never a dull moment

There is never a dull moment with us. Coming right off Caribana, we're gearing up for several big events. We're awaiting photos of several high profile celebrities who were exposed to the Collection in LA a few weeks ago at the charity event LA Style; Swimwear. We don't want to spoil the fun and tell you who they are until we can post the pictures. But stay tuned for that. And news of the next celebrity event.

Big news this week. Our branding consultant from New York who designed our branding materials, Everard Findlay, was featured in the September issue of Men's Vogue!

Both on pages 38 and 154, Everard is featured with a $3300 Gucci pinstripe suit in gray with black stripes. He looks totally cool, and he should, because he is indeed a cool, talented guy. Next shot of Everard we hope will include the Liz Mannette cufflinks. But this is great as Everard has invited me to participate in his Six Drums/Six Artist exhibit to be held in NYC in October. No doubt, big names in the fashion world will be paying a bit closer attention to him, so we'll be sure to hear more of this.

We're on our way to New York where the steelband community gets together for the biggest steelpan party outside of Trinidad at the Brooklyn Steelband Competition of the Labor Day Celebrations. And Liz Mannette will be there. Look out for our promotional postcards at the steelband show at the Brooklyn Museum. We will also be supporting WIADCA at their Labor Day breakfast for the City's political, business and media leaders. More on that once confirmed. We are also aiming for a retail event or trunk show in New York just around this time as well. Stay tuned folks
