When Trinidad and Tobago-based Fashion Designer, Charu Lochan Dass asked www.trinidadweddings.com to partner with her for her first anniversary party, and bring over some of our TW Wed-Zine magazines, there was just no way we could refuse.
We are die-hard supporters of local fashion and we have been especially impressed with her label - CLD, ever since she launched last year.

Shortly after her first collection showed in Trinidad, in November 2013, Charu was jetting off to show an Autumn/Winter collection at New York Fashion Week, followed by yet another collection in September 2014, in NY as well.
Remarkable for one year's achievement, don't you think? Not many designers can say they've made those kinds of strides during their first year.
No wonder then, that the fashion crowd counted down the days to CLD's anniversary party that was about to happen on November 27, 2014 at her Gallus Street Boutique.
At around 7:30pm, all you could hear was the crowd murmuring and the photographers with their frenzied clicks, as models started their descent down the stairs.
The Holiday Glam collection was just about everything you would wear for the Christmas season - from brocade skirts, shift dresses, deep V-cut ballerina blouses, black sequined dresses and even metallic shorts.
Sweet and sophisticated, with a little hint of naughty. But - don't tell Santa!
Don't believe me? See for yourself...
P.S. Check out the stunning red, glittered lips on the models done by Sacha Cosmetics. I got the inside scoop and yes...they used real glitter specially applied!

The rest of the event didn't disappoint. No event with vodka and cupcakes ever could!
Speaking of cupcakes, my friend Amreeka from The Cake Boutique was there with her divine vanilla cupcakes with champagne buttercream and chocolate cupcakes with rum buttercream! (*photos by The Cake Boutique)
We're looking forward to seeing what else CLD has planned for 2015!
