Staged in Santo Domingo, the 12thedition of the red carpet event, which sees celebrities from various parts of the world, in attendance, welcomed Elie and his Dreevait Resort collection. Both Caribbean Export and Dominicana Moda had extended the invitation to the Trinidad and Tobago designer. He accepted and would subsequently showcase the collection at an event dubbed, “Caribbean Runway” on Wednesday, October 24th. “It was truly a success. The collection was well received,” said Elie

Dominicana Moda is considered one of the most important fashion events in the Caribbean with growing importance internationally. For Ecliff, the experience was certainly a welcomed one, and graciously, he accepted and executed, delivering the Dreevait collection, which was revealed a few months ago in Tobago. The collection boasts bold colours and according to the designer himself, it suits men who have no restrictions, and reflects those who are confident and ready for any occasion.

The opportunity to showcase his work on a main stage at this very prominent Caribbean fashion event was worthwhile. “There’s really no better place for this collection to have been showcased. The DR is an ultimate resort destination in the Caribbean region, coupled with an appreciation for the Caribbean aesthetic, which is ultimately delivered in this collection,” he said. Elie also explained that the opportunity was seen as a very good business move. “It was good for Trinidad and Tobago as well. It allowed our country to be seen and highlighted among the best in Caribbean fashion and that’s promotion we certainly cannot pay for,” he said.

Ecliff Elie received tremendous kudos for his showing at the fashion event on October 24th.

A number of businesses in the Dominican Republic had expressed a desire to carry Elie’s clothing brand there, so essentially, the move to showcase the designs to such a wide audience, was a smart one.

Ecliff Elie’s name has been receiving widespread attention in recent time. He is credited with outfitting reggae sensation, Jah Cure for a concert event hosted in Trinidad earlier this year. The reggae artiste was certainly satisfied with his look, telling the crowd that a “Trini designer” had dressed him. Subsequent to that, Ecliff Elie designed a number of suits for Trinidad and Tobago singer, Olatunji Yearwood who appeared on the X Factor, making it through to the Live rounds, before making his exit this month.

Prev1 of 3

Social media was abuzz with photos leading up to the October 20th nuptials of Soca DJ, International DJ Stephen and his wife, Zinaida McNamara. The two were engaged in a pretty public setting aboard the Uber Soca Cruise last year. This past weekend, soca stars from around the Caribbean glammed up and made their grand entries at The Biltmore in Coral Gables, Miami, to celebrate the coming together as one, of a couple who’ve staked their individual claims to the entertainment limelight, and unitedly, have now staked their claim to each other.

The wedding was certainly a beautiful one with planning done by Luxurious destination wedding and event planner, Marylen Exposito. The bride’s Viviane Valerius plunging neckline gown flattered her structure in the most elegant way and when it came to Stephen himself, the fashion boss of his homeland, T&T, was called upon for that professional hook up. Stephen wore a custom tailored, Ecliff Elie suit, a choice that certainly proved the right one when the curtains were drawn.

Ecliff Elie has been the talk of the town on the Caribbean’s menswear fashion circuit for some time. Most recently, he dressed Jamaican reggae chart topper, Jah Cure for a concert appearance in Trinidad and Tobago. Beside the bride and groom, a number of Soca stars proved to be show stoppers on the wedding red carpet. Nadia Batson looked radiant in a near gold colored, lace embellished, floor length dress, while reigning Soca monarch King of Trinidad and Tobago, Aaron ‘Voice’ St. Louie, sported a suit that he hash-tagged, “Shakespeare” on social media. Like St. Vincent’s Skinny Fabulous, St. Lucia’s Teddyson John, T&T’s Lyrikal, Mr. Killa of Grenada and Antigua’s Ricardo Drue, the men of Soca rocked out hard and charming in black and white, taking their place in a wedding that has since been referred to as The Soca Met Gala.

Now, check out some of the hot looks by our Caribbean celebs and of course, you’ve gotta see what those said artistes caused when it came to rocking out on the dance floor…
