  1. SKETCHES??? REALLY??? IN 2009
    I TOTALLY THINK THAT SKETCHES TO SHOW OFF YOUR PORTRAYAL IS OBSOLETE & NOT A TRUE REPRESENTATION OF WHAT'S TO BE EXPECTED. THE DESIGNER CAN USE THE SKETCH TO WORK OFF OF SURE BUT NOT TO SHOW THE PUBLIC.
    BASED OFF THE SKETCHES IN THIS INSTANCE, THE COSTUMES LOOKED INTERESTING BUT THEN I WATCHED THE VIDEO & PAUSED IT SEVERAL TIMES TO MATCH UP DETAILS IN EACH COSTUME TO ITS CORRESPONDING SKETCH & THE ACTUAL DESIGNS LACKED.
    I APPLAUD THE LOCAL THEME & THE LOCAL CREATIVITY BUT I THINK I'D BE LESS DISAPPOINTED HAD I NOT SEEN WHAT THESE COSTUMES WERE INTENDED TO LOOK LIKE.
    IT MAKES IT SO DIFFICULT TO ARGUE MY CAUSE TO EMPLOY MORE ST LUCIAN TALENT & CREATIVITY IN THE DESIGN PROCESS BY BANDS LIKE J4F, FANTASY & RED WHEN WE SEE LOCAL DESIGNS THAT SEEM TO BE TRAPPED IN A 1990'S MAS TIMEZONE. CREATIVITY & DESIGN HAS TO EVOLVE WITH THE TIMES. HAD THESE DESIGNS COME OFF AS SKETCHED THIS'D BE A MOST BEAUTIFUL PORTRAYAL & UNDOUBTEDLY ST LUCIAN IN THAT BEAUTY.

  2. Ok seriously!!! these sketches should have never been displayed b/c they left me with great hope for beautiful things to come !!! then I saw these models and I'm still sitting here shocked like WTF!!! these would have been exquisite costumes if the actual design replicated the sketches, what great disappointed !!! I guess importing it is when this is the results of good ideas!!
