Deep Camel Leather Stuns at Boston Caribbean Fashion Week
Boston Caribbean Fashion Week has become a staple in the city and a highly anticipated calendar event full of seminars, panel discussions, interactive mix and mingles and much more. In their nineth year of celebration, the week ended with its annual fashion show being held at the chic new space of WarehouseXI.
The evening opened with a warm welcome from Althea Blackford, Creator of BCFW and VStyle Productions. After some heritage acknowledgement the runway opened vibrant and full of color with traditional dance and carnival costumes from Wendy Matthews.
The collection fashion began with Eden Natural Lifestyle Boutique. Featured dresses showed, an everyday look for the bold women in the board room in a classy long cut dress with that taste of flavor in an emerald leopard print, a hot pink with strategic ruffles, popping florals mixed with block bold stripes, a take on a chic Channel baby blue skirt suit with a painted canvas top, and a sheer peek a boo cut lace and mesh showstopper reminiscent of ruby red island night.
Following was a smooth flow with an Afropunk feel from Just Tahanee presented by Bogo Split. The line had it all; crochet knit vest, denim dresses, a deep burgundy and cream crop top and skirt paired with a velvet pullover, right down to the outfit of the evening a deep camel leather crop top with a soaring long sleeve and matching bell bottom pant fit to perfection.
Closing the Caribbean runway was Urban Pigeons a bold speaking collection; donning bright African inspired colors and patterns the pieces were shown in everyday jackets, pants, and handbags to spice up any outfit.
