    Lovely in lace

     

    Classic and lacey
    For its opening act, Avon Fashions opted for classic styles to give women timeless undergarments they can wear any style season of the year.

    Lovely models in lace paraded next. There was the feminine Vivienne bra with removable lace straps. In skin-tone color, it can be worn as t-shirt or deep-plunge bra.

    The Bridgette bra with luxurious, yellow lace covering the cup and bottom panels, followed. The satinette at the back panel also makes the bra sexier.

    More colorful undergarments took to the runway including the burgundy Lizbeth bra with shiny tricot and lace on cup and side panels, as well as the purple Marsha bra with floral lace and satinette back.

    Last but not the least was the Claudette bra in royal blue microfiber with military-inspired gold lace details. The collection also comes with a satin sleepwear in the same hue with floral lace at the neckline.

    All bra styles were paraded with their matching panties.

First shown were models wearing hipster briefs featuring unique urban prints like the traffic signage and iconic establishment logos. The briefs were perfect match to the two-tone, V-neck muscle shirts.
