FESTIVE shades of gold and red, as well as perennial favourites black and white, dominated the catwalk during the unveiling of Metrojaya’s Christmas Collection 2008.
The department store’s year-end festive theme – The Magic of Christmas – focuses on transforming an ordinary house into a warm and cosy home, or in the case of fashion an ordinary person into a stunning lady or debonair gentleman.
Metrojaya becomes the stage where magic casts its spell offering glamorous and chic ensembles that are fit for any special occasions.
(There is, of course, a range of Christmas tree decorations, trims and baubles for those looking for something to brighten up their homes for the coming festive celebration).
