Bonding Through Dance Crazes

Remember when this song was a hit? “Follow the leader (leader, leader), follow the leader: now clap and wave”. If the roof was on fire we did not need any water, we’d just let that mother burn. This song went viral like a fire that could not and would not be stopped.

Jilla’s Jewellery Breaks The Norms

Her vision for the line was to create “a break from what’s expected and what should be, creating a complete change, a glimpse of what could be”.

Farewell Barrio Dimitri

The fashion scene in Barbados took a heavy blow this weekend when Barrio “Dimitri” Braithwaite passed away on Saturday, July 14th.

He was also a great connection to the rest of the fashion industry, making many friends with internationally renowned models, photographers, stylists, journalists, and fellow fashion bloggers.

Charlotte Raven (The Guardian, 2010) talks about the queenly aspect of the modern woman who thinks she is meant for better things and terms it as Madonnaesque. So how obvious can it be staring us in the face: we are the change we want be in the world!
