Video: Celebrating Caribbean Fashion at CARIFESTA XIII
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.
Peep the video here.
As part of my day job, I also had the opportunity to chat with some of the designers about their work. As if it wasn’t already obvious, I love hearing fashion creatives tell their stories.
