ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- UMI showed its support for the fight against Child Abuse when it partnered with the Department of Gender Affairs on November 30, 2012 for an entertaining evening of fashion display in front of its store.

A number of persons were drawn to the event and soon the crowd had swelled to a sizable amount as a number of familiar names took to the runway, including Monea Richardson.

The models featured on the show included those from 17 years ago as well as first timers, which included a couple that seemed just around toddler age

The Fashion Show was entitled the Return of the Mac and seemed to have been quite a crowd pleaser as persons gathered all around with their cameras to get a good shot of the models.

The master of ceremonies constantly spoke about child abuse and urged the crowd to support the fight against it.
