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.

Sophie Théallet Fall/Winter 2010 RTW
As the first show since winning the big CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund purse, Théallet's fall collection was a pretty major thing. Too bad the clothes weren't that major themselves.
I understand perfectly well the Théallet aesthetic, but apart from a few pieces, the clothes looked too simple, too uninspired, too uninteresting. Especially for Fall.
