Jamaican Style: Luminously Hot in the Stadium

Added Feb 25, 2013

Kingston, Jamaica






February is black history month and we here in Jamaica celebrates Jamaica Day. I so wanted to represent my country to the full extend by wearing the Jamaican colours. Seeing that it was a last minute thing as I was informed on Thursday and the event was Friday morning I had to quickly get my thinking together.

I decided to use the panel dress where I could play with the colours and the time frame was very short. The colours used in my dress represent what my country stands for:

Green – represents the land and the lush vegetation and motivation to move the country ahead

Yellow – represents the sun, natural resources and the beauty of the sunlight

Black – represents the strength and creativity of the people despite the hardship and many challenges we faced

I modified the length by shorten it by 5 inches. I can wear it without leggings and with slender pants.

My dress turns head with its radiant beauty and the way I uses the colour. It is indeed a very sexy dress for hot days.

So happy I could represent Jamaica Day 2013 :-)

    Irie! I like the way you were able to use the colors of he flag in such a tasteful way. Very creative color blocking and the dress fits nicely too. Good job!

      Thanks Mary :-) I knew I would do the flag too but finding the right shade of colour was a bit of a problem but in the end the timing was right
