Fashion was the order of the week, last week, with the launch of Trinidad and Tobago designer, Ecliff Elie’s TIMBA men’s resort collection on Tuesday evening at the Normandie Hotel in St. Ann’s Trinidad. The event proved to be a success- one that Elie told EBUZZTT.COM he was certainly humbled by. The runway show kicked off at 7:30pm and with a  massive crowd gathered to catch a first look at the signature designer pieces, all inspired by Cuban culture and music, entertainers Kees Dieffenthaller, Shurwayne Winchester, footballer Kenwyne Jones and comical radio personalities, Ro’dey and Sunny Bling were busy preparing to strut their stuff, backstage. The show would however precede the news of Cuba’s Fidel Castro’s death, on Friday.

The half hour long TIMBA unveiling was seamless to say the least and by the end of the show,  T&T designer, Ecliff Elie who proudly represents for Arima, Trinidad, could bask in the warm congratulatory wishes he would receive. Already, the collection is in high demand by eager male fashion lovers and the women who yearn to deliver the best gifts to their mates this Christmas. Elie told EBUZZTT that gift cards are in the works and will be made available from December 1st. He also disclosed plans to host an in-store Fashion party each Friday from December 2nd- December 23rd, at his Rosalino Street, Woodbrook fashion house, where the public at large would be invited to RSVP to attend and check out the designs first hand.

In the aftermath of the TIMBA unveiling on Tuesday, came word that former Cuban President, Fidel Castro had died at the age of 90 on Friday. The irony of this momentous but certainly mournful occurrence,  stared the designer starkly in the face. He had only days prior greeted the Cuban ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, Guillermo Vazquez Moreno and other members of the Cuban delegation at his collection unveiling. He had been told that that the collection truly epitomized the Cuban culture. “The irony of this happening just after the show is pretty shocking. Cuba is certainly in thought at this time,” said Elie in chatting with EBUZZTT.

In Cuba, a period of nine days of national mourning has begun.
