    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – THE streets of Basseterre are usually transformed into a ‘fashion runway’ on Friday afternoons, as many people could be seen donning their best as if honouring the start of a well-anticipated weekend lime.

     

    COLOUR BLOCKING BEAUTY

     

    Not everyone believes that he or she is skilled with fashion art of colour blocking, although many fashion experts claim that such takes little skills to pull off.

     

    This dressing technique involves mixing and matching items of different colours and actually making the outfit ‘work’.

     

    Akillah pulls it off quite well!

     

    “I like all kinds of colours. I got my hair done by Denise of Angel Salon and my nails were done by Shonette.”

     


    REGAL RASTAS!

     

    Rastafarians of both sexes are known to have a cultural ‘glow’; be it the clothing, headdress or medallions and badges.

     

    But just as it is in other faiths, in many instances, there is a touch of modern cultural influences.

     

    El Kaya Binghifari Tulamakah

     

    Speaking to this Rasta brother, it was quite pleasing to hear that he was familiar with SKNVibes’ fashion corner.

     

    “My clothing is more like anciency; embracing black heritage and black culture. My headdress always matches my clothing…Bobo Shanti culture. As Rastas, we wear decorations like the ankh and royal badges and chains from the Black House of Israel.”

     


    Bob Justice Ishumali

     

    He declared that his badges and other clothing decorations are for the “upliftment of I and I as a race and culture...black people”.

     

    As a Rastafarian, it has been observed over the years that many high school students, both boys and girls, like wearing the Rasta medallions. The reasons a group of students gave vary from an interest in the Rastafari Movement to the fashionable outlook of these cultural items.
