The penultimate collection was that of the Love Collection a collection of the night but nothing less was expected from designer Indashio. The last collection was the aptly named Salute to the Flag by Donna Rose which featured Jamaican coloured animal print maxi dresses beautiful prints a tiered ball gown and a coat. An impromptu on stage dance party by the models and their designers ended the show with a bang. The night was indeed a success and it was a great precursor to what will be at the upcoming Caribbean Fashion Week and if these designs are anything to go by that will be a great success as well.||PJM|| Andre Shirley Balla Shawn

Coupled with textured detailing on the ivory dresses the House of LAMAICA by Marvalyn Nelson is one for future feature as it was one of the better collections with strengths in the detailing in the dresses, lace skirts and mens jacket. Mariskas Design by Sonia Noel was haute couture, with concept throughout the presentation. This African-inspired collection was accentuated with stunningly beautiful head wraps and dresses that made even the shortest of models look head wear and bags and Mariskas Design was a true vision of a modern womanstylish and sexy.

As one of the Emerging Designers of 2012 Nominees, the collection was most deserving of the recognition. did not wow as in years past but it is Meiling and as doyenne of Trinidad & Tobagos fashion her score is 10/10. It was evident from collections of other designers how far reaching inspiration and leadership is to be honoured. What is loved most about Meiling collections is the beauty of the West Indian Sea Island Cotton from dresses, shorts, shirts, jackets every piece offers that in every look. Suzilee Chambers presented her glamorous Lee Anns Designs collection. Followed by Crown Atelier by Tiger Lilly Hill who winner of the Emerging Designer of the Year award. Dionne Richards was next on stage with Bondij Blondi -a sexy collection that was fun and fresh. Saleem by Saleem Samuels offered menswear and womenswear in the collection. However the mens line really stood out from the collection and included a Russian red suit that was blazing hot. Jae Jolly by Janel Jolly was a beautiful and sophisticated collection with a strong sex appeal. She is certainly one designer to watch as she continues to mature. Another favourite designer of the evening was Jackie Cohen and her Mutamba collection. Mutamba is a celebration of the Caribbean woman with a strong knowing of who she is. The looks had lovely detailing in the back and accentuated with strong accessory pieces including black hats and big bold belts. The looks projected an easy vibration with beautiful draping throughout the black collection. The collection was empowering, years collection from Mutamba is a must have.

From the reggae inspired Marley headsets to the trendy sportswear collection in partnership with PUMA for our golden athletes at the London Olympicsit was a true celebration of Jamaica 50 and its no surprise the line was voted as one of the best at the Olympics by TIME magazine. Kudos Cedella, look forward to having you back at CFW again. by Milliance from Haiti, the collection certainly has potential and we look forward to seeing it grow. the collection favourites included the bold colour bloc dress and overall this designer has strong potential for continued success in the industry.

This was followed by the BANG collection by Nell Robinson and Ann Marie Clarkethe collection was young, hot and a good debut at CFW. Beautiful jewellery was showcased in the Atelier Dore collection. Shenna Carbys collection followed thereafter and was a carnival of creativity in its range of looks and there is a strong potential for any future bridal line given the gowns that strutted down the runway. Now on to The Cloth by Robert Young. What can or cannot be said about Robertno matter what, he never disappoints. The collection was perfect 10/10crisp white shirt and pants suits for men and dresses for woman coupled with beautiful Of course all the models were in a state of kumina so the presentation was high on energy with a touch of voodoo and obeah in the mix.

|Panache Jamaica |www.panachejamagazine.com ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 2012 54 Bask ing ...in bikinis TIPS FOR A NEARLY PAINLESS BIKINI WAX Plan to wax after your period. Your pain threshold is higher in the week after your period than beforehand. Think of it like this: if sappy commercials make you cry when youre premenstrual, having wax applied to your dainty bits certainly will. Lose your self-consciousness. Y es, a stranger is going to see you wearing, at most, a paper thong. Dont worry about oending her or feeling embarrassed. Its nothing she hasnt seen before. The less anxious you are, the less youll worry about pain. Start o slowly. Your rst bikini wax is not the time to try a Brazilian. If youre new to waxing, go with a basic bikini wax. If you want to remove more, theres always next time. Exfoliate. The day before you decide to wax, exfoliate in the shower. This will remove dead skin, allowing the wax to grip shorter hairs. Speak up. A good esthetician will work with you to make sure youre as comfortable as you can be. Dont be too shy to say something if you have a low pain tolerance its better to speak up than to suer in silence. Use hard wax. Hard wax is gentler than soft wax, so visit a spa that uses it. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever. About an hour before your appointment, take an Advil, Tylenol, or other pain reliever. Breathe. It can be tempting to hold your breath, but breathing in and out helps reduce the pain. Take a deep breath in when the wax goes on, then breathe out when your esthetician gives it a yank. Know which parts are most sensitive. You wouldnt expect it, but having hair pulled from the lower abdomen area is more painful than it is around the vaginal opening. Turn your head and cough. An esthetician at Bliss taught us this trick: when the wax is about to be ripped o, cough. Sounds weird, but it distracts from the pain. ||PJM||Tips courtesry : http://www.bellasugar.com/How-Make-Bikini-Wax-Hurt-Less-678438 By Tricia Williamson Photography by Roger Jones MUSHROOM MARLEY SYIIM Photo Editing By Tricia Williamson Lee Ann Designs Lee Ann Designs Wild Free MARLEY MARLEY

www.panachejamagazine.com| panache jamaica| ANNIVERSARY ISSUE 2012 55 Designers: CFW 2012 ReviewWe were inspired by Jamaicas 50th Anniversary, hence the name of the capsule collection is Destination Jamaica 50th, paying homage to our Independence and highlighting comfortable cotton and linen creations for daytime to evening, even weddings. It was a fun enlightening experience [at CFW] and one from which we have garnered the experience of the fashion runway. In the next 5 years, we would love to see more international buyers coming to the showcase thus increasing the exposure internationally for both the designers and the region. Sonia TomlinsonThe collection is called Exhibela which means to exhibit her and is inspired by the rhythms of Latin-Caribbean music which can be seen in the movement of the prints used in the suits. The silhouettes are designed to atter a womans body and accentuate the gure she wants to exhibit. This was my rst year showing at CFW. It was a great experience. I loved the energy and being surrounded by such creativity and talent, and seeing the skills and visions of the other designers. I learned a lot, just from participating in itself. I came out knowing what it is I would do dierently and better next year. The Business Forum that they hosted for the designers was very informative and helpful in informing future decisions for my business. In the next ve years I hope that Jamaicas fashion industry would have learned the benets of networking and sharing, and realise that to build a self sustainable industry we rst have to hold hands and stand on each others shoulders.Juanita S ReidThe inspiration is the 50th Independence of Trinidad and Tobago. Transformation, uidity, change and intention to build. Its a thanksgiving. Its called O be YaH! Its an exclamation. of joy! The experience at CFW 2012 was a good experience. Firstly, I always see it as a meeting place of the designers in the region. Thus the role of CFW is important because of the separation by sea and language; this is one of the few times we get to meet. We were able to elect a new board for Caribbean Fashion Industry Association (CAFIA) and I am a member of the board. The CLOTH was able to make a few leads with buyers and we are following up on those. I want to see Caribbean Fashion in the next ve years may be through CAFIA clusters developed for production and marketing. Many small grouping of designers, manufactures and marketing persons in the region, these clusters are inter island so designers and manufacturers can be from dierent islands. I want to see island associations developed for designers and the development of a Caribbean designers association which is dierent than CAFIA. I would like to see collective shops in at least ve islands owned by designers and individuals who see the economic possibility of these collective shops. These shops can carry 25 best lines in the Caribbean. ||PJM||Robert YoungLouise Graham Syiim The CLOTHDesigners at CFW 2012 were asked to describe their muse for their collection, experience at cfw and vision for fashion in 5 years.

With the use of silk chion, shantung, dupioni and organza fabrics, I endeavoured to re-produce that feeling. Being in Jamaica always feels great, but visiting to present my collection; in addition to being the rst designer to represent my country the Beautiful by Nature Turks and Caicos Islands at the twelfth annual Caribbean Fashion Week was an unexplainable sensation. With over fty designers, it was indeed an honor and a privilege to open the spectacle. In the future, I see Jamaicas fashion industry booming; attracting more tourists; promoting Jamaica to the world; increasing exports, and provide unlimited opportunities for emerging designers, models, photographers and persons throughout the entire region.Kazz ForbesSaint George Fashion House My experience at CFW was beyond my expectations. Pulse and their sta, the stylists and models were a dream. Romae Gordon was exceptional with ample information and making me feel comfortable with the lead up to the show. Im forever grateful. I would love to see CFW grow within the next 5yrs and continue to invite quality, commercial and innovative designers to the mix. It was an amazing and humbling experience.Tigerlily HillCrown Atelier
