Claudia Pegus gives up as Fashion Association of Trinidad and Tobago Chairman

CFSTYLE.com seems to be on the pulse again with the needs of the Caribbean fashion industry. In our previous article we highlighted the need to look at fashion carers. Seems the recent head of Fashion association of  Trinidad and Tobago(FATT) seems to agree with this and has resigned her position in FATT and is calling for unity in the Caribbean industry.
We know our own struggles here even with getting designers to do interviews and to follow up with conversations. Over the next few months it will be interesting to see how things unfold, if any changes will be made. But we understand the position that many designers face and think that a new focus needs to be placed on the business of fashion. Those who want to get into fashion as a quick way to make money will fail to make an impact, however those with passion and commitment will make a worthwhile impact.

    THANK YOU CLAUDIA!! It is disparaging to think that until now no one has voiced these concerns. Thank you so much Miss Claudia- it is certainly a concept who’s time has come.

    How will we move forward with Fashion as a business in the Caribbean (my people are from Jamaica), if there is no one properly trained to do the work? If we ship out our work to China and India, how will our people benefit from the Fashion Industry? If we don’t pay fair wages, how on Earth can we COMPETE WITH THE WORLD MARKET?!!!

    We need to look at how we can become a viable Industry from all angles. Let’s get to work!!!

    By the way, I am a Designer with 30 years of experience under my belt (OSUN Designs) and also the Executive Producer of Queens Fashion Week in New York City.
