    This article makes it seems like Selita is organising this event which is actually the hard work of Cindy Jones of Guavaberry Marketing and her husband. Selita was only asked to host (i.e. MC) the evening. I’m simply asking that you give praises to the right person(s).

      No where in the article did it say that Selita was organising the event it said SELITA IS HOSTING the event. Who cares who is organising it – the customers are not paying to see the organisers of the event they are paying to see the models and Selita who is a model, the host and our own home grown girl. Guavaberry Marketing are getting paid to organise the event and should it be a success then great they have made a name for themselves and can get other jobs.

    Girl power! Next step,convince all of governments aniquated thinkers to realize Cayman can export many things & a fashion industry is right in line with everything we are. Caymanian seamstresses are many generations in the making & many are very creative.Just one avenue that could employ many people & raise our profile. Talent is here in this area,why do nothing with it? Crown Atelier is a Caymanian power house,who’s line is innovative & superlative in quality & design.
