Winter Storm Nepture be damned – even amidst bone-rattling temperatures and snow, the show must go on and New York Fashion Week has been in full swing since last Thursday.
As usual, islandistas in abundance have been everywhere – from the catwalk to the front rows to the after parties. Stylish and savvy Caribbean women have been modelling, presenting, watching, writing and eve DJ-ing as the fashion season kicks off in the Big Apple.
And it’s all being recorded on Instagram. Check out New York Fashion Week – the islandista-gram edit!
