Fashion in Jamaica and the region exists, much to my annoyance, almost outside of an international aesthetic. It's my desire, then, to build a bridge between what is innately cultural, and the international industry, all the while highlighting trends and shifts within both spheres.

Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2010
It seems like Galliano has been spending a lot of time at the cinema these days; the references to Tarantino's glorious Inglourious Basterds and Mira Nair's forgotten Amelia were rife- the Eisenhower jackets and bombers, militaristic pencil skirts, and fur-collared coats, all in shades of khaki, olive, and brown, were gorgeous!
