tux with the roses on it. I was like ‘Oohh.’ I would like to see my boyfriend in something like that.”

There will be plenty more opportunities to get your hands on items from the “Imperial Man” collection.
