Travelers flock to the Caribbean for its beautiful  beaches, good food and perfect weather but there’s one overlooked  element that may be of wanderlust interest too---fashion. Burgeoning  designers in the United States and Europe are able to showcase their  work in popular fashion week showcases but Caribbean designers tend to  get over looked, so that’s where St. Maarten’s inaugural 2014 Color Revolution comes in. It’s aimed at providing a platform for up and coming  Caribbean designers who have the skills to be showcased on an  international level, but also to encourage sartorial enthusiasts around the world to consider new travel destinations for shopping sprees and  buying inventory.

Highlights from Color Revolution include Donna Dove’s convertible  dress-shirt collection, Lisa Faye's tye-dye caftans and dresses, and  Kaj’s breezy resort wear. Click through the gallery for more pieces from  the Color Revolution collections. --Starrene Rhett Rocque
