Soca stars and even one of T&T’s most loved footballers will strut their stuff on the runway as Caribbean born designer, Ecliff Elie unveils his TIMBA resort collection at the Hotel Normandie in St. Ann’s this evening. The event has been highly publicised and with a Cuban inspired theme, the collection which has been described as comfortably classy, will likely wow many later tonight.
Kees Dieffenthaller, one of Trinidad and Tobago’s soca heavyweights, has worn Elie’s designs time and time again so it’s anticipated that he will easily strut the runway when the show kicks off at 7pm. Likewise, former Soca Monarch and Road March King, Shurwayne Winchester, who is often given kudos for having a pretty sculpted physique, has been a huge supporter of Ecliff Elie’s designs over the years. In fact, according to Elie, he was privileged to have dressed Shurwayne for the very first Soca Monarch finals performance that he qualified for.
Radio personality Sunny Bling will also be a part of the event and so too will footballer, Kenwyne Jones.“I try to deliver clothing that can be appreciated by everyone. Men should look good, feel good and move comfortably, and their wives or women or girlfriends, should feel good knowing that they’re standing beside a man that looks good,” said Elie in talking about his clothing recently.
