CLAUDIA PEGUS DESIGNS
The Claudia Pegus touch is indeed golden. This couturier, after receiving numerous decorations for creative excellence over the years, one being Karib Nation’s “Awards of Excellence” is an inspiration to women who need look no further for a definition of success and sheer strength. Claudia is a rear breed of Caribbean designers. Pegus’ clothes are fresh, innovative and decidedly sensual. While not screaming ‘tropical,’ there is a cool Caribbean sensuality that subtly influences the Claudia Pegus line.
The line produces two labels: The Claudia Pegus label carrier featuring the Haute Couture lines, and the CPFS label which produces the ready wear and career apparel lines for retail and wholesale purchases by boutiques, hotels, resorts and corporations.

MONDAY Is The New TUESDAY – TRINIDAD & TOBAGO CARNIVAL
Customized Monday wear is a rapidly growing trend over the past few years. Some masqueraders want to wear a costume of sorts on Monday so tank tops and hot shorts will not do. These masqueraders purchase Monday wear from designers , this can range from simple swimwear to elaborate costuming including wire bras and headpieces. Some Frontliners get Monday wear as a complimentary “gift” from the designer, mostly this happens with private sections .
