“If yuh ready fi di summa let’s go
Shout it out and let mi know”
– With all due credit to Beenie Man, of course.
Being ready for summer means knowing what you’re going to wear for carnival events, parties, cruises and lazy days lounging by the pool or beach.
Once again this year, the Pompasette Brunch Party served up endless options from Barbadian and Caribbean designers. The fashion lovers who gathered at the Barbados Museum and Historical Society recently had more than their fill of swimsuits, casual wear and resort styles.
My extensive recap is set to come in Easy Magazine so this post is really all about giving you some options to choose from as you go about your summer prep.
The Caribbean Festival of Arts (CARIFESTA) came to Barbados for the first time since 1981 and if there was one thing I had to check out, it was the fashion.
The Grand Market had amazing selections from across the region and I managed to take in the final fashion show. It featured Fifth Element, J’aime Crochet and Cicely Harewood of Barbados alongside Haiti’s Daphne Floreal, Jamaica’s Courtney Washington and Olympia’s Fashions of Guyana.
