Caribbean Fashionweek (CFW) (June 7-11) showcased the talents of some of Jamaica's best designers. One of the highlights came from none other than Nigel Ramsay on the final night of CFW 2017.

The collection that consisted mainly of black pieces, with splashes of white and red, were subtle, easy-breezy pieces that still make a statement when you walk into a room.

Ramsay told Outlook that the line is a reflection of his return home to Jamaica. Being home, he explains, spurs his creativity, and this is his first collection he has shown since returning home to Jamaica two years ago. The line, he says, is for the mature woman who is worldly and self-aware.

Many of the women in the audience could easily see themselves in the pieces that were well-tailored and with clean finishes. Here is a glimpse of just a few of these classy designs.
