Lights, Camera, Action! Hot Chocolate’s sixties hit "I Believe in Miracles" brightened the room as the show started off with swimwear such as plunging, space-dyed maillots for women, and super-short swim trunks for men in psychedelic citrus shades.
Key Takeaways: The show was full of references to nature, such as water-blue chiffon dresses, floral-print suits and jackets in earthy colors.Domingo also succeeded well in doing what he does best–couture gowns–as well as suits for women and edgy jackets for men.
