Barbadian Designers Impress as Sophia Schuppe launches Ghetto Fabulous

Whimsical fascinators from Candifab,  vacation-ready crochet pieces from Satadaze and bold designs from Kasava Designs.  

These set the perfect stage for an exciting 80s-inspired collection called Ghetto Fabulous from Jacqueline Benn-Schuppe on Sunday.

The New York-based Barbadian personal shopper and stylist launched some youthful looks under the Sophia Schuppe brand in a high energy runway presentation.

She said it could be her last collection for a while but I certainly hope not. It was equal parts throwback and fashion forward and I would definitely love to see more.

Supporting designers showed up

Candifab by Candi Nicholls was dainty perfection as usual but I especially enjoyed the use of  bold African prints in some of the pieces.

Wanderlust, Natalie Eastmond’s second collection for Satadaze, demonstrates her growth as a designer.  This collection showed off her her talent and I expect her to continue developing her craft.

Alice Martin really grabbed my attention with Kasava Designs. I enjoyed her use of print, volume and unexpected details.
