Shanti International would like to take the opportunity to celebrate the live acts, music and singing that was part of the fashion show.
First up was street dance group ‘a:m’ who performed after Yidia’s collection. This event was the first time that Amir Khan & Maariya Arshad had performed together in front of a live audience so they were a bit nervous back stage. Although this didn’t show as they were fantastic performing seamlessly together and performing sexy solos as well. They incorporated various styles of popping, locking, tutting and waving to create an awesome performance. The audience loved it!
Next up was upcoming pop artist Sertari who got people dancing with her funky set and was a great feature to the night. Her talent was sublime and I have no doubt that she will make it big, especially working with the likes of Kanye West!
Lastly was Salsa diva Zaneta who performed a soul full masterpiece and if she doesn’t make you run straight to a salsa club then I don’t know what will! She had the audience enthralled and we love her passion for dancing.
Throughout the night we had DJ Yann Solo, who worked the decks downstairs in the backstage area and played top tunes all night. One of the attendees Paul said that Yann produced ‘the best soundtrack to an event that he had ever heard’. Yann was a fantastic asset to the fashion show and he provided great music and I look forward to his next set.
