Together with the City of Port of Spain, the fashion designer who won Season 9 of the Project Runway fashion competition in the United States in 2011, has been hard at work on tomorrow’s event. She’s been making the media rounds, having stopped off at pretty much every radio and television station in recent days to invite the public at large to the showcase, which she says will be a euphoric moment.

On Anya’s social media page, she told her friends and followers:

Three years ago I saw a dream of mine manifest on the streets of Port of Spain. Fashion rocked the Avenue that night to an audience of thousands of people, fusing fashion and carnival the way I have always imagined it to be. Tomorrow night I have the honour of hosting the same production, this time to formally celebrate the Anniversary of the City of Port of Spain, in collaboration with His Worship the Mayor, Keron Valentine. As a very proud Trinbagonian, and a die hard lover of carnival and fashion, this event expresses every ounce of my vision of the culturally rich and immersive way we celebrate as a people. Come to the Avenue tomorrow night and join us in this euphoric moment!

EBUZZTT.COM will bring you some of the sights from the event tomorrow evening.

What’s hotter than a big butt and slim waist? … some would say rock hard abs and toned legs. This past weekend, on the island of St. Thomas, Soca’s hot bod mom, Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez struck a killer pose, inciting some social media excitement and we were there for it.

Lyons and her hubby were the highlight performers at an event on Saturday night on the island and on Sunday, after the dust had cleared, it was all about a little well deserved R&R. Strutting her stuff in a black bandeau bikini, the mohawk rocking mama was certainly the envy of all who had eyes to see on social media, giving fans and haters alike a little taste of her husband’s delight. Fay Ann’s never one to show too much- at least not since she gave birth to her daughter. She very rarely shows too much skin, always opting for more respectable looks that are flattering to her toned physical structure.

‘Gangsta’ Fashion Trend Gets Some Caribbean Designer Pizazz.

Bunji Garlin was accused of glorifying banditry when he covered his face last year.

Last year, Bunji Garlin’s name was embroiled in a bit of chaos after he wore a bandana (handkerchief) across his face. His outrage on social media after television morning show host, Fazeer Mohammed deemed his face covering “gangster fashion,” sparked an outpouring of public support with many, from all walks of life sharing photos of themselves, donning their bandanas across their faces, in true Garlin fashion. Bunji had brought to the fore, the social issue often faced when it comes to fashion and how certain items of clothing is worn.

Fast forward to 2018 and the bandanna trend has been upgraded, so much so that a business has been created that’ll see varying bandanna patterns accessorised to highlight the trend positively. Peter Q Bannz Richards is a producer, dancer, choreographer, costume designer, television host and the list goes on. He now adds accessory designer to that resume, as he delivers bans by Bannz- ‘blinged’ out bandanas. “The aim is to remove the stigma that bandanas are classified as a downtown/ghetto accessory. Now, we’re wearing our bandanas like crowns, making them classy with a little bit go gangsta infused,” he told EBUZZTT.

The idea for the accessorised bandanna came to Richards in October 2017 and he has since been working arduously behind the scenes, creating various patterns and telling a story through them that would in essence, make people from all walks of life feel comfortable with the popular fashion trend.

Question now is, what’s next? Imagine those Rihanna inspired face masks…? Could it be on the horizon? Oh, what a riot that may cause when conservatives get wind of such a movement.

Rihanna wore this face mask at Coachella 2018.
