Few weeks ago I attended the third edition of Haiti Fashion Week (HFW) at the Karibe Hotel Convention Center in Petion-Ville, Haiti held from October 31st through November 2nd. This year’s theme focuses on the important linkages between fashion and heritage.

Here are the pictures from designer Jean Yves Marchand
What’s the fashion world like in Haiti?
Well, I think—in Haiti—the fashion world is growing year after year. We are a few designers who are really talented and have made the media here and overseas. There is a designers association [that launched] years ago, but [we] only [got] our first fashion week [off the ground] last year, which was a success in the international media. I definitely think we “Haitians” need to support our own creations, [and] support new and young talented designers. Be more involved in what’s happening in our country and take the Haitian fashion world to another level. – Kreyolicious
Sorry the pictures are a little dark for this designer. This was one of the first designers I attempted to shoot with my new camera. I was much better by designer 3 or 4, Lol.
