The fashion weeks in major cities like New York, Milan, Paris and London, brought bold designs and colors to the runways last month. As usual, celebrity followers of favorite designers appeared on the front rows, and some even got in on the act themselves. Rihanna has been working with PUMA for the last two years, and revealed her Fenty collection of high-end activewear in New York.

Spring fashion trends are more relevant in the Cayman Islands, as you don’t tend to see many winter coats or anything fashioned from wool making its way down Seven Mile Beach. Check out our images of outfits from the major players in the designer world to get ideas for your wardrobe.

Grand Cayman may be small, but when a designer of Nicole Miller’s stature visits to give a sneak peek at her spring 2016 collection, as she did late last year, it shows that local boutiques are aware of, and follow, the market trends. Take a look around and you’ll find a wealth of choice that perhaps you didn’t know existed. Certainly, whenever we run these fashion issues, we get a fresh look at stock in local shops and are always pleasantly surprised by the variety of what’s available, including casual, nightlife and beach wear, along with accessories and shoes.

In order to complete your stylish ensemble, consider some of the latest makeup products on the market, and top it all off with a hip hairstyle.

Want a taste of local fashion designers and the runway experience? Then head to Cayman Fashion Week this month and see what all the excitement is about.

Be inspired by what you see, but don’t ever be afraid to march to the beat of your own drummer. It’s fun to follow the trends, and even more satisfying to be a trendsetter yourself.
