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.

Trinidad and Tobago’s becoming a hub for more than just Carnival excitement. Fashion’s a big deal in the islands, believe it or not, and on Tuesday night, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Trinidad, men’s fashion took centre stage as T&T’s foremost menswear designer, Ecliff Elie presented the much anticipated, Prima Volta Italian luxury menswear collection.

Radio personality, Sunny Bling is an avid supporter and endorsee of the Ecliff Elie brand.

Things got off to an unexpected tardy start, due to some hiccups backstage, however, in the end, everyone in attendance got an up close view of a pretty terrific line of suits that’ll likely be the “must haves” for the rest of the year and beyond, by men who take pride in their appearance.

The event was well attended with many of Trinidad and Tobago’s A-list socialites making their presence felt at the collection unveiling. Fellow designer Heather Jones was in attendance, as was photographer extraordinaire, Calvin French. Heating up the runway were a few of Trinidad and Tobago’s big names- among them, entertainers Bunji Garlin and his wife, Fay Ann Lyons, Sekon Sta, radio personalities Sunny Bling and Jason Williams (JW), and sportsman, Jehue Gordon.

Ecliff Elie has been a part of the fashion and design world for some 27 years. He has built his business without the financial backing of any institution, taking pride in his product and successfully pursuing a dream that was built solely on passion. He will unveil a second collection ahead of 2018, in the weeks ahead. The resort collection will deliver to men, a comfortable yet classy line of clothing that he says is perfect for upcoming Carnival events in Trinidad.
