 To set the mood and do justice to the theme, the venue had mirror like reflecting walls that formed the main stage. For the fashion presentation there were island like podiums that were set in three different locations with reflecting surfaces. The models strutted on the podium to a fabulous music mix which also saw a model break into an impromptu jig creating excitement.  The roaring party saw the guests taking selfies against the reflecting walls with #myiconicselfie which appeared live as they posted on special selfie screens that were set up at the venue.
