FASHION DESIGNER Saleem Samuel has been in the industry for several years and has featured collections at Brooklyn Fashion Week, Caribbean Fashion Week, Jamaica, Tobago Fashion Coda and Miami Fashion Focus. His collections have also been featured in St Kitts, St Lucia and Barbados.
Saleem’s 2018 collection entitled Monte Carlo is reflective of the Circuit de Monaco which is synonymous with prestige, royalty, luxury and the international crossroads of style.
This collection attempts to highlight these features through fusing quintessential fashion elements reflected in elegant, trendsetting designs, creating a fantasy that transports the mind of the user to another place and gives an insight into the future, said a media release.
The selection of fabrics such as chantilly lace, stretch mesh, silk organza, twill and reflective fibreglass organza and silk chiffon are rich in texture, soft and easy to wear.
The array of ensembles symbolises resort wear, bridal, work and fun weekend getaway that speak to the various needs of today’s generation with a penchant for mixing and matching pieces to suit their own personal taste and style.
The collection also portrays the man who is bold and confident, one that does not shy away from vibrant prints, colour and alternative fabrics.
The classic palette of black-and-white designs are interspersed with the occasional burst of colour designed to appeal to the Caribbean man and woman.
Monte Carlo will be held on June 18, at 6.30pm, Queen’s Hall, St Ann’s. Tickets are available at Queen’s Hall Box Office and The Bridal and Curtain Shoppe.
