Gulf Weekly Creative style and diversity

SCHOOLGIRL celebrity Suzi Khan, who boasts more than 50,000 social media followers, was back on the catwalk with top models showing the latest looks for children at a mall store, writes Stan Szecowka.

Centrepoint launched its latest Spring Collection with a fashion show at its City Centre Bahrain outlet.

Around 500 customers were invited along with fashion bloggers and local media writers to last week’s event. The show featured sportswear, casual and formal wear for men and women and there was a special spring collection for youngsters launched by the child models.

The unique element of the evening was a fashion walk by special guests from the Bahrain Down Syndrome Society. Also, the company noted, besides the classy display the Down syndrome members also work at Centrepoint stores in Bahrain on a full-time basis.

One of the highlights of the show was the appearance of Suzan Ahmed – better known by her stage name Suzi Khan – who has been capturing the hearts of a growing army of fans worldwide following movie success and a blossoming modelling career, as recently highlighted in GulfWeekly.

The Bahraini eight-year-old Abdul Rahman Kanoo School student, who stands out from the crowd with her signature long locks, has a growing portfolio of photo-shoots to her name.

This year the collection for all ages appeared more fun and vibrant. The ‘bling’ women’s collection speaks volumes about the newness with a lot of gold and silver sequins play, studs and oversize branding. The men’s wear featured freshness with a collection dedicated to celebrating the authenticity of the brand.

The little fashionistas range focuses on a selection of style options from our favourite magical unicorns, a dash of rainbows, drawings of funky cacti, wild flowers and fruits, to the creatively designed denims.

As the season of blossom, this collection is full of flowers and beautiful pastels all incorporated into modest dresses with bold denim jackets embellished with fun appliques and drawings of the most adorable animals. An assortment of pinks, elegant blues with hues of greens and yellows, sums up the spring trend for little girls this year.

For the boys, the collection focuses on themes of all things outdoor. Nature, wildlife, the sea, with funky animal prints and hints of urban lifestyle influences are on all the styles of this season.

This range brings in fitted colour shirts, jogger pants and block colour T-shirts, giving a flexibly upscale look. The colour palette is a mix of pale as well as deeper blues, greens and a variation of light shades. By bringing all of these elements together, little boys can mix and match colours and prints to create their favourite looks.

This latest Spring Collection can be found at all Centrepoint stores, under the umbrella of Al Rashid Group – a division of Landmark Group, plus online by visiting
