Guadeloupe Fashion Event A Success
Amajor fashion spectacle held in Guadeloupe recently has been hailed by one of the Saint Lucian attendees as not just a success but an eye opener. Kreyol Fashion Days 2015 was held on the French island of Guadeloupe June 1- 6, 2015. During the week, experts and regional and international professionals exchanged ideas and indulged in workshops and conferences to support creative and entrepreneurial initiatives in these domains.
The event was attended by STAR Publishing Managing Director and Publisher of She Caribbean Mae Wayne as well as by photographer Bill Mortley, both from Saint Lucia.
“I was invited to be a speaker at the Guadeloupe Kreyol Fashion Days by the organizers and this event is a fashion industry conference really, more than it is a fashion show,” Wayne says. “Funded by the government of France, basically it is about the fashion industry and the business of fashion,” she adds.
The event drew speakers from France, Trinidad and Brazil - a country, according to Wayne, that is one of the biggest emerging markets right now in fashion. “Among the topics discussed was the growth in the ethnic market and black market and I spoke on black beauty, in particular Caribbean beauty,” the She Caribbean publisher says.
“It was a very interesting conference and I think a lot of the Caribbean people benefitted from the discussions and interactions we had,” Wayne explains. According to her it was a great opportunity
