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. Overall, Joseph Domingo’s show was one of the top highlights of SFIFW.
