There are several blog posts I wanted to write and projects I wanted to execute that I didn’t get to do this year. However, when I think about the fashion events I attended and the posts I managed to complete, I feel like I at least got something done.
Barbadian and Caribbean designers showed up and showed off in 2017 and I was fortunate enough to be there some of the time. I had the opportunity to go to Fashion Caribbean in St Vincent and the Grenadines, the Pompasette Brunch Party and pop-up, and the final CARIFESTA XIII fashion show. I saw some amazing local talent at the Dwellings Holiday Pop-up and I attended the launch of Bev’s Bespoke Jewellery.
I was able to highlight a small fraction of the many amazing brands we have in Barbados: Shop by Jahna, Jaye Applewaite, Selfdom 101, Iman Estie, RW Couture Designs, Wilhelmina Heart, J.Riviera and Bev’s Bespoke.
Outside of fashion shows and shopping experiences, I gave you ladies some advice on how to step up your style game and let you in some stores which offer free international shipping. When Barbadian designers got creative with the national colours and broken trident for Independence, I was able to highlight some of them. I also gave you some tips on how to prepare for Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.
Next year I plan to take in more regional fashion shows, share the stories of more fashion creatives and offer you more style advice.
Please feel free to reach out with suggestions for posts and ideas for collaborations as we go into a fabulous, fashionable and fantastic 2018.
