‘Style Evolution 2018 – The Second Episode


On June 30, 2018, the Silver Spring Civic Center came alive as the ninth annual Caribbean Style and Culture Awards and Fashion Showcase “STYLE EVOLUTION 2018” was held featuring the dynamic designs of twelve talented designers from various countries in the Caribbean.

The Caribbean Style and Culture Awards and Fashion Showcase, has, over the years, honoured the work of numerous Caribbean artists for their contribution in fashion and this year’s event continued in this tradition by presenting awards to designers and models from Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Jamaica, Grenada and Guadeloupe.

This year was also a special year for the CSC Awards, as, for the first time since the show has been hosted, the organizers introduced the Makeup Artist Award as part of expanding its portfolio. More importantly, the show created history by having Guyana’s First Lady, H.E. Sandra Granger in attendance. The First Lady, who made a special trip to Maryland just to attend the event, presented the Award of Excellence-Fashion Innovation to the two Guyanese recipients, Quinton Pearson and Nadia Thomas Winter. Mrs Granger also commended the show’s organizers for its work to honor Caribbean artists, adding that it is important that their work be recognized as they play an important role in promoting Caribbean culture around the world.

Other recipients included Heather Jones, Tyron Kerr and Kern Marcelle, Naomi Chin-Wing and Gabriella Bernard from Trinidad; Peta Gaye Bellas from Jamaica, Christine Samuel from St Lucia, Kimon Baptiste St Rose from St Vincent and the Grenadines, Eliette Lesuperbe from Guadeloupe and   Tehera Charles from Grenada.
