Once again I return home following a visit to a neighbouring island, tired but absolutely inspired. High on the adrenaline of another Hot Couture (see pages 19-29), I took myself to Guadeloupe’s annual Kreyol Fashion Days. Also there were some of the most effective motivational speakers I’ve been privileged to encounter, along with the movers and shakers from the fashion industry who represented Brazil, France, Haiti and several other Caribbean islands.
What a marvelous opportunity it was to share our experiences and learn from each other. Almost palpable was the collective determination to strengthen our creative arts sectors. Once again it was evident that the islands of the Caribbean are loaded with raw talent waiting to be developed. If only we would focus on the arts, I believe it could easily be our strongest export resource.
So, my special thanks to the organisers of Kreyol Fashion Days for the opportunity to speak about and share an aspect of my magazine and my own little island aptly nicknamed “Helen of the West Indies.” Look out for full coverage of the Guadeloupe event in our next issue.
Deserving of a special mention are this issue’s cover ladies—the talented and dynamic Compton sisters, Fiona and Nina, each with her own fascinating story. They epitomise what self-made is all about, and Saint Lucia is all the richer for their wonderful contributions (see pages 32-36).
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart. And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
