The Nippon Designer Club (NDC) of Okinawa recently held their '98 Collection des Modes Fashion Show at the Harbor View Hotel in Naha. Designers showcased their spring and summer collections. The designers club has a total of 19 members 11 of which are lifetime members the other eight are new participants. NDC is a highly recognized designer club boasting the elite designers of both Okinawa and mainland Japan.

This year marks the 25th Anniversary for NDC. The planning stages of the show started two months ago although most shows take as much as six months to plan. "Acquiring sponsors, auditioning models, in addition to designing clothing can be a hectic venture," says Sachico Nakasone, one of NDC's top designers and show coordinators.

Each year the club produces three shows to showcase their couture collections. The fashion shows are normally held in the Ryuku Shimpo Hall. This year in honor of the 25th Anniversary the Spring & Summer show was held at the Harbor View Hotel. The Fall & Winter fashion show will be held in November.

Designers from as far as mainland Japan came to unveil their collection to the public. The emphasis this year seem to be on long flowing garments. Length trends were definitely at or below the knee, putting the focus on the design rather than the cut of the garment. An array of colors were ever present making the collection of designs fresh and feminine. Most of the evening and after six designs were soft and flowing making the various collections mystical and alluring. Truly high fashion couture at its best.
