Shift

IMG_6995 IMG_6996 IMG_7001 IMG_7002 IMG_7005 IMG_7010 IMG_7013 IMG_6979 IMG_6993 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.

Went down to the Savannah to take a few pics with those familiar clues that let us know Carnival soon approaches. I think my face shows the requisite combination of longing and "Lawd dis sun hot!" I'm now in Italy but after a beautiful three weeks at home I'm longing for the things I won't be a part of and the people I can't be with. One of the biggest lessons a spoil chile can learn is that you can't. Have. Everything.

Oh. Btw. I loved this outfit so much I wanted to wear it all day including to dinner that night. That is, until my father looked at me and said "Am girl please go an bathe an change your clothes. Ent u want to be in fashion??!" Shame.
