YARD WORK! MAE AND OYA JOIN FORCES

SHE Carribean Magazine - - FASHION NOTEBOOK -

If you thought pub­lish­ing and fash­ion were Mae Sab­bagh Wayne's only pas­sions, you'd be wrong. SHE's stylish pub­lisher is all about cre­ativ­ity in its many forms, which is piv­otal to her lat­est foray into busi­ness with de­signer friend and re­cent ar­rival in the Caribbean, Oya Soysal. The YARD is the brain­child of Mae and Oya, whose joint com­pany is the in­spired force be­hind this unique re­tail des­ti­na­tion.

Their mis­sion is to gather to­gether the re­gion's ta­lented artists, en­hance and help them on their jour­ney in the cre­ative in­dus­tries and find a new fresh ap­proach to sell­ing their prod­ucts in an el­e­gant shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence for Saint Lu­cia's trav­el­ling guests. The YARD boasts a stylish, high end bou­tique, show­cas­ing a hand-picked se­lec­tion of the Caribbean's best home-grown prod­ucts; ex­clu­sive cloth­ing brands by the re­gion's most ex­cit­ing de­sign­ers; beau­ti­ful hand-crafted jew­ellery and ac­ces­sories, unique de­signer T-shirts and funky fash­ion bags, scarves, prints, pic­tures and ar­ti­sanal gifts for the fash­ion for­ward loved one in your life.

But that's not all. The YARD will be home to a spe­cial­ist book store where re­gional au­thors will be high­lighted, and an artist's café in which to re­lax and en­joy a de­li­cious Turk­ish cof­fee. The Yard will also be the venue for spe­cial events to pro­mote the wares of their care­fully se­lected cre­ators, and is ex­pected to be the de rigeur stop in Saint Lu­cia for artists and ar­ti­sans with flair for fash­ion.
