M-SEW SS 2016: Cup Match Runnings

By :- Caribbean POSH


Cup Match is Bermuda's annual two day holiday that revolves around a cricket match between the East (St. George's) and the West (Somerset) end of Bermuda. This significant summer holiday is becoming the islands carnival. The event now has activities that last a whole week. The traditional team colors are  red, and blue for Somerset; navy blue, and light blue for St. George. It is these colors that are featured in the collection presented by Meagan Wellman during  NYFW SS2016 at Harlem Fashion Row. Caribbean designer Meagan S. E.  Wellman brought the culture of the Caribbean to NYFW SS2016.
