Jamaican Fashion Design - Beautiful

Since the 50th anniversary of Jamaican Independence was recently celebrated on August 6, 2012, and the Jamaican sprinter, Usain Bolt has recently won gold at the Olympics for two sprinting competitions (100m and 200m sprint) as well as a relay event where his fellow Jamaican sprinters also won silver and bronze medals much to the delight of Jamaicans and descendants everywhere, I decided to focus on Jamaican fashion designers.  Jamaica is an island where people are very fashion forward.  I'll contribute this to their fashion designers foremost.

Fabulous Fall/Winter Fashion

Top designers are using much more color for their fall, and in particular, winter collections.   Color is one way to brighten your own day as well as others and attracts attention.  There's a mixture of fabrics, and of course, layering of clothing.  I love the slim silhouettes for the upcoming seasons.  I guess you can tell I like what I'm seeing for fall and winter 2012-13.
