Seemingly on a world tour, Sonia Noel’s First Resort has now made an appearance in Belize, following an invitation from that country’s National Institute of Culture and History.

‘Celebration ‘N Style’, a new event on that country’s September Celebrations, saw Sonia involved in a talk shop in the day with aspiring young Belize fashion designers and a fashion show in the evening in the gardens of the Government House – House of Culture.

According to a press release, the celebration helped to mark the 33rd Independence anniversary of Belize.

Sonia, and Belize designers Dana Brown, Julie McCord, Maureen Navarette, and Babriella Barrera displayed their pieces to a very receptive audience.

Sonia was humbled by the amazing response to her collection, which included purchases and orders.

In addition, her magazine makin style was also introduced to Belize.

Sonia’s next international foray will be at Suriname Fashion Week, next week.
