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.
