Lyn Bris­tol of LBM De­signs, Saint Lu­cia, has re­turned from the Guianas where she show­cased her re­sort wear line, both in “Guyane Fash­ion Week” and “Suri­name Fash­ion Week” 2014.

She first went to Cayenne (French Guiana) at­tend­ing the ‘Guyane Fash­ion Week 2014’. This bud­ding de­signer was spe­cially in­vited by pro­ducer Jean René Pologne with all ex­penses paid.

While in Cayenne, Lyn par­tic­i­pated in all three fash­ion nights held in var­i­ous venues and was well re­ceived on each of the nights. She had the plea­sur­able ex­pe­ri­ence to net­work with fel­low de­sign­ers from Mar­tinique, Paris and French African coun­tries, also mod­els and pho­tog­ra­phers of Cayenne. Her de­signs were also used in a fash­ion shoot which was staged around the city of Cayenne.

After this im­pres­sive stint in French Guiana, it was off to Para­maribo, Suri­name (Dutch Guiana) for ‘Suri­name Fash­ion Week’ where the fash­ion shows were held for three nights at the Wyn­d­ham Ho­tel and one night at the Ra­mada Rooftop Inn.

Suri­name fea­tured de­sign­ers of cloth­ing, jew­el­ery and ac­ces­sories not only from Suri­name, but also from Cayenne, South Africa, Hol­land and Mar­tinique with LBM De­signs be­ing the only one from Saint Lu­cia.

As was with Cayenne, Lyn net­worked with Suri­namese and in­ter­na­tional fash­ion de­sign­ers, pho­tog­ra­phers and mod­els. From this ex­pe­ri­ence, two de­sign­ers have com­mis­sioned Lyn to hand paint their fab­rics for their col­lec­tions; she has been in­vited back to Suri­name and Cayenne next year to at­tend their fash­ion weeks.

Both mod­els and de­sign­ers alike have ex­pressed an in­ter­est to visit Saint Lu­cia to ex­plore the fash­ion scene after in­ter­act­ing with Lyn Bris­tol of LBM De­signs who was an am­bas­sador for her coun­try.
