Life After the Catwalk

Monday, April 8, 2013
Hi Guys! Today is the start of a Brand New series . "Life After the Catwalk" features the contestants from the 2 past seasons of "Mission Catwalk " . Haute People has caught up with 4 of these contestants and would like to share what they have been up to after the show.


Today , we'll be hearing from Janelle Forde the Barbados native who is the head designer at J. Angelique , her own brand.

 H.P: What was your greatest motivation for being on the show each week?
I truthfully wanted to improve each design and its construction each week. It was a basically a battle with myself for every mission.

H.P: How would you describe your personal style?
My style is very classic and I love to play with colour. My looks consist of key functional pieces with accents of colour just for fun.

H.P: What was it like meeting "Tim Gunn"?
He was very pleasant and seemed excited to meet a Caribbean designer. He gladly accepted my card and details without hesitation.

H.P: Tell us about your latest collection?
Lime. Fete. Style! and MonDiva Carnival Monday Wear were geared towards Trinidad and Tobago's Carnival. It comprised key pieces to be worn at your favorite carnival events and stylish Monokinis


H.P: What can we expect to see from you in the coming months?
The J.Angelique woman is a real woman...she plays hard and work hard; therefore, I am preparing collections for both activities.


H.P: Spring or Summer?
Summer, less is more. I love to bare it all for the dry weather!

H.P: Any words of advice for the new contestants?
Be your own judge and do what you do best!
