A look ahead to the Islandista Summer 2014 issue!

Islandistas, we are SO excited about what we have in store for you in just a few days’ time when the Summer 2014 edition of Islandista Magazine comes out!

For this issue, we teamed up with Barbados’ hottest Crop-Over band Zulu International for a fabulous cover shoot that totally captures the spirit of playing mas the Caribbean way.

We’ve also got an insightful profile on Zulu designer and bandleader, the Trinidad-born Lauren Austin who shares her journey to success as well as her plans for taking the band’s brand regional.

We’ve got a summer trend report where we round up some of the best fashion trends to follow this summer. Make sure to check out our spectacular photo shoot dedicated to the painter prints trend – it truly is a work of art!

And make sure to check out our new contributor, Georgina Callender of Pop Up Barbados who takes us into the historical heart of UNESCO World Heritage site Bridgetown, Barbados.

Islandista’s summer issue will be out in print and online this weekend so in the meantime, take a look at a few behind the scenes images from our Zulu shoot to get you prepped for what’s to come!
