Took a couple of pics before I headed to participate in Runway Shift, in which three local designers, Adrian Foster, Lisa See Tai and Megan Charles won the opportunity to sell their pieces in boutique, Simply Runway. Retail is my specific focus in the fashion industry so I was excited to see it being paid more attention to in Trinidad as well. The designers really had to consider the commercial viability of their looks, the price point they would sell them at, and the reproducibility (not a word) of their items, if they won, and in my opinion these are factors that aren't considered enough when designers go from runway to retail. See pictures of all the designers looks, and the fashion show in the event gallery here.
I was also in the show modeling Lisa See Tai's collection. See me below with the designer trying to blend in and look like one of the other gorgeous models she had showcasing her looks. And below see one of my favourite looks that I got to sport on the runway. Lisa's collection blended an easy island-sporty vibe and I immediately gravitated to the raglan-esque sleeves and stripes that made a simple shift dress extremely cool.
