The sisters, Nicky and Simone, founded their label in 1991 and have been Fashion Week regulars since 1996. The designer of the duo, Nicky, traveled to Turks and Caicos to oversee the shoot herself.
She loved the colorful Caribbean charisma of the blue hills area, the backgrounds were perfect backdrops for the stylish prints, both bright and feminine.

There will be a meeting this evening, Tuesday March 23rd, at 6pm at the
I love this anti-littering logo that was announced at the National Litter Convention in London last December. Keep Britain Tidy and Defra
certainly hit the nail on the head with this genius little image! Simple, straightforward, and relevant all over the world. I stumbled across it while gathering inspiration/ideas for TCI Rubbish Runners
. That’s right, the club is now official (if a facebook page counts) and we are looking for more members. Please make a pledge to lift litter and join us to keep TCI “beautiful by nature.”
“How many plastic bags have you used today??….take a good hard look the next time you are at the grocery store and imagine where all those bags will end up….on the beautiful beaches, polluting the oceans, killing marine life, killing birds, caught up in the vegetation…..it’s time to change the way we live and start treating this planet with the respect it deserves….Mother Nature is starting to fight back. With everyone’s help, one day the Turks and Caicos Islands could be free of the single use plastic bag (and hopefully other single use items such as bottles, plates, cutlery). Please remember to take your reusable bag to the grocery store and encourage others to do the same. Turks &; Caicos, Beautiful by Nature, Clean and Green by Choice…..only with your help”
So cheers to TCI’s two new green thinking groups! If you are having a beer tonight to celebrate St. Pattie’s, please make certain you recycle your bottles!
Commonwealth Day was observed in the Turks and Caicos Islands yesterday under 2011’s theme, “Women as Agents of Change.” This relatively new holiday, concepted in 1975 by Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, is celebrated the second Monday in March with the goal of focusing “attention to the association and its contribution to a harmonious global environment.”
Who would be your personal “woman as agent of change?” Who would be your woman of change on an international level? My Turks and Caicos Islands woman of change is “Grace.” Although Grace can not share her real name she is willing to share her survival story
“No matter how horrible my experience was, I feel that speaking out is more positive than all the women who stay home and never tell anyone they were attacked.” . . . “I just hope that telling my story helps, in some way, to change things for the better.”
Grace your bravery WILL change things for the better. Your story is helping other victims cope and hopefully come forward. Your story is educating the community on injustices which need to be changed. Your story is igniting a fire of anger, motivation, and unity within women in these islands and beyond. Thank you for your courage. And thanks to another woman of change, Gemma Handy
not only for writing Grace’s story but getting it published in the Weekly News
