Jamaican Fashion News: The 2013 Season has opened!
Normally around this time I’d be uber excited because it meant Caribbean Fashion Week and Style Week were around the corner. But…I haven’t heard anything about StyleWeek from Saints, see nothing on their Facebook page!
Well since writing this post, I asked them when Style Week will be and they responded May 22-26. That’s less than a month away and no promo yet. What’s going on Saints? Waiting with baited breath! Meanwhile, Caribbean fashion Week had their launch over the weekend which teased lines from four designers that will show. Caribbean Fashion Week is the biggest and most coveted fashion event in all the Caribbean with designers from over a dozen countries showing. I look forward to this spectacle every year and you can see past posts on the fabulousness here and here. I’m not sure how much coverage I will be able to provide this year however as I was denied accreditation last year.
Moving on, Miss Universe Jamaica is now managed by Intuit Concepts, the team that brings you Wedding Spectacular and Kingston Bridal Week and their vision for the show is indeed all pomp and pageantry! It is amazing to me that it takes two guys to bring us such fabulous events geared towards a mainly-female audience. They want to do away with having the pageant held at a hotel with a ticket price and bring it instead to Emancipation Park as a free, weekend-long event! I absolutely love Emancipation Park and some events work fabulously there, outdoor movie night? YES! Miss Jamaica Universe in my high fashion dress and stiletto heels? Make it work guys! Make it work! If anyone can pull this off, the Intuit team can and I’m excited for all the details to emerge. The prizes sound amazing, I hope all the ladies are working on their MUJ bodies!
Fun Fact: Ever turn on BET’s Centric early on a Saturday morning and see a program called Splash? Set in the Caribbean? Intuit Concepts produces that show! I really am looking forward to their take on MUJ. Here’s a Splash clip if you’ve never seen the program before. This is a clip from the Jamaican Fashion’s Night Out with Novia McDonald and Vivica Fox.
Finally, I went to the Tami Chynn show over the weekend and she was so cute with her little 6 month belly! I am a huge fan of hers as she has the sweetest personality and she kept her audience laughing between beautiful songs last night sharing song inspirations and a peek into her family life. She well jokify fi tru!
Here she is wearing Lubica for her show. She killed it all night in them wedges, go Tami!
Pictures from her Facebook page. Speaking of pregnant bellies, congrats are in order for Romae Gordon, former Pulse Supermodel and now general manager who was seen toting around a little lovebump of her own! Move over Halle Berry, Romae is our own mature hot mamma!
