TOBAGO mothers were treated to a fashion show, directed by Keyz Studios, at the Caribbean Splendor event at Rovanel's Resort, Store Bay Local Road, Bon Accord, Sunday. The Mother's Day event, organised by Rovanel's Resort and Zanele's Events, featured a luncheon, live entertainment and a fashion show.
Keyz Studios director and stylist Keylon Whitlock said the fashion show featured past and current creations from a number of top designers including Zad and Eastman, Vivre by Chelsea, Loud by Afiya, Odinife (Trinidad), Daniel Clarke, Larissa Dalrymple, Odette Jack, Zhane Daniel and Andrew Smith (Tobago).
Whitlock said with covid19 restrictions almost completely removed, people are becoming more comfortable in social settings and want to look good.
"The feedback we've been getting is good. This is the first event post-pandemic. Folks were delighted to be out and looking for more.
"That response was surprising to me. A lot of folks are asking for contacts for designers. Two people bought creations on the spot. Folks are interested in being out again."
He said it was an exciting challenge putting together the creations.
"It was a mixed crowd, but more mature women, so the challenge was to find stuff to fill that Caribbean Splendor – that colour, flair, exaggeration, trails, shoulder details."
Whitlock said the event was enjoyed by all and he was grateful for the input by his team which included Ameika Louis and Kaylah St Hillaire.
