Give us a little about your background? When did you start designing?
I was born and raised in Trinidad, but heavily influenced by U.S culture, especially their music & style. I spent a lot of my vacation time in the U.S so I would usually shop there, but as I got older there were times that I’d be in Trinidad and needed something to wear, and would have to resort to a seamstress.
I’ve always had a very small frame, so it was very difficult for me to find clothes in Trinidad that fit me, especially as a teenager. It was common for many people here (Trini) to turn to their seamstress/tailor when they had an idea for an outfit they wanted to wear- that was before online shopping took off, and international shipping made modern style much more accessible to Trinidad.
