Fashion Designer Saleem Samuel has been in the industry for several years. During his tenure as a designer he 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. The 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. Hence the selection of fabrics such as Chantilly Lace, Stretch Mesh, Silk Organza, Twill and Reflective Fiberglass Organza and Silk Chiffon which are rich in texture and soft and easy to wear.
The array of ensembles symbolizes resort wear, bridal, work and fun weekend getaway that speak to the various needs of today’s generation who have a penchant for mixing and matching pieces to suit their own personal taste and style. The classic palette of black and white designs, interspersed with the occasional burst of colour, are designed to appeal to the Caribbean man and woman.
Saleem wishes to acknowledge the contribution of following persons towards the production of the show: Beverley Samuel, Terneille Samuel Herbert and Rose Adolphus
