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:

What started off as a concert ended as a FETE! Ebuzztt was most present at Tuesday on the Rocks’ debut on the Savannah grass on Tuesday night. The event, which has grown significantly over the years, drew a massive crowd ranging from the young to the young at heart, all there to celebrate the musical catalog of Kes the Band.

As we begin our review, we note that entering the venue seemed less strenuous than previous years as the design was more accommodating – specifically to parking and layout of food and bar. Before the event officially kicked off, patrons were entertained by the likes of Sheldon Blackman and others on a mini stage while patrons enjoyed their favourite oriental, arabian or creole finger food located near a designated eating area.

Vale Vibe Cooler Dishes Out A Fete, Not A Concert.

For yet another spectacular year, well known DJ, Alicia D Duchess and her team of event coordinators provided patrons with nothing short of a true Carnival fete experience. EBUZZTT was on hand this past Tuesday night to enjoy the epic vibes, as we did last year and even the year before that. In fact, this is one cooler experience we try not to miss because it’s one of the very few authentic carnival treats!

The thing about Vale Vibe Cooler that makes it truly pop out for us is its simple, yet effective feting dynamic. This is an event that makes the most of a venue that’s not the biggest. The event takes place annually at Bayview in Maracas, along the North Coast road. Parking for patrons is roadside and security by police officers along the roadway, is never to be questioned.

Flag wavers, shorts and t shirts and great music makes Vale Vibe Cooler a necessary fete for Ebuzztt.

On the inside, the ambience is beautifully, natural- no unnecessary ad ons- just effective, efficient infrastructure and non stop feting. Patrons attending Vale Vibe Cooler are mostly foreigners who come in for the carnival experience, many of them amped to maximise on their few days in T&T. A nice mixture of mature and young fetters delivers to this fete, a keen, much needed freedom that’s expressed in smiles, airborne hands, voracious singing to every soca track played and not to mention the oldies that are goodies that every international carnival lover basks in. This is never an ordinary fete- this is a fete for true carnival revellers, the ones that are sometimes forgotten.

On Tuesday night, Voice, the prolific three time Soca monarch Champ came through with the music. He impressed thoroughly, even engaging a young patron who’d flown in from Boston. She mounted the stage as the entertainer came on, ready to back back her derriere on him, and that she did.
