Published

Cuba is at the centre of the energy at the design house of Ecliff Elie these days. The Trinidad and Tobago native who’s been a part of the fashion industry for over 20 years, says his new collection, which hits the market immediately upon unveiling on Tuesday, November 22nd, feeds off the energy and vibe of the similarities found in both Cuba and Trinidad and Tobago’s  cultures. The collection will be shown at the Normandie Hotel in St. Ann’s, Trinidad next Tuesday at 7pm.

A number of entertainers in the Caribbean have been outfitted by Elie- among them, Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin and Kees Dieffenthaller. The Arima fashion designer says his clothing affords those wearing it to be comfortably, but impeccably dressed. It’s something most people want, really! The collection is dubbed, TIMBA and is the Cuban word for a fusion of African and Cuban beats and rhythms- a new age Cuban sound that epitomises an unmistakeable Caribbean flair.

Caribbean people are generally fashionable- never missing a beat when it comes to the runway looks, often time making it their own by adding a touch of Caribbean spice to the mix, whether it be with bold accentuations like earrings and other female accessories, or for men, a watch that’s more than just a time piece. Ecliff Elie says he believes in a person looking and feeling their best. He also understands the role fashion plays in bringing that to reality. On November 22nd he says he plans on demonstrating how even casual clothing can be made to fit impeccably well. The TIMBA collection will showcase a variety of comfortable looks, all boosted by contemporary colours and accents. The fabric of choice for the collection is cotton- the fabric of life they say, and according to Elie and his team, men who value quality clothing that’s suited to island life, can certainly look forward to TIMBA- a refreshing burst of caribbean energy, brought to life through fashion.

Barbados’ Rihanna Does 30 Right! Makes Huge Business Move Like Only She Would!

Published

on

Rihanna’s 30th birthday celebration included a big business move that could see the Barbados born Beaty rack up that dough, even while partying like the rockstar she is. Yesterday, even while celebrating the commencement of her “dirty thirties”, the Fenty brand creator released a new limited edition Fenty Beauty product- the Trophy Wife Highlighter. The super pigmented, metallic gold cream-to-powder was an instant hit when the brand debuted back in September 2017, according to Elle.com.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife highlighter is available in a limited edition online.

The “Work” singer was certainly celebrated yesterday. A number of top tier celebs offered birthday shouts to Rih, among them ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown and DJ Khaled. Rihanna was pretty modest in her approach to the big 30th celebration however, posting via Instagram, an incredible “thank you” to her mother for her role in her life.

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter!” the singer wrote. “Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom!”

She also made sure to show her appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices that go into being a mom, writing, “Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!”

“I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you!” 

RIHANNA

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt: Dirty Thirty highlighter ($34) now comes in a gold box that reads “Dirty Thirty” and the product pan is engraved with “XXX.” Currently, it’s only available on Fenty Beauty’s website.
