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.

DKNY Fall/Winter 2010 RTW
This season's DKNY collection, previewed Sunday as part of New York Fashion Week at Karan's downtown studio, was a patchwork of grid patterns, Art Deco sequins, equestrian plaids and schoolgirl sweetness.
Some of the best looks were drop-waist minis that emphasized a long, lean shape with boyfriend jackets on top. The cognac-colored leather used for the trim on a short gray wool jacket and wrap skirt as well as a box-pleat mini suggests the DKNY consumer is being introduced into a world of finer things.
