Silver Spring, Maryland: I’m absolutely in love with all things Caribbean! Our music, food, fashion, nature, vibes you name it! It’s my heritage and I’m always honored to emcee a variety of Caribbean events throughout the US and in the Caribbean!

 

This year, I had the pleasure of emceeing the 8th Annual Caribbean Style and Culture Fashion and Awards Showcase held at the Silver Spring Civic Building!

 

Founded by Cornel Jones, Karib Nation CEO & Founder, Caribbean Style & Culture is a fusion of fashion, music and art held annually in the month of June to commemorate and celebrate National Caribbean American Heritage Month. Yes, I know, I’m super late on this blog post! The fabulous fashion extravaganza brings the newest collections from the hottest Caribbean fashion designers showcasing the very best from the Caribbean and South American region!

 

Nine fashion designers came out to slay this year:

This year’s show had something for everyone!  Elegant gowns, classic couture, vibrant patterns, bold swim wear, Afrocentric fashion and fly male designs!  The event was packed with socialites, VIPs and international elite.

 

Huge congratulations to Creative Director Chantney Renese for curating an incredible show! Her team did such a fantastic job! Slay on Queen! 

 

For the night, I decided to rock a stunning gold gown by Award Winning Dominican Designer Arthlene Lawrence! This dress was everything!!!  Plus, it’s super comfortable! My make-up was provided by Celebrity Make-up Artist Mindy Green! This girl is so talented and I can’t wait for her to beat my face again!  Thank you ladies for making me look oh so fabulous!
