The just concluded instalment of Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW) 2014 showcased collections from designers belonging to the UK, US, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua, British Virgin Islands, Barbados, Ethiopia, Cayman Islands, and Zimbabwe. 
 
Tobago-based emerging designer Diamond Linton’s clothing line Tobago Gyal, which featured bustline accentuating long elaborate flowing skirts and dresses, was loosely inspired from Spanish flamenco dancer’s costumes.
 
Another young 17-year-old talent from New York, Yvonne Jewnell showcased an interesting line replete with vibrant bold outfits made from unconventional fabrics at the event which was held in the Jamaican capital city of Kingston.
 
In addition to the above mentioned names, designers like Angelie Martin, Diana Williamson, Mahlet Afework, Barry Moncrieffe, Brenda Winstead, Jacqueline Cohen, Saleem Samuels, Tameka Jervis-George, Tigerlily Hill, Sabina Mutsvati and Amril Douglas also displayed their knitwear, resortwear, swimwear and women’s and men’s creations at the soiree.
 
Apart from the glitzy catwalk parades, the event also hosted competitions and workshops for young designers, alongside business forums on topics ranging from branding to public relations.  
 
An on-site shopping lounge, selling clothes right from the catwalk parades, was also organized on the sidelines of the fashion week, which is currently in its 13th year.
