kaieteur news brings all the dirt from backstage of the guyana fashion weekend
Guyana Fashion Weekend backstage pass
Caught on tape?
While there was much to celebrate front stage of the Guyana Fashion Weekend it appears that much more was happening back stage. There was at least one unmentionable involving a Guyanese hunk and an international catwalk diva. As a result of that unmentionable being caught on camera so embarrassed was the lady that she wanted to fight the hunk for bandying about the photos. Entertainer was back stage when the lady lunged at the Guyanese hunk dishing out expletives galore. Confusion reigned back stage causing a somewhat late start but the organizers should be commended for the professionalism front stage. No, nobody got raped but there was certainly an actress in the house and in the end the GT hunk had to leave the event without putting in his second night appearance while the American diva was allowed to strut her stuff…Talk about unfair.
Clash of the designers
Trinidad took on Barbados backstage but it certainly was not a beauty contest or a boxing match and neither was there a football. At the centre of the clash were Barbados designers Kingsley Thorne and Trinidadian Dominique. Thorne's designs sizzled the night before and that was nowhere close to what was slated for night two. This time around Kinsley's showcase involved gold paint on the men for his swimwear line while Dominique wanted the said models to showcase his white garments. The war began when it was realized that Kingsley's line was right before Dominique's. Kingsley's contention was that the paint was removable in seconds with wet towels but Dominique would not hear of it and neither would one of the coordinators.
Step #1: Kingsley declared that he was no longer showcasing his line as he dragged his locks out of place.
Step # 2: He ordered the models to take off his clothes as he declared, “My line not showing tonight; the people are too biased. All the models take off my clothes”
Step #3: Kingsley grabbed all of his clothing began forcing them into the suitcase. “I leaving right now.”
Step # 4: The ladies kept their composure but two male models began crying bitterly as they expressed how disappointed their relatives who bought tickets to see them would be cheated of the chance to watch them shine.
Step #4 : As Kingsley headed for the door to wheel his line out through the audience models and designers got into the begging mode and saved the day (night).
According to Kingsley “I will never come back to do Fashion Week in Guyana … No way… I will be on TV in Barbados on Friday to say why… I am off to St Vincent from 02 09 07…it's a fashion show I am going to and I hope this one is good
