CFSTYLE.com was on hand when Meiling presented her latest collection at the Carlton Savannah two weeks ago. We hailed the collection as brilliant and stunning for the variation and creativity in what we saw. Meiling and her team continue to push the boundaries on what we have come to expect from them. Here is our interview with Meiling after her presentation. We will be posting our pictures from this event soon.
Q. What is the name of your collection that was unveiled recently?
Q. What was the inspiration for the new collection and the pieces?
My aim was to design 100 beautiful pieces each one a jewel.
Q. How long did it take you to put together the collection?
From conception to show 3 months
Q. The mens wear line was very impessive, what is the target for Meiling Men’s wear line going foward?
To appeal to the man who dares to step out of the box but not be outrageous.
Q. What has the feedback been thus far from the 2011 collection?
Q. What are your thoughts about what has been achieved in Caribbean Fashion for 2010 thus far
and your projections for 2011?
I think that 2010 so far has been very encouraging for the industry. The Fashion Association of Trinidad and Tobago was launched,Our Prime Minister has endorsed the industry Finally I feel that we have hope to refuel our industry and inspire the up and coming designers.However we must be determined to work diligently and together to realize our goal.
