With glamour in the air, luxury brands took to the runway for Prestige Fashion's catwalk show at Old Billingsgate in London associated as the fashion part of the London Yacht, Jet and Prestige Car Show. Prestige Fashion is a partnership between Irina Dobbs (UFFR) and Joseph Bachman of Calico.
The show was a great success, emphasising a James Bond theme throughout the three-day event. There were Showrooms for all three days, where buyers, press and consumers could visit the fashion designers. On the second day, Prestige Fashion hosted a fabulous James Bond themed fashion show with 12 designers and 20 glamorous models. The last day ended with a presentation by Irina Dobbs' Fase di Moda collection in collaboration with Jane Taylor, a milliner of the Royal Family and a favourite designer of the Duchess of Cambridge. The presentation continued the James Bond theme at St. Katherine's Dock on the Spirit 54 Yacht "Soufriere" from the James Bond film "Casino Royale". This part of the programme was highlighted by Channel 5 TV show host Eamonn Holmes with a personal interview of Irina Dobbs on the "Soufriere" discussing fashion and luxury brands.
The Prestige Catwalk Show started with graceful ballet performers dancing to James Bond themed music wearing German brand ITEM m6's award winning tights.
The brands who participated span all four continents, which created a truly unique atmosphere with swimwear, lingerie and women's ready-to-wear on the runway.

Their swimwear and matching cover-ups are embellished with Swarovski crystals and 18-karat gold pieces.
