Kaj Designs Tribu Sauvage at BLUEPRINT

Kaj Designs, Tobago’s premier fashion house, will lead the Caribbean as it unveils its latest resort collection, Tribu Sauvage, at the international fashion trade show, BLUEPRINT, in Singapore. From May 16 to 19, 2013, Kaj will join Asia’s finest as the first Caribbean brand to exhibit and show at the core of Singapore’s fashion week, Asia Fashion Exchange (AFX).

In its fourth year, BLUEPRINT, is the only Asian fashion trade show that specializes in launching pre-spring collections. While curating fresh and forward menswear, womenswear and accessories from Asia’s most-talented emerging and established designers, BLUEPRINT also attracts leading international brands set on penetrating Asian markets. As one of BLUEPRINT’s mid-luxury brands, Kaj will be in the company of Yacht 21 of Singapore, Akiko Ogawa of Japan, Religion Clothing of the UK, and Creazioni Antonella of Italy.

BLUEPRINT’s calendar of events includes a two-day shopping and lifestyle event, EMPORIUM, from May 18 to 19, 2013 where fashion lovers can look forward to culling samples, limited edition items and off-season collections. The Tobago brand was honoured to win its bid to host one of six runway shows that will take place over the four-day fashion event. On May 16, 2013, Tribu Sauvage will make its runway debut to an audience of buyers and media including David Jones of Australia, Harvey Nichols of Hong Kong, Edition of Japan, Vogue Japan, Vogue Italia, Harper’s BAZAAR UK and Senken Shimbun of Japan.

“We are very excited to welcome Kaj Designs on board BLUEPRINT Trade show and EMPORIUM this year. The bold and eclectic brand celebrates the dynamism of diverse cultures – an outlook that we at BLUEPRINT share. We look forward to hosting them in Asia and expanding their reach into new markets,” shared Tracy Phillips, Project Director of BLUEPRINT.

Kaj‘s newest collection marries luxury with the appeal of simple designs that jet set from a relaxing resort setting to fast-paced city life. For the discerning woman, Tribu Sauvage juxtaposes bold tribal infusions against a backdrop of wild animal and camouflage prints. The collection goes from everyday to evening in jersey knits and indulgent silk blends that gently hug the contour.

With a sound business strategy and dynamic marketing tactics, Kaj is focused on establishing a stable presence in Asian markets. “I am excited yet I feel a sense of responsibility to display the Caribbean to these vast Asian markets. This is a stepping stone for the Caribbean to be at the fore of international fashion,” asserted Kaj’s designer, Ayoung-Julien.

To the sophisticated woman who confidently asserts her sense of style, Kaj’s newest creations deliver understated sensuality. Explore a haven of style with Kaj Resort 13/14 at BLUEPRINT. Visit Kaj Designs at booth A15 and discover the KajFAB safari of Tribu Sauvage. To learn more about the brand send an email, call (868) 639-6KAJ(6525) or visit us online.

Kaj Designs – Tribu Sauvage Collection

 

 

Upscale Tobago fashion house Kaj Designs has worked steadfastly to position itself as a global leader in Caribbean fashion. Led by the dynamic partnership of President/Creative Director, Kevin Ayoung-Julien, and CEO/Director, Liza Miller, this year the brand is focused on growing its export potential and generating international sales.

The brand launched Kaj Resort Line in June 2010 and exhibited the collection, Shore Culture, at the 2010 Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW) in Kingston, Jamaica. In June 2011, Kaj marked an historic milestone with its launch in the French Caribbean with the placement of the Kaj Resort Line at Guadeloupe’s exclusive Caribbean boutique, KOD. This move established KOD as the first and sole retailer of the Kaj brand in the region.

In February 2012, Kaj received one of its highest honours as it was selected to represent the Caribbean in an initiative of the Caribbean Export Development Agency (CEDA) entitled Caribbean Collections. This initiative sought to create opportunities for access to European markets via participation in the inaugural International Fashion Showcase at London Fashion Week (LFW) Autumn/Winter (A/W) 2012. In the label’s LFW debut, Shore Culture was favoured as it featured at an exhibition held at The Charing Cross Hotel while select pieces featured at a private showing at the Corinthia Hotel.

The Shore Culture collection made its final appearance on the runway at the Ocean Style Fashion Showcase during the 2012 Audi Celebrity Golf Invitational in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The brand closed 2012 with the stellar achievement of copping the Tobago House of Assembly’s (THA’s) Business Development Unit’s (BDU’s) Most Promising Entrepreneur award at Tobago’s 2012 Business Awards in October.

As Kaj Designs looks to the future with the impending launch of the new Kaj Resort 13/14 collection, Tribu Sauvage, the young CEO shared, “I have taken an holistic approach in managing and marketing the Kaj brand which began with developing a sound business plan. It has taken several years of consistent research and planning to get us to this point. Fashion is not just about creating beautiful clothing. To ensure success, there must be a real strategy that informs all aspects of one’s operations.”
