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.

Why Marie Collette Has Everyone Saying, “Take Meh Money”.

Published

on

The vibe of carnival lies in the belly of the masquerader.

There are masqueraders who live for the ‘wine’ and then they’re those who are the embodiment of freedom, wild abandon, bliss and happiness. These are the masqueraders who show the world why being a part of Carnival isn’t an option, it is a requirement. Trinidad and Tobago swimwear and costume designer, Marie Collette has done just that.

In what can only be described as her selfless expression of love for the music and mas, Collette, in her fifth presentation of mas design for YUMA, delivered a jaw dropping stage show of her “ULTRA” costume design for YUMA in 2019. She delivered a seamless portrayal of what every masquerader should essentially strive to be on the road come Carnival Monday and Tuesday, edifying through movement, the masses who’d been looking on, on Sunday night. This was no ‘posey posey’ portrayal- this was a glimpse of the future, a glimpse into Carnival 2019.

Collette has been designing swimwear for a bit. Her passion has transcended into costume design.

Collette has been designing and claiming her space in the Caribbean design landscape for some time. Her killer bathing suits which are sold online at www.mariecollette.com have been enhanced, to say the least, transforming her ‘job’ into a passionate alignment with the ‘Monday wear’ trend that effectively catapulted her to where she is at now.

YUMA will deliver ‘Jukebox’ in 2019, a theme that will include sections like Fever, Wild Thoughts, It’s Carnival, Lemonade, Mi Gente and of course, ULTRA by Marie Collette.
