Thursday night I stopped by Volar to check out an event called Love Gaarden Paradise 2. (Why they spell garden with two a’s is beyond me.) Guests who entered the Roxy / Quiksilver event received paper leis in keeping with the night’s Hawaii-style theme.
I arrived just as the fashion show commenced. The segment took place in the club side of Volar and the space was totally packed. As usual, the swim wear section was a big hit with the girls in the crowd, who for some reason are more raucous than guys are at this type of event. As the male models came out shirtless, there were squeals of excitement!
A narrow runway was somehow carved out in the center of the room. The models would walk down and strike a pose at the end.
The clothes on display were a mixture of Quiksilver, Roxy, and a brand called Primo.
The show lasted about ten minutes and then gave way to an after-party.
Although the event successfully pulled off the theme, an actual, more legendary beach party was set to take place a few days later. After being postponed due to bad weather, the annual Volar / Dragon-i model beach party was scheduled for Saturday. Check back for that post soon!
