Nigel Ramsay showcased Before Midnight, a collective of his past work, at Vlora Bar and Restaurant to kick off the first day of Boston Fashion Week. The Jamaican designer described the collection as "simple with free flowing lines," pieces of his that Boston hadn't seen before. He was impressed by the response from bloggers, models, and stylists who inquired about his show. Most tables and bar seats were full by the time the fashion show began last Sunday and every model received excited applause as they walked. After the show, Ramsay was greeted by many proud and familiar faces, congratulating him on an elegant presentation.
The looks spanned from casual, form-fitting dresses, streamlined suit separates, intricate and sexy evening gowns, laid-back menswear, and (my personal favorite) voluminous striped and plaid skirts in vibrant, primary colors. The final look was a deep red and burgundy gown with a simple silhouette, however it carried an intriguing element. A versatile train was tied corset-style to the back of the skirt, then doubled as a cape for the show's finale.

I will not give a designer a good review to be in their favor, nor will I abstain from giving a designer a bad review to avoid their disapproval.
