Islandistas out for FNO & NY Fashion Week

Islandistas, it’s fashion season again – the spring/summer 2012 collections are being unveiled across the fashion capitals of the world.

In New York City, islandista celebs have been out since Thursday night for the semi-official start to the season, the Vogue-coordinated Fashion’s Night Out. From Kingston to New York City, islandistas came out to see and be seen and give the economy and fashion industry a boost.

And since the shows have started, islandistas have been on the runways as catwalkers, taking turns at the end as designers and in the front rows and at the after parties.

Check out which of our fave islandistas have been out and about.

By Me

island ~ ista
From Latin -ista via Portuguese -ista
one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
