And I think most of the audience of approximately 250 agreed as 's great clothes were shown. Applause greeted every one of the outfits designed by Chester for summer. The collection was beautifully done. The Flower Market certainly scored a coup for fashion and for the 17 children's agencies it benefits. Chester, giving the commentary for his show in the Hotel du Font's Gold Ballroom, said "I love children and that's why I'm here."
