Fourteen Local Fashion Designers to Export their Creations to the French Caribbean
The Trinidad & Tobago Fashion Company Limited (FashionTT), a subsidiary of CreativeTT, is pleased to announce the success of their French Caribbean Inward Buyers Mission which took place at the Trinidad Hilton on September 21st & 22nd.
Fourteen local designers showcased their creations for eight buyers from Martinique and Guadeloupe and after two days of one-on-one meetings, they all successfully obtained orders for their products to be sold in boutiques and retail outlets in the French Caribbean market.
Lisa-Marie Daniel, FashionTT’s General Manager was delighted at the success of the mission and explained, “The aim of hosting this mission was to ensure that our designers obtain tangible orders by French Caribbean buyers. Having so many of them achieve this is not only a stepping stone for our designers to become major players in the global fashion industry but also validates the work of our creative industries in promoting local talent and establishing export relationships with other countries. This is a huge accomplishment for our designers and for FashionTT.”
