So by now if you’re my Facebook or Instagram friend, you will have seen the photoshoot I worked on with Risanne Martin of Brown Cotton, because we literally social media spammed people with the images for a week or more. (If you haven’t seen the pics yet, they’re coming up in the next post).

What I want to highlight in this post is the behind the scenes amazingness that…

Yesterday was the official beginning of New York Fashion Week S/S 2015. This week’s fashion week roster contains some familiar names that we need to look out for.

I just left New York on Tuesday, but I really wish I could have stayed to see Adrian Foster show his new collection on Sunday 7th September as part of the 9th Fashion Gallery NYFW event at the Helen Mills Event Space in Chelsea. This…

If I hear one more person complain that Trinidad is sooooo boring and there’s so little to do and that ‘everywhere’ you go you always see the same people, I will scream…in their face.

Not that they’re wrong. Living on a small island will always leave you faced with very limited options.

But it could be worse. We could be in St. Kitts. I’m sure there’s much less to do in St. Kitts. (To anyone…

Since I became involved in Caribbean fashion, the words Caribbean Aesthetic has been a term that has been thrown around liberally. Apparently we desperately NEED to define the Caribbean Aesthetic. Designers who experiment in black, white and grey are told that they need more colour, because monochrome isn’t the Caribbean Aesthetic. Apparently, the Caribbean Aesthetic is floaty caftans,…

Every child remembers going to at least one field trip during their primary school career to the Lopinot Historical Complex. Very little stuck out in my head from these trips. I couldn’t remember how far it was (further than expected) or how long it took to get there (longer than expected). I forgot what I did when I got there. Not being the most physically active child (okay, adult, person.…

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESLiving on a small island, it’s so rare that you make a true discovery. Everyone, everywhere has always been there done that, knows more about it than you and yawns when you get excited about it. So it’s truly exciting to go somewhere that people literally haven’t put their hands all over and is truly new.

Hi! Remember me?

How has it been a month since I last posted anything?

Oh… I know. My June was really dominated by trips starting with New York (as the title suggests), followed by short trips to Tobago and Barbados. I ended up really tired and a bit emotionally drained and I’m just starting to recover from that. PLUS, all my pictures from these trips were taken by friends, which meant all…

Last weekend Kyle and I headed down to Waterloo, in Central Trinidad (an area I’m not familiar with at all, so level cuss on the road), in search of the Temple in the Sea, a Hindu temple built over water.

I was really initially inspired to go because of the beautiful photography of the location at nighttime that I had seen on the internet. It’s only when I started researching…

The other day I was speaking to a Jamaican guy and he was telling us how baffled he was at Trini’s definition of ‘far’. According to him, Jamaicans love to drive, and would willingly jump into the car spontaneously for a 4 hour drive, whereas Trinis complain that a 25 minute drive is too ‘far’.

I don’t generally disagree. I spent my formative years in the Port of Spain area, and…

Fresh off the heels of Rihanna’s irritatingly stunning shoot for Vogue Brazil, another island girl, the actually super supermodel, Joan Smalls (she’s from the Dominican Republic) is starring in another international edition Vogue shoot. In the May issue of Vogue Italia, Joan appears in molten metallics effortlessly lolling off on some rocky terrain.

It. Is. Gorgeous.
