Thank you to everyone who attended this year's event. It was a huge success thanks to the incredibly talented artists.

A big thanks also to the models and volunteers who gave their time to make the show fabulous.

And of course it wouldn't have been such a great event without the creative direction of Cat Pennenga.

iconcept will be back next year in a bigger venue. Stay connected for updates here on the website and be sure to "like" the event on Facebook. Iconcept Fashion Show
