ST. LU­CIAN DE­SIGN­ERS AT CARIBBEAN FASH­ION WEEK

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Two of Saint Lu­cia’s most promis­ing young de­sign­ers will be show­cas­ing their pieces at the up­com­ing Pulse Caribbean Fash­ion Week sched­uled to be held in Ja­maica June 11th-15th, 2015. Hot off their suc­cess from HOT Cou­ture, the two de­sign­ers are ea­ger to show the rest of the re­gion their tal­ents and in­tro­duce them to Saint Lu­cian Fash­ion.

Taribba do Nasci­mento of Meme Bete bags will be show­cas­ing her new Mas­quer­ade Col­lec­tion which is in­spired by our lo­cal Mas­quer­ade cul­ture. The bags mimic the move­ment and vi­brancy of the mas­quer­ade char­ac­ters, mixed with added touches that make Meme Bete bags so spe­cial. Jaeylu De­signs will be out­fit­ting the Meme Bete mod­els with her awein­spir­ing Cre­ole Col­lec­tion, while new to the scene Jew­ellery De­sign­ers Jack and Zayed of Is­land Seeds will be pro­vid­ing the jew­ellery. “This line is very dear to me as it is such a strong col­lab­o­ra­tion of dif­fer­ent peo­ple, which truly rep­re­sents the unity that Meme Bete bags strives to achieve”, says do Nasci­mento.

Fiona Comp­ton of Par­adise Prints will be show­ing her new Iyanola Col­lec­tion that fea­tures the his­tor­i­cal pet­ro­glyphs of the Taino Peo­ple. In­cluded in her Iyanola Col­lec­tion is her new bridal wear.

Both de­sign­ers have been proudly spon­sored by the Min­istry of Tourism, Her­itage and Cre­ative In­dus­tries which has been para­mount to the suc­cess of both de­sign­ers. “We are very grate­ful to the Min­istry of Cre­ative In­dus­tries for giv­ing us the op­por­tu­nity to grow and show­case our brands re­gion­ally. We hope to do Saint Lu­cia proud,” says Comp­ton.

Added to the con­tin­gent are James Ad­jodha and Jesse Evans of Wave­maker Photography. The young pho­tog­ra­phers have been spon­sored by Dig­i­cel St. Lu­cia to ac­com­pany Comp­ton and do Nasci­mento on their jour­ney to Caribbean Fash­ion Week. “We are so ex­cited to be part of this ven­ture,” says Ad­jodha. “It not only gives us the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pand our reach, but it also al­lows us to doc­u­ment and share the ex­pe­ri­ence with Saint Lu­cians through our photography. We can only hope that this will in­spire other young peo­ple to work to­gether to make their dreams come true.”
