Stepping into Fall Fashion

It is always exciting to see what is revealed on the runways in the major cities when the autumn/winter season starts. A flurry of color and patterns fashioned into garments designed by the biggest fashion houses gives audiences a peek at the hottest trends and what they can expect to see in the boutiques for the coming months.

This year, animal prints and browns seemed to be standout themes, along with accessories from oversized bags to small statement purses. Although warmer wear was obviously dominant on the catwalk, there was much to inspire those who live in sunnier climes, like the Cayman Islands.

Cayman actually has a few local designers of its own who are making waves in the international markets. Isy Obi of Isy B. Designs and Jawara Alleyne have not only been creating collections annually – they have also had their works displayed as part of an ongoing exhibition at the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands. Learn more about these designers and their goals in this section.

Last, but certainly not least, meet Miss Cayman Islands Caitlin Tyson, our cover model and beauty queen. Thanks to Rock Gorgeous Hair and Stephanie Ford Makeup for giving her a killer look.

This actress and model is clearly going to go far and we can’t wait to support her on Dec. 17 when she represents Cayman in the Miss Universe Pageant in Bangkok, Thailand.

Go, Caitlin!
