Looking at the bigger picture

Following up on last’s week column, fashion careers, this week I wanted to share with you my general response to the commonly asked question, can the Caribbean actually have a thriving fashion industry?

Careers in fashion

When most people in the Caribbean think about fashion as a potential career, the only job titles they tend to associate it with are seamstress, fashion designer or model.

Political style update

Fashion has always offered consumers the ability to open conversation within the parameters of social, economic, cultural and political significance for those who want to truly unravel the semantics of clothes.

Life lessons from Paris

Since I moved to Europe, things have been a bit hectic and sometimes a bit unbalanced because of the nature of my husband’s job.

Fashion roundup

I haven’t been sharing too many details of my latest finds since I moved to Europe, as I am still trying to find a photographer.

A reflection…

When I attended Marian Academy, there was always a day designated during term time for reflection.

Trending now

This week I wanted to share with you a few things that have come under my radar that I found quite interesting and important to the way fashion and the arts are shaped in the Caribbean.

Their hair…

For as long as I could remember, I was always uncomfortable with my frizzy, curly hair.

Sandra Granger’s tastefully sleeveless style

I love Sandra Granger’s style! And I honestly thought that with her rocking all those sleeveless dresses as First Lady, we would have seen a shift in the archaic rules we still have in Guyana when it comes to dress codes in a majority of public offices.

Caribbean designers

It feels so good to not wear a coat. I’m back in Guyana for a bit before I leave for my belated honeymoon.

Christmas wish list

Christmas is almost here. It is the time of year that I believe consumers spend the most willingly, without feeling too guilty about it, or at least I do.

Feeding the fashion greed

Who doesn’t like a sale? I personally fancy a good bargain and getting constantly bombarded by emails on a daily basis to notify me on sales and flash discounts.
