When I first saw CAFD (Caribbean Academy of Fashion Design) student Adrian Foster's origami style shirts and shirt dresses with intricate details and folds in the chest, the first thing I thought of and remembered was seeing trendy school kids iron folds and geometric patterns into their school shirts. It was a short term trend and at the time I just thought it was creative but a waste of time (I was a nerd). I wasn’t actually in Secondary school at the time, I had just about finished with that phase of my life but I watched with curiosity as they paraded down the East-West corridor.
Not only Adrian’s folds and details attract me however. I’m a white shirt fan. I’m obsessed! I love classics and well tailored basics. That and his pops of colour and obvious sense of style has me keeping an eye on this Caribbean Fashion Designer.
