Trinidad & Tobago designer Heather Jones stole the show at the Miami Fashion Week last week where she presented her latest Ocean Collection and a selection from her Evening, Beachwear and Bridal Collections.

Hand painted silk chiffons in varied weights, in the vibrant colours of the tropics, filled with the energy and abundance of the Caribbean life set the runway alight!

The Colours of the Ocean collection, inspired as Heather Jones peered out of the plane window and found herself mesmerised by the colour palette of the ocean, turquoise blues, rich royal blues, greens and purples, as well as coral red.  These colours hand-painted on the silks intermingle throughout the collection and are embellished by diamantes emulating the sparkling sunshine upon the water.

Heather takes immense pride in explaining how

no single dress is the same, each one is hand-painted by skilled artisans in Trinidad & Tobago, so each pattern each colour combination will be slightly different from the next.  We aim to offer exclusive romantic sensuality and elegance with every garment we craft”

Behind the scenes!

Beautiful lace trousers embellished by embroidery and diamantes worn with long slip on dresses, followed by dream-like flowing summer and cruise evening gowns and cocktail dresses.
