Fashion's Night Out sees launch of stunning new designer collection

Monday October 14, 2013

Manchester based fashion designer Nadine Merabi has launched her debut collection for new fashion brand Ono Uno.

The star studded event took place in boutique bowling alley All Star Lanes, and saw stunning models in smouldering smokey eye make-up and modern beehives, strutting down the bowling alleys, to music by Kasabian, The Gossip and Goldfrapp.

Stars including Made In Chelsea's Jamie Laing, Coronation Street actress Brooke Vincent, Debbie Rush, The Fall actress Karen Hassan and former Commonwealth medal winner Diane Modahl attended the launch.

"I am so happy to have launched Ono Uno in such a unique way. I haven't ever heard of a fashion show in a bowling alley before and like to try and do things a little bit outside the box," said Nadine, who has dressed some of the UK's most beautiful TV actresses such as Michelle Keegan, Catherine Tyldsley, Roxanne Pallett, Brooke Vincent, Georgia May Foote and Michelle Collins.

"My signature style is the 'wow' dress. It is all in the simplicity of the cut and shaping the silhouette of a woman. I like to make my designs timeless and elegant, with middle eastern influences staying strong throughout.

"The theme for the collection is Black Widow , very seductive, sexy and dark. I used deep and rich colours and fabric in jet blacks, deep blues, vivid green and glittering gold, incorporating a mixture of textures and trimmings.

"The pieces are made of leather, mesh, lace, mixed with flutters of feathers, enchanting shimmery and beautiful, heavy embellishment."

The 'Black Widow' collection will be available in Selfridges and Selfridges Online, Ono Uno Website and in select nationwide boutiques from October 28th.
