Former Miss World representative, Anya Ayoung Chee is excited today- one day prior to her hosting of the event, “Fashion and Mas Rock The City.” The event, set for tomorrow evening at 6 o’clock at the Adam Smith Square on the strip that’s now the unequivocal entertainment hub of Trinidad and Tobago, Ariapita Avenue, will see a fusion of fashion and carnival “in a way that I have always imagined it to be,” said Ayoung-Chee in a social media post this morning.

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.

For yet another year, Trinidad and Tobago menswear designer, Ecliff Elie is the man dominating the carnival scene with his spectacular menswear designs. From Swappi to Teddyson John, Problem Child and Ding Dong, this season, Ecliff’s delivering the wow factor with every stitch and hem.

In the past, the designer has shown his ability to show up and show out on carnival stages, using many soca artistes as models for his creativity. Trinidad and Tobago, his main arena over the past few years, Elie has even penetrated the markets up the islands, laying menswear fashion design claim to territories like Barbados, St. Lucia, Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. From cricketer Darren Sammy to Soca’s Mr. Killa from Grenada and even new sensation, V’Ghn, Elie’s proven that his fit is always a cut above the rest and his touch is magic, something that every client he’s worked with, can attest to.

“What I try to ensure of first and foremost, is the fit. Clothing, whether menswear or female clothing, should always fit well. Once that’s achieved, everything else is window dressing,” he told us. Elie’s styles, when customised for soca artistes like Swappi, SuperBlue and even V’ghn, are often embellished. Much like extravagant costumes worn by international celebrities, Ecliff’s signature pieces, whether jackets alone or complete suits, hold their own on stage, offering the artistes an undeniable opportunity to be seen like no other clothing option would allow.

“I take a lot of pride in how my clients look. Whether it’s a groom, a career professional, a superstar or a casual fetter, at Ecliff Elie we work with the client to match their personality and ambitions, after all, there are some people who, while low key in their professional lives, love to explore fashion options at carnival time,” he said.

Ecliff Elie opened a new menswear store in South Trinidad, at C3 Centre, last year. That store offers on the spot alterations and even boasts Elie’s signature accessories, inclusive of bags, belts, ties and more. “We’re pretty much a one stop shop for quality menswear. We’re a brand that has been built on quality and attention to detail. That will never change,” he assured.

Here’s are just a few of the Ecliff Elie designs that’ve stood out, worn by top billing Caribbean entertainers, over the past year:

There’s really nothing like the sound of reggae to get us Caribbean folk all flustered and ready to peep the scene. Well Bey and her team certainly know us well so like clockwork, Caribbean people are buzzing about the Ivy Park brand, and many of us would’ve likely been in the online shopping craze. The brand officially relaunched on Saturday and features a number of style options, including sweaters, snap track jackets, track pants, jumpsuits, harness bags, hoodies, tees, cargo sweat pants and even skirts.

The line primarily consists of an orange, burgundy and off-white color palate with prices ranging from $25USD to $250USD. Pre-sale items from the new collection, and Beyonce’s first with Adidas after dropping Top Shop and becoming the sole owner, went on sale on Friday and by the end of the day, Ivy Park socks were the only item left.
