Catwalk Training & Show Choreography by Choreographer Vicky Fong

The models were selected , trained and coached by Vicky Fong for the IWC 2010 Gala Dinner and Fashion Show held at Imperial Hall, Crown Square, Kuching. Even though none of them have any previous experience in catwalk, they performed very well during the Fashion Show.
