Well, we could have told you that… Islandistas have been everywhere for New York Fashion Week, at times making the front rows and more importantly, the after-parties look like CARICOM!
Antiguan stylist to the stars June Ambrose, Trini rapper Nicki Minaj, Barbados’ own Rihanna, St. Lucian fashion muse and editor Shala Monroque were among those spotted, as was it girl actress and rock offspring Zoe Kravitz (she of the Bahamian granny) and TV’s reigning star girl Kerry Washington (she of the Jamaican mother).
And of course, you know Caribbean people love a good fete! So the Fashion Week after parties couldn’t miss our islandistas at all. They were all there, particularly the models. Joan Smalls showed off her ‘#1 on models.com’ body on the red carpet at the party for DKNY’s 25th anniversary and can we say, she’s giving us a classic super back in the day vibe – amazonian and sexy! The Alexander Wang after party was apparently uproarious so of course, Rihanna was there, pictured chilling with the designer in yet another 90s’ influenced type outfit and taking selfies with Nicki Minaj, who also performed at the party. Jourdan Dunn was also at the Wang after party with a host of other models while Naomi kicked it with Diane von Furstenberg after closing (and closing down) her show.
