Caribbean Designers set to make their Mark during London 2012 Olympics
On Saturday 4th August, a selection of hand picked exceptional Caribbean designers will present their collections as part of the Fashion Engage series of events sponsored by the Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export).
The fashion showcase serves as the opening of Caribbean Export’s Grosvenor presence and its involvement in the African Caribbean
Business Expo in London. Following on from the highly successful Caribbean Collections London Fashion Week debut in February 2012, seven designers have been selected to highlight the region’s flourishing fashion talent.
Showcasing designers include Phelicia Dell of Haiti whose range of handbags were chosen by Diane Von Furstenburg to be sold across her global chain of stores, Trinidadian designer Meiling, who has worked closely on a number of successful projects with Emmy Award-winning costume designer Peter Minshall, Jamaican designer Arlene Martin whose designs have been worn by Jamaican supermodel and American Vogue favourite Jaunel McKenzie, Haitian designer David André, Guyanese designer Sonia Noel, Luxury Suriname Jewelry brand Atelier Doré and Trinidadian jewellery designer Kirie Bain.
The exclusive presentation which will be attended by a select audience of European buyers, stylists, fashion press and celebrities will take place at the Luxurious Grosvenor House Hotel during the 2012 London Olympics.
