Islandistas Anya Ayoung-Chee and Nicki Minaj both made their mark on New York Fashion Week in very different ways this weekend.

Anya was one of the nine Project Runway finalists to send a small collection down the catwalk on Friday at Lincoln Centre. The collection, which Anya said was inspired by the “easy, sexy vibe of the Caribbean” (yay! how islandista!)  featured lots of colour, movement and cinched waists.

The Associated Press reported that her collection seemed to be a crowd favourite too – go Anya!

Check out a few of our favourite looks from her under the cut.

Meanwhile, rapper Nicki Minaj made her fashion statement in the front row at the Prabal Gurung show. In true Nicki style, she went all out with an over-the-top, quirky, girly look that was reminiscent of the fun and fantasy of being a little girl playing dress up. A tutu, a pink pretzel necklace – it was quintessential Nicki.

Contrast much? Nicki alongside model Elettra Wiedemann at the show.

Some folks are hating it but you know what? As a TriniNicki comes from a tradition of mas – of not just creating a spectacle but being the spectacle. I think that for Nicki, every day is Carnival day.

And I for one, eh vex wid she.

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.
