SIS­TER ACTS

SHE Carribean Magazine - - COVER STORY - By Dee Lundy-Charles Pho­tog­ra­phy by Fiona Comp­ton and Larry Miller Wardrobe by Par­adise Prints, tai­lor­ing by J’Aeylu

In the Caribbean, their name is syn­ony­mous with a Saint Lu­cian dy­nasty, half a cen­tury of re­gional pol­i­tics and the legacy of a man known as the “Fa­ther of the Na­tion.” But de­spite deeply en­trenched fa­mil­ial roots and a shared pas­sion for their history and her­itage, these two sis­ters are forg­ing new and dif­fer­ent paths out­side their is­land home, rais­ing the pro­file of that fa­mous name in dif­fer­ent are­nas al­to­gether. One is the hottest new chef in one of Amer­ica’s most iconic cities, and the other is mak­ing her kalei­do­scopic mark in the Caribbean fash­ion world. As the say­ing goes, you can take the girls out of the is­land, but you can’t take the is­land out of the Comp­tons.
