The Jamaica Center Business Improvement District rolled out the red carpet at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center on June 1 for “The Jamaica Collections,” the title of its second annual fashion show.

The afternoon featured creations by designers including Onix Noir and the Elegance by Aneesa clothing line.

It was a followup to 2012’s “Come to Fashion. Come to Life” show.

Backing Jamaica’s boast as the largest urban fashion shopping district in the city, the event also featured a sneak peek of upcoming fashion lines soon to be offered at some of the trendier stores along the Jamaica Avenue business corridor.

Models and the public also were treated to demonstrations in makeup by representatives of Vera Moore Cosmetics.

Food was provided by Tom Cookery and Tres Chic Cupcakes.

Additional sponsors included the Jamaica Center BID, New York City’s Office of Small Business Services and the Resorts World Casino.
