Collections from over 30 up-and-coming and well-established Northern Ireland designers graced the 150 foot stage during the event, staged by Tracey Hall.

"The models have been quite nervous," she told UTV before the show.

"It does feel like you're on a bit of a moving boat when you're walking on it, but it's very secure and we've lots of health and safety and rescue boats at the ready, and one of the models is even a life guard."

During the show, designer swimwear collections were exhibited and Tracey had remained optimistic about the weather.

"It's going to be sunny and 13 degrees!" Tracey hoped.

Milliner and jeweller Grainne Maher said she was "thrilled" to be one of the more experienced designers to be featuring in the first fashion show on the Lagan.

"It's great for the younger designers coming up to be able to rub shoulders with a few other people who are a little bit more established and we can show what Belfast and Northern Ireland really have to offer in the fashion stakes," she added.

And the excitement continued after the fashion show, when designer Henry Holland played a set in joint host club El Divino.
