It’s been a few days in coming but photogs have finally cleared out their discs and we have pictures from Caribbean Fashion Week. Hurr-ay!
The folks at Jamaican party site Socia Lingua have posted the pics from CFW 09 on their Facebook page and despite the bite of the recession, fabulousness was on display as usual.
Take a look at some of our favourite outfits and moments from CFW below.
A lot of the earlier outfits from D&L were in this same vein – structured and black and white and just as we were thinking they were all minimalist, they popped this poufy, fluffy delight on us right near the end.
TOO sweet! It looks like a wearable cake – but in a good way.
The BIDC’s late pulling of funding affected the Barbadian contingent heavily this year but at least two designers – 3rd Revolt and 5th Element, managed to make it up to JA on their own. 3rd Revolt presented a tough, urban and funky look in their collection, which mostly dressed up their 3rd Revolt t-shirts and swimwear in unexpected ways, like the designs above and below.
Poshe from Jamaica also presented an edgy, urban collection, with leather and chain details and sharp cuts offset but luxurious materials like satin.
On a softer note, Shakad, Julan and Kahnami all presented colourful collections that are exactly what we’re feeling this summer – beautiful prints and bold colours.
There are a whole lot more pics to be seen over at Socia Lingua so you can head on over there for hundreds of CFW pics.
