The Rise of the "Dougla"
"The Dougla is not a model. Dougla is a person with style and attitude."- Claudia Pegus
Wondering what I'm talking about? Internationally acclaimed fashion veteran, Claudia Pegus hosted her event "Dougla" at Long Circular Mall, St. James, Trinidad on April, 23rd, 2017 and what an event it was!
The crowd included many local celebrities and political figures who all came to see award winning designer Pegus' latest offering to the fashion world.
The collection displayed a perfect blend of texture and colour, with a range of flattering silhouettes and exagerated detail blended together. Some pieces also drew cultural references adapted to modern fashion. As Pegus would describe it, it was a collection that reflected a pelau of races and a kaleidoscope of colour and creative excitement coming together...a trini ting.
Pegus is known for her hand-done embroidery and attention to detail so it's no wonder that her clientele includes local and international dignitaries, models, influential figures and celebrities including Caribbean Heads of State, British MPs, and life mentor Nelson Mandela.
Dougla did not disappoint.
Here are some of the looks that we loved.
