It was smooth sailing for the Swank Shop's spring/summer presentation at Zenses restaurant in Central last month.

The setting and clothes had a nautical, Love Boat theme, with plenty of guests taking onboard the sailor look.

More than 300 packed the venue for a preview of the men's and women's collections from designers such as Andrew Gn, Kenzo, Sonia Rykiel and Givenchy.

Eighteen models strolled down the set, which resembled a cruise liner, as waiters in sailor stripes served drinks and snacks.

Proprietors David Hong Kin-hay and wife Judy Hong Yu Chu-dic accepted congratulations from celebrities and socialites who stayed long after the fashion show, including Kam Kwok-leung, Samantha Chow Sin-gei, actor Carlo Ng Ka-Lok and fiancee Violet Chow Wai-wai.
