Island Child Style (ICS) is all grown up!

Well, not exactly, but the premium children's runway show — now in its fourth year — is back with a presentation that's set to be the organiser's biggest and best yet. The team, Executive Director Michelle Gordon, international runway coach Brandon Ferguson, and style director Norma Williams dropped hints at what to expect at the

December 3 show, during the event's official launch at the AC Hotel Kingston on Monday. More than 100 mini models, wearing local and regional designers, are set to hit the runway at the Port Royal Cruise Pier, with the spotlight on designers seven-year-old Logan Watkins, and Lian White, a 14-year-old artist.

Guests got a first look at some of the pieces during a scaled-down runway show at the launch, with a promise of more to come.
