Courts Do­nates Sewing Ma­chine to Up-and-Com­ing Fash­ion De­signer

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Twenty five year old Quincy Far­rell has al­ways dreamt of fea­tur­ing his de­signs in run­way and fash­ion shows across the globe. As an am­a­teur, the fi­nan­cial con­straints and the pres­sures of build­ing a ca­reer as a de­signer in Saint Lu­cia are less than favourable.

The young de­signer, known for fea­tur­ing his de­signs in lo­cal com­pe­ti­tions is adamant that he will be the next “Top De­signer” for Saint Lu­cia. Apart from hav­ing a pas­sion for fash­ion, Far­rell is also deeply in­volved in pageantry. He also has his heart set on ob­tain­ing the Fran­chise ac­count for Miss Teen Uni­verse and is the cur­rent Founder and Pres­i­dent of the St. Lu­cia Teen Pageantry.

Courts St. Lu­cia is known and ap­pre­ci­ated for its con­stant support of the youth and their de­vel­op­ment, and ini­tia­tives that en­hance skills.

Re­cently, the company held a Fash­ion­ista Com­pe­ti­tion en­cour­ag­ing de­sign­ers to sign up and repli­cate a de­sign based on a piece of fur­ni­ture. Quincy Far­rell was the sole male par­tic­i­pant and cre­ated a de­sign de­pict­ing the company’s Darcy sec­tional; he was the 1st run­ner up.

The company was more than happy, upon re­ceiv­ing a re­quest from Mr Far­rell, to pro­vide the much-needed as­sis­tance. A do­na­tion of a top-of-the-line sewing ma­chine was pre­sented to Mr Far­rell at a press con­fer­ence on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 10th 2014.

The Company’s OECS Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, Ms Brit­ney Jongue, re­it­er­ated the company’s goals and mis­sions as a cor­po­rate cit­i­zen to “Bring­ing Value Home”. She en­cour­aged Mr Far­rell to con­tinue as­pir­ing to achieve his goals and do his best to make St. Lu­cia proud.

Courts un­der­stands that in or­der to change the fu­ture it needs to take the nec­es­sary steps to­day. Its do­na­tions fo­cus on Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment, Youth Em­pow­er­ment, Ed­u­ca­tion, Health and Sports. As a cor­po­rate leader, its goal is to im­prove the qual­ity of life of em­ploy­ees, their fam­i­lies and the com­mu­ni­ties where it op­er­ates, through pro­grams and ini­tia­tives that will as­sist in the over­all de­vel­op­ment of St. Lu­cia.
