TRINIBAGO FASHION FUSION

No matter how the wind blows, as a woman, when I step out in style ‘fashionista’ becomes my modus operandi!  From head to feet, being complete as I strut my stuff on the streets, catwalk, my external image have the power to promote a positive foundation for constructive interaction.

Clothing have always been a vital focal point, a necessity in our lives, allowing us to be confident, poised.  Seemingly, we depict a strong sentiment from wearing clothes.  Certainly in my opinion a lot can be garnered because self expression is constantly being crafted by the mixing and matching of clothes, shoes and accessories.

Colours, cuts, swirls, patterns all provide history of cultures, a tapestry of sorts a story is being unleashed before the public’s very own eyes.  Interestingly offering enough excitement, added with a touch of sex appeal, transposes an alluring effect to call you home to a fashion designer’s boutique to possibly purchase their fantastic designs.

In Trinidad & Tobago over the years our top notch fashion designers such as
