Just as observers of New York Fashion Week 2014 were getting this year’s Shala Monroque style fix, SHE Caribbean was preparing to hit the market featuring the Saint Lucian fashion phenom on the cover! With Ms. Monroque in high demand by venerable publications like Vogue, Tatler and Harpers Bazaar, that’s quite a scoop for the region’s favourite magazine for Caribbean women!
Shala Monroque is a household name in New York, where her effortless street-chic style has been hailed by editors and fashion watchers to be unique and “Neo-Classical” – a term Shala explains in SHE’s in-depth story about how “the island girl from Marisule” became the toast of the city that never sleeps. Her honest and candid account of growing up a child of the islands is compelling and inspirational, to say nothing of the amazing photographs, styled by Shala herself!
But that’s not the only big news from SHE CARIBBEAN!
In 2010, SHE marked its 10th Anniversary with a celebratory edition, but over the last three years the changing face of publishing and the economic pressures of a global recession resulted in fewer issues of the magazine. Nonetheless, the women of the Caribbean have never lost their passion and enthusiasm for the region’s only magazine dedicated to them.
Despite the hurdles, publishing powerhouse Mae Wayne answered the prayers of fans and supporters, and in November 2013 committed to relaunching SHE CARIBBEAN with three issues per year packed with the region’s best fashion editorials, thought-provoking articles and all the beauty, health and culture the magazine is renowned for.
“The women of the Caribbean islands have supported us throughout the years, and our response has been to give them what they want – more SHE CARIBBEAN! With the support of our advertisers we are committed to producing a world class glossy magazine which captures the zeitgeist of the Caribbean through fashion, beauty, culture and the stories of the women who make the region great!”
And this issue of SHE CARIBBEAN is no exception! Catch up on what’s happening in fashion with SHE’s lavish photo editorials, featuring the region’s best designers at Saint Lucia Hot Couture and Caribbean Fashion Week in Jamaica. Beauty and hair features include an article on tattoos – the latest trend to sweep the islands – and all the product advice you need to look fabulous.
So look out for your complimentary copy of SHE CARIBBEAN coming soon to glamorous outlets in Trinidad and Jamaica. With fourteen years as the region’s favourite women’s magazine, the only way is up!
