I love Bert Keeter! Saw his interview dresses...he's all about elegance. He's chic...and you don't hear that word in fashion so much anymore. Fashion has become more and more about the label on the outside, not the quality or the cut of the fabric. Here's to Bert bringing them back!!!!!!


Go Anya!! Way to represent the Caribbean!!!


I will be supporting Anya Ayoung-Chee,from Trinidad and Tobago... she is an awesome designer!!!!
