Lady In Red : The Spring/Summer 2013 Collection By Keneea Linton

The "Movers and Shakers" of the Jamaican Fashion Industry were invited to an Exclusive viewing of the Keneea Linton Spring /Summer 2013 Collection dubbed "Lady in Red".

Keneea is a naturally skillful and creative designer whose collection focuses on clean cuts and sophisticated finish that highlights the stylish contemporary look synonymous with Keneea Linton Designs . Since her launch in 2005 , Keneea has produced wardrobes for Miss Jamaica Universe and Miss Jamaica World , had collections presented at   Caribbean Fashion Week , Island Couture , Miami  International Week , Fashion for charity in Soho, New York and the first Jamaican designer to be featured at Brooklyn Fashion Week. She is also the host and producer of Mission Catwalk , a reality TV series aimed at discovering and supporting talented fashion designers from across the Caribbean.

The Event
The event was divided in 3 parts : Cocktails , Runway Show and a Pop Up Boutique . Upon entering the room , the first thing you saw were fashionably dressed mannequins in Red Gowns. The decor and ambiance set the tone and mood of the night as flashes of red lights gleamed from various corners of the room , beautifully complemented by red candles plus sofas and the beats of Bob Marley in the background. Mission Catwalk contestants such as Shenna Carby ( Season 1 Winner) and Crystal Powell ( Season 2 Finalist) were also in attendance . Below you will see pictures of the decor , as well as some of the esteemed guests who were in attendance. ( This post contains lots of pictures .. grab a drink .. you'll be here a while )


The Show 
The show featured key pieces from the upcoming 2013 line. Most pieces consisted of lace which was the item that seemed to be cohesive with the line as well as a Chanel inspired Blazer .. which i loved :-) This is definitely a timeless piece ... a look for all generations . The thing i liked the most about this line is that its relevant to our times. The pieces were really clean cut , well sewn and there was something for everyone regardless of age , social background , or financial status . They all looked really high end .. but not over the top .... really elegant and lady like. You could tell by the resounding sounds of the audience that this collection was well received . One male even expressed that he was "sent" by his wife to buy something because it is known that Keneea Linton always has great pieces.

The Pop Up Boutique

Key Pieces from the line were available for buyers at the event .

I really like the initiative Keenea has taken . She is giving Fashion a voice in Jamaica and she's also fostering the talents of young people in the Creative Industry . In my opinion there needs to be more people who are as committed as she is to Nation Building rather than Self Proclamation . Go Keneea ! We can't wait to see what you have in store for us for Season 3 of Mission Catwalk.
