Last Saturday night as the outfits in the Flash Back Era segment walked down the runway at the Barbados Community College’s BCC Got Talent/Model Search, there were many oohhs and aahhs.
“Wow”, was the response of many in the audience. “Who designed these outfits?” was asked repeatedly.
Those garments which so many admired and depicted the 1940s through to ’80 so dynamically were those of Krystal Cobham of Kadburry Designs.
The 26-year-old is an aspiring beach wear/casual/semi-formal designer operating from here Market Hill, St. George home.
A past student of the former Louis Lynch Secondary, this young woman – though only in the fashion world on a full-time basis for about three years – sees her future very bright. With some push from best friend, Maria Rowe, after becoming unemployed she decided to follow her creative juices.
BCC Got Talent/Model Search was officially her first fashion show and she intends for it not to her last. So she made a goal to also showcase her work at other fashion shows like: BMEX, Barbados Fashion Week and maybe in the future, Caribbean Fashion Week. Her ultimate goal is to own her very own boutique. (KC)
