Caribbean Fashion Designer of the Week Jan 13 - Jan 20, 2014

 

Sonia Noel

Last_Day_KKF_24_aug_Closing_Ceremony_with_designer_Sonia_Noel1[2].jpg Sonia Noel is a very talented fashion designer from Bartica, Guyana and is one of the recognizable designers in the Caribbean.  As a young girl she dreamed of being a fashion designer and has been designing for more than 20 years for family and close friends. She has a passion for innovation which she clearly applies in her designs. 

Before designing, she was the owner of a store in Bartica where she was selling mass produced clothing. It was just 16 years ago when she decided to start  her own clothing line, which is now today known under the label ‘Mariska’s Designs’.  Her label is a blend of Guyanese craftsmanship, Caribbean resourcefulness and universal style where her designs are appealing and exclusive. Though Sonia is mostly active in Georgetown, the label opened many doors in different parts of the world. She made a name for herself in the English speaking Caribbean and also entered markets in the Dutch, French, and Spanish Caribbean.   

She designs for children, men but mainly for women from housewives to first ladies. Her collection consists of casual- , resort -, formal - and also swimwear. And her clothing is since 2012 available globally as she launched a website where (potential) customers can purchase the clothing online. Over the years she has been active in many related fashion activities;  awarded at the 2011 US Virgin Islands Fashion Weekend, she launched Guyana Fashion Weekend, invited as the first Caribbean designer to present a biographical perspective on Caribbean fashion at Brown University, became the official designer of Barbados Music Awards. She also participated at fashion activities during Carifesta X and Carifesta XI.

Besides fashion she is also contributing to humanitarian projects. Through the ‘Sonia Noel Foundation for Creative Arts’ she aims to assist and encourage the talents in the Caribbean  in performing arts, visual arts, graphic arts, fashion arts, culinary arts etc. Last year she also raised funds in St. Lucia for the Sickle Cell Association and heightening awareness of the disease. Sonia believes that life is about making contributions to society and to give back to the community. She seeks to empower young people to realize their creative potential.

 


Sonia is a strategist, and a very driven and result-oriented person that keeps herself active in different (non) fashion projects. The coming years she plans to increase brand awareness and to be known internationally for the ‘Mariska’s Designs’ label and the ‘First Resort’ collection. We have met Sonia during Carifesta XI in Paramaribo, which was very pleasant, and we can assure you that this ambitious woman will take over the American and European market very soon! Her designs are one of a kind and she uses high quality fabrics. Her signature look is her hand-painted designs and the use of quadratic figures in the designs, very much recognizable. On top of that her long braids complement her signature look which we find distinguishable and sophisticated. She really knows how to stand out!
