Style Week Jamaica 2K15

by - May 26, 2015

I'm back from an extended and rather eventful weekend! I spent three days submerged in local fashion, sipping on Sangster's Rum Cream and playing dress up for Style Week Jamaica 2015. Saturday night at the National Gallery was the highlight of it all for me, so I just had to share!

I think we can all agree that fashion is perhaps the most explicit revelation of the expression "life imitates art". I imagine that was model agency and event coordinators, Saint International, line of thinking when they chose to utilize the National Gallery as the backdrop for Night 2 of Style Week. 

Art is and will always be my first love so upon learning about the venue I was absolutely excited! When greeted by a fully stocked bar of Sangster's Rum Cream at the entrance of the venue, I knew it would have been a good night  *smirk*. While I am an island girl, I have to admit I'm not a big fan of rum - BUT Sangster's Rum Cream has really redefined my rum experience - especially now, offering three new flavors (Coffee, Rum and Raisin and Coconut). I am a classic kind of girl though so I'll take the original blend any day! 

About the show though - some of Jamaica's most notable designers claimed the runway this year. I always enjoy the creativity behind the more playful and risque looks, but as I mentioned I am a sucker for classics. There is something absolutely refreshing about a designer's ability to redefine chic and give new life to the essence of sophistication. I found a few pieces from Courtney Washington, Max Brown and Kurt Campbell collection did just that.

Overall Night 2 was a success. My only regret for that night was not taking more photos in that gallery!

Outfit Details: The dress code was formal but I decided to go with the more edgy side of formal. I am wearing a NastyGal long vest, fringed skirt from H&M, shoes from and a Liz Claiborne purse. My rhinestone choker was given to me by my mom years ago.

until next time
