Okay so seeing that I’m from Trinidad, I can’t possibly not blog about this. From beauty queen to the source of some major controversy regarding a sex tape scandal, to the designer of her brand Pilar and the collection of lingerie for Pilar – Anya de Rouge, to now, an international superstar and winner of Project Runway…Dreams definitely do come true I’d say.
The reason that I’m mentioning this is simply because she’s done TNT proud and she’s shown the world the beautiful colours, fabrics, patterns and styles of the Caribbean. She portrayed what it meant to be not only a Trini, but a Caribbean woman with a bold sense of fashion, confidence and elegance. You have to admit that her pieces from her final collection on PR were absolutely stunning!
Also, her experiences, if anything, shows that although you can fall (and fall really hard), once you make the decision to redeem yourself, absolutely nothing can stand in the way of you, your success and what you are capable of. And if you seem to be stuck in a rut, always wondering what your future holds, then, like Tim Gunn so delightfully reminds us- Make it Work! Use whatever tools you have at your disposal to make something of yourself i.e. do what you can with what you have. The possibilities are really endless once you stop moping around and start being proactive.
Here are the pieces from her collection…Do I hear a future fashion icon in the making? See for yourself!
