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.
