I had a virtual sit down with this Caribbean boss babe and now you get to read all about it!
Our latest virtual sit down is with Isy Obi, the designer behind the fashion brand Isy B from the Cayman Islands. We’ve teamed up with the line to host a giveaway, just keep on reading to find out how. So without further ado, let me introduce you…
What sparked your interest in fashion design?
I’ve always loved design; my mother was a fashion designer and she was taught by her mother, so it definitely runs in the family.
How do you gather your inspiration, and what does your design process look like?
I love to travel and no matter where I go I’m always taking in information on colours, shapes and textures. Nature is my greatest inspiration when it comes to finding balance in color. I also find inspiration in observing women. I love to see women in their element and when I design that’s how I want them to feel in my clothes. Special.
Every season we start with a concept and our colors, prints and the final styles are created from that concept. This season the concept was Caribbean Mermaid.
Chen Burkett New York is a line by an Antiguan born designer now living in the big Apple. There was a sale a few weeks ago that landed the CBNY brand on my radar. The volume and bright colors of the skirts had me wanting to be rocking one! Here are a few of my favorites.
