Our Song of Free­dom

Mae Wayne Raoul Cas­tro shak­ing hands and warm­ing up to each other af­ter fifty years in the cold.

I am es­pe­cially hum­bled, and al­to­gether ec­static, as I an­nounce that Cuban de­sign­ers and per­form­ers will be mak­ing their de­but on the Hot Cou­ture Run­way.

Although Cuba and Saint Lu­cia have shared a great re­la­tion­ship for sev­eral years, few here have ex­pe­ri­enced the unique tal­ents of our Cuban broth­ers and sis­ters.

This year’s Hot Cou­ture will show­case this amaz­ing cul­ture, its art, its her­itage, its beauty, its fash­ion. All of it sym­bol­ized by a Spe­cial Artis­tic Per­for­mance of Arte Y Moda (Art In Fash­ion).

I want now to thank the Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board for its con­tin­u­ing con­fi­dence in Team Hot Cou­ture. Of course, Hot Cou­ture would not be pos­si­ble with­out my part­ner Adrian Augier of Land­mark Events; Denise Lay, Richard Young, Christa Cooper, Emile Wil­liams of Phase One, Sasha Cos­met­ics, Bay Walk Mall, Berthia Parle of Bay Gar­dens and of course my friends and long­time spon­sors, Sea Is­land Cot­ton Shop. To para­phrase the great Bob Mar­ley: Come one and all and join us as we sing this song of free­dom that is this year’s Hot Cou­ture!

Hot Cou­ture pro­ducer Mae Wayne: Bor­row­ing from Bob Mar­ley, she says this year’s pro­duc­tion

rep­re­sents “our song of free­dom!”
