THE FASHION SHOW ON 18 AUGUST 2012 AT HATYAI ENTERED THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORD WITH THE MOST NUMBER OF MODELS ON A CATWALK.
There were 336 models who stormed the catwalk in casual fashions including a segment on dakwah or Islamic fashion since there is a sizable Muslim community in Hatyai and southern Thailand.
The show also had a caveat as it was not held indoors but the great outdoors. Right on the road between Lee Gardens Hotel and Centara Hotel and Central Department Store. So if there is a bigger fashion show inside a ballroom or warehouse or indoor stage, Hatyai will still hold the record of having 336 models on an outdoor catwalk!
Very similar to Petronas Twin Towers which was once the world's tallest but has been overtaken by Dubai's Burj Khalifa. However it remains the world's TALLEST TWIN towers!
There is even a third caveat! If there is another pair of taller twin towers Petronas Twin Towers can still claim to be the world's tallest twin towers connected with a skybridge inbetween! So Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad had cleverly covered all the bases when he ordered the construction over fifteen years ago!
The Hatyai show was also the first mega-show to feature modest Islamic fashion akin to Dato Raja Rezza's Islamic Fashion Festival,
