Fairy Tales and Fashion Converge At La Fantaisie Ball, February 13, 2017

As Glenroy March and House of D’Marsh gears up for New York Fashion Week (NYFW), patrons will be in for a treat as the Jamaican-born New York based designer will present his latest collection La Fantaisie Ball on Monday, February 13 at 6:00 pm at Coco Mat. The show will be preceeded by cocktails at 5:00 pm. The midtown location of Coco Mat serves as the ideal backdrop for this collection, which is noted in its slogan “the fairytale of the perfect sleep and utmost comfort begins here.”

According to designer Glenroy March, the Fall 2017 collection is inspired by the beauty and magic of the fairy tale characters. “The collection is based on the life of this Hawaiian born princess who was raised in Australia and grew up watching all these beautiful Disney characters. Having grown up she decides to go back and revisit all these characters to create an amazing gown to wear to her first ball, La Fantaisie Ball,” notes March.

The dresses in this collection have been inspired by characters from popular fairy tale favorites Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.

“The brand’s new collection is aimed at women who are inspired by the whimsical fantasy of their favorite Disney films, and wish to ensure that the design is not just magical but practical and affordable,” states March.

Caribbean Food Delights (CFD), the leading Caribbean frozen food manufacturer of Jamaican style patties, is back on board as the title sponsor. Other sponsors include Caribbean Shopping Network, Coco Mat, Dream Castle Villa, En Blanc Couture NYC, iLAND Magazine, La’Face Models, Land We, LNJ Media PROductions and Runway Life. Other sponsors include Dirty Celebrity which will provide jewelry while CG & D New York will provide shoes.
