Held in Washington D.C, Karib Nation Inc.,  celebrated their 8th Annual Caribbean Style and Culture Awards & Fashion Showcase on Saturday June 17, 2017.

However, before the official showcase, in honor of National Caribbean Heritage Month, the ambassador and special VIP guests from the diaspora were treated to a pre -showcase of what was to come over the weekend. Showcasing “Made in the Caribbean” fashion pieces from half a dozen fashion designers at the Guyana Embassy in Washington,DC.IMG_3600

But it was not all about the style and fashion. Recording artiste Dr. Chelsea Greene, the White House Dance Troupe and Guyanese Vocalist & Musician Eion Greaves, serenaded guests with their amazing voices and dance routines, respectively. Patrons were undeniably treated to a mouth full that would have ignited flames for them to attend the much anticipated 8th Annual Caribbean Style and Culture Awards & Fashion Showcase.

 

 

 

9 FASHION DESIGNERS

RIP THE RUNWAY = MY FAVORITES

In my 5 plus years walking for Caribbean Designers and viewing their styles via social media, I must say that I was impressed with this year’s fashion showcase.

Jamaica’s Mamayashi Collection. Guyana’s ShaSha and Ryan Berkeley Designs. Trinbago’s Wadada Movement, St Vincent & The Grenadines – Peta Odini Sutherland, Commonwealth of Dominica Arthlene Lawrence, Guyana’s Andrew Harris and Puerto Rico’s Jeilyne Santana and i-Fashion Magazine all phenomenal presentations. But of course I had to choose my top 3.

TOP 3

#3. Trinidad’s Wadada Movement – These twin sisters are ready for their own fashion showcase. They embody confidence that a beauty queen would die for and energies an Olympic athlete would dream of having. And that confidence and energies which they both possess, transcends into every strand of their designs that causes any client or model to feel like a badass when fitted into their clothing. At least that’s how I felt when I strut the runway in their Summer/Spring 2017 “StreetWise” Collection. The well-tailored ready to wear “StreetWise” collection which consists of somber colors and breathable fabrics are undoubtedly one of my top 3 designs showcased at CSC 2017.

#2. Guyana’s ShaSha Designs – Keisha Edwards & ShaSha Designs, this brand has grown tremendously over the last 8 years. Throughout the past years ShaSha has become known for a her well-tailored formal and close cut silhouette pieces.

However, fans were treated to much of a surprise when the 2017 “Synesthesia” collection hit the runway at the CSC 2017 in Maryland. With its flamboyance and artistic hand painted designs, the ready to wear collection caught the eyes of many present.

And though this brand new resort collection was unlike what ShaSha has become known for, one can attest that she did not disappoint her fan base and clients.

If you ask me, I would say, a ShaSha 2017 resort wear is what every woman needs in their closets to have that “Synesthesia” feeling.

#1. St Vincent & The Grenadines, Peta Odini Designs – Four Words. One Location. NEW YORK FASHION WEEK.

That’s definitely where Peta Odini Designs are needed with the likes of Guyana’s Ryan Berkeley Designs.

“All Peta needs is a rapper to showcase one of her pieces in their music video and she’s unstoppable.” I could not have agreed more.

Peta’s cool, calm & collective personality like Wadada’s Movement, transcends into her craft which makes her pieces quite attractive.

Debuted at the CSC Fashion Showcase, the unisex collection which featured an array of pastel colors and prints is unquestionably my absolute fave. Whether you’re feeling for flip flops, sneakers or pumps, a Peta Odini Designs can be accompanied with them all.

 

In closing, all of the designers brought their A-game and proved to many that Caribbean men and women surely has something worth celebrating. Our Style, Culture, Fashion and Creativity is second to none.DSC_9940Ryan S. Berkeley Designs

The Karib Nation committee has done a fine job at selecting a diverse group of talented young creatives from across the Caribbean. As such I do look forward with much anticipation to see what they will bless our fashion taste buds with in the coming year.

BEDROOMS – Sexy & Inviting

Whether you have just moved into your new home or want to give a makeover to your old master bedroom, you need some exclusive ideas to make your bedroom design stand out. Having a spacious bedroom does not necessarily mean that you need to fill it up with an array of furniture. It only needs to combine all the bedroom designing elements together to create an ambiance. The bedroom has to be warm and cozy to ensure a good night’s sleep.

Decorate in Style

If you choose to decorate your bedroom yourself, instead of hiring a professional interior designer, then you need to do prior research. Giving your bedroom a new look is not a tough job provided you have some creative ideas up your sleeve. Traditional or contemporary, oriental or western or simply eclectic — pick your style first. It will also help you proceed in a systematic way while choosing furniture, fabrics and other decorative items for your bedroom.

Color is the Key

Choose colours for your bedroom wisely as colors play a key role in creating the desired mood. If you want to make your large bedroom feel comfy and warm you need brighter shades like orange, lemon yellow or rosy pink.You can think of contrast coloring schemes as well.

Aruba is located in the very heart of the southern Caribbean, a 2 ½ hour flight from Miami and about 15 miles north of Venezuela.

One of the Caribbean’s most popular island destinations, Aruba is at once breathtakingly serene and dramatically rugged at the same time. Sheltered from the Atlantic’s vicious currents and pounding waves, Aruba’s southern and western coasts are famous for their pristine white beaches framed by swaying palm trees. The beaches here are among the world’s best, and there are literally dozens to choose from. They’re surrounded by tranquil turquoise seas which plunge to 100 feet in some areas, and they provide remarkable visibility for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts.

In particular, Hadikurari Beach, located a little south of the lighthouse near the northwestern tip of Aruba, is known for terrific snorkeling. Those looking for exceptionally calm waters will enjoy Palm Beach, located alongside the island’s collection of high-rise hotels and casinos. Eagle Beach is another highly popular beach, especially with locals. It’s a beautiful picnic spot with plenty of shaded areas. Baby Beach is a great choice for families with children or for those who are not strong swimmers. The calm, shallow waters can be easily explored, and stunning coral can be seen in the channel. Most of the island’s best hotels are located on the islands northwestern coast.

An island of approximately 120,000 people, Aruba heavily depends on tourism; 70% of its gross domestic product is created by the thousands of visitors who flock to the island every year. About 730,000 visitors come to Aruba every year, as well as another 550,000 cruise ship passengers, 70% of which are from the United States. Venezuelans make up a large number of the remaining visitors. Aruba is fortunate to have one of the Caribbean region’s highest standards of living, as well as the lowest crime rate.

Visitors and locals alike never have a shortage of things to see and do on Aruba. Those looking for activities after dark are happy to discover that the island is well-known for its exciting nightlife, fine dining and eleven flashy casinos, some of which are open around the clock. Gourmands speak highly of Aruba’s restaurants with cuisines ranging from Indonesian to French to Japanese. Numerous dance-clubs, Vegas-inspired shows and dinner/party cruises provide endless options for energetic night owls.

Welcome! Or in other words, Bonbini! Coming to visit our beautiful island is easy, and we look forward to greeting you.

Entry Requirements:

Travel to Aruba from the USA, Canada, South America, Europe and the Caribbean is possible via most major carriers, either non-stop or with convenient connections. A current passport is required. American, Canadian, and EU citizens do not require visas, nor do most South Americans.
