Travel Diary: Ibiza in style day 1

20141107_080446

It’s been over a year since my first Travel Diary post. Here I am again with another one. Just like I promised in my last I Love Su outfit post, I want to share my photos of my first Ibiza trip back in November 2014 with you guys. We went there to celebrate the birthday of my sister and spent two days on this lovely island, known as a party island in the summertime. Being there in the fall season was perfect to me for a first time visit, because I really got to discover the island peacefully. Off season with no trailer load of tourists, just sunshine, a beautiful Mediterranean landscape and friendly locals. Continue reading “Travel Diary: Ibiza in style day 1”

Successful casting call for the Caribbean Fashion Show

Casting Call CFS (5)

In my special post of ten days ago I was talking about the model casting call of Caribbean Fashion Spot for the upcoming Caribbean Fashion Show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam. This casting day was held on Saturday, April 4 at South East in Amsterdam Southeast and was very successful, much to our content. Over 70 models came to our casting call, some with lots of runway experience, some with experience in photoshoots and add campaigns, some with a combination of everything and some with no modelling experience at all, but a very good motivation. All candidates that are worth to be considered for the job. Continue reading “Successful casting call for the Caribbean Fashion Show”

Caribbean Fashion Show Shoko

The first Caribbean Fashion Show organised by Dy Muñeca the Caribbean Fashion Spot is a fact. On Sunday October 12, a Caribbean fashion showcase was held in a beautiful venue near the Barceloneta beach called Shoko. As the PR Executive of Dy Muñeca the Caribbean Fashion Spot, I was very proud of our first fashion show, given the work of CEO and founder Dymuñeca. She picked the designers, put together a group of models – mostly of Caribbean descent -, put together the runway looks and produced the show. Chapeau!

Another Barcelona Trip

20141105_103342

Just 4 weeks ago I was in Barcelona to celebrate my 3oth birthday and do the first Caribbean fashion show for Dy Muñeca The Caribbean Fashion Spot. Now I’m back after 3 weeks, this time it was for the celebration of my sister’s birthday which was this past Friday. We went to Ibiza for her birthday and had us a sunny good ol’ time. The past weeks there wasn’t so much going on here on XX Fashion Diva as I had other things going on and took a little step back. But after this trip that is about to change. As you can see I still did my weekly posts on Monday and Saturday.   Continue reading “Another Barcelona Trip”

Moschino brings you Barbie’s dream wardrobe

Barbie inspires Moschino

When it comes to Moschino fun, playful, provoking and unorthodox are words you can best use to describe the looks this Italian brand gives you. As the late designer Franco Moschino didn’t pay any mind to the fashion elite, the current designer Jeremy Scott, who made his debut at Moschino last season, is happy to continue this tradition. No one can do Kitsch better than Scott and with his Spring/ Summer 2015 designs he proves this again. Continue reading “Moschino brings you Barbie’s dream wardrobe”
