The Brooklyn-based JLC Productions has partnered with MIST Harlem to host the Caribbean American Fashion Exchange (CAFÉ) reception on Wednesday in Harlem.
According to Janice Lawrence-Clarke, the Trinidadian-born founder, president and creative director of CAFÉ, the “Caribbeans in Fashion Meet & Greet” takes place at 6:30 p.m. at MIST Harlem, 46 West 116thStreet.
“’Caribbeans in Fashion Meet & Greet’ is the definitive reception that recognizes and acknowledges the Caribbean presence in the fashion industry, where featured attendees are formally introduced to those present,” Lawrence-Clarke told Caribbean Life.
She said the evening also serves as a fundraiser for the CAFÉ’s scholarship for two meriting Caribbean students to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).
“The CAFÉ scholarship will be awarded to two deserving students at a time, so together they could support each other as they enter the fashion industry, positioning their island countries in the Caribbean region and in the global market,” Lawrence-Clarke said.
For spring/summer 2020, she said the focus will be on fashion designers.
“Guests should expect to view the works of several including: Milagros Batista (Dominican Republic), Glenroy March (Jamaica), and Steven Daniel and Mel Simon (Trinidad and Tobago), along with the introduction of two young designers from St. Kitts and Nevis – Mikaya Collins and Shafeyah Guishard,” Lawrence-Clarke said.
