Caribbean Fashion Designers are taking their brands to the Buckingham Palace. Participating designers and artisans will collectively represent all 52 commonwealth member countries in a major new initiative ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London this April. The ‘looks’ created through the Fashion Exchange will be showcased at a special reception at Buckingham Palace during London Fashion Week in February.
The designers invited to participate are: Drenna Luna of Jamaica, Meiling from Trinidad and Tobago, Iridescent from St Kitts, Neisha La Touche from Grenada, Fashion is Payne from St Vincent and the Grenadines, Designs by Nadia from St Lucia, the Dominica Arts and Crafts Producers Association, Theodore Elyett of The Bahamas, Catherine Rocheford of Barbados, Shasha Designs of Guyana and Launesha Barnes of Antigua and Barbuda.
The project, created and managed by Eco-Age, saw the support of The Commonwealth Fashion Council and The British Fashion Council.
Daniel Hatton, CEO & Founder of The Commonwealth Fashion Council, said: “The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange is the beautiful result of cultures coming together. This project has provided a common sustainable ground which broadens networks and allows for the discovery of new friendships and processes, which enriches creativity.”
