The Fashion Watch Quartet re-emerges for its last series with the glamorous and feminine creations of Alex Bitong. Alex showcased a mix of dresses in vibrant colors and classic black using Thai silk, taffeta and Dutch satin. Fancy frocks with fascinating details were what the show was all about.


In the spirit of unrestrained exploration and creativity, Alex came up with Japanese lantern-inspired dresses in black, fuchsia, wine red and sunset orange, which were all conceptually interesting. His creations zeroed in on details in contemporary proportions for the urban and eclectic look. Floral appliqués, feathers and fringes all made it to catwalk in a fantastic sampling of the young Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren.


He sent forth a number of modern variations of the classic LBD. One in chiffon was worthy of note-highly embellished beneath the gauzy, delicate fabric, giving it just the right sparkle.For the finale, Alex summed up with a masterfully constructed long fringed dress, its strings painstakingly attached one by one, according to the designer.


With the hit TV show series Lipstick Jungle in mind, Alex created a collection for the powerful career women like Victory Ford, Nico O'Neilly and Wendy Healy—women who have taste and know what they want.
