On Friday night, Shontelle Layne performed her new single I’m In Love (featuring Kato) at GCARIBBEAN Magazine’s second issue launch party, Caribbean-esque.
The rooftop party was an acme gathering of some 400 patrons, who were treated to a riveting live performance by the pop star.
Shontelle is featured on the cover of GCARIBBEAN’s second issue clad in Jamaican supermodel Nell Robinson’s BANG Swimwear. This was Shontelle’s first performance of the single in the United States.
“It’s our goal to present the best of the Caribbean, in the most sophisticated manner,” said GCARIBBEAN’s Editor-in-Chief Geoff Cooper. “I think we are achieving that with Shontelle on the cover of our second issue and the turnout at Caribbean-esque. This issue puts the spotlight on Caribbean-connected creatives doing amazing work globally. We’re new and we are committed to bringing new content to the fore that is definitively Caribbean, fresh and informative.”
The September Issue of GCARIBBEAN includes an exclusive interview with Shontelle, as well as supermodel Nell Robinson, luxury shoe designer Marc Hare, celebrity Chef Roger Mooking and more. GCARIBBEAN is the first of its kind publication, celebrating a unique, sophisticated side of the Caribbean spirit, culture, fashion and rhythms. The magazine presents a modern image of the Caribbean man.
Caribbean-esque is the first of a series of GCARIBBEAN Magazine events. Like the magazine, Caribbean-esque brought together an eclectic group of tastemakers of and connected to the Caribbean. Guests included, supermodel Corey Baptiste, reality star Camille McDonald, ABC’s Duet’s winner J Rome Wayne, Vanity Fair’s George Wayne, Billionaire Kevin McGovern, reputation doctor Michael Paul, Calvin Klein’s Nick Gruber, celebrity fashion designer Randi Rahm, Spiegal’s Richard Lowe and Prince’s keyboardist Sandra O’Neal.
The Quintessentially Groups’ ELEQT, Golden Krust Bakery, Hennessy, Lexxstar Chauffeured Services, L’ Occitane en Provence, Marley Mellow Mood, Milano Green Vodka and Vita Coco were sponsors.
