Post Green Earth Festival 2014

Green Earth Festival took place 22nd June, 2014 at The Retreat Village road. Many came out in support of this initiative and Nu Woman was there to capture a bit of it.

“The reasons to Go Green are as diverse, simple and yet as complex as existence itself. But they are all critically important, To me, simply put going green is about going back to the source or back to nature,” say Aisha one of the co-founders of Green Earth Festival (Bahamas)

Rhonda Wright and Aisha Nesut Ani are the head Naturals of Green Earth Festival. Read their full story here – Green Earth Festival, the Women Behind the Brand.

This year, Labo Ethnik was held at Cite de la Mode in Paris, France, and took place from May 22 to the 26th. Many of this year’s designers and artists hail from countries such as: St. Lucia (Lyn Bristol), St Vincent (Shernicia Mayers), Trinidad (Heather Jones), the French speaking Caribbean, Vietnam, Europe, Africa and China.
The purpose of Labo Ethnik Fashion and Lifestyle Show is to gather creative designers from around the world and give them an opportunity to showcase their work and to offer them a professional platform to network with fashion buyers and the fashion press, e.g. Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, television journalists and fashion bloggers.

St Lucian and Parisian fashion celebrity, Vincent McDoom, who was recently appointed casting and creative director (with a 5-year contract), handpicked thirty (30) multicultural female models and fourteen (14) male models to participate in this event.

Among this list were 3 models from St. Lucia: Brittany Noon, Tangie Butcher and Tania Biscarlet and one male model from The Bahamas, Ajayi Ballentine Clarke.
