LBM DESIGNS DAZZLE THE FASHION WEEKS IN THE GUIANAS!
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.
