Noor makes waves in T&T
News wave designer Noorulain Agha-Ganga might be from Pakistan, but her flair for designing for Caribbean women is natural. Rather than doing couture lines, Agha-Ganga has been aiming for the easy, breezy details that constitute island life. Judging from last Sunday’s unveiling of The Noor Collection held at the T&T Country Club, Champs Elysees, Maraval, the young designer has been achieving her objective. Tasteful designs in desirable cuts that are sure to appeal to varying ages filled the runway at the signature event.
Sponsored by Revlon, Angostura Rum cocktails, Caribbean Belle, Toyota and CreativeTT, the open air event had a troubled start. Advertised to start at 3.30 pm, guests jostled for seats with the best shade from the early afternoon sun. But moments later, they abandoned their seats due to the drizzle which intensified. But as fate would have it, the weather subsided and in the blink of an eye, models took the spotlight showcasing everything from the flirty to the conservative, form fitting and breezy to the satisfaction of the audience. The “A-listers” in attendance included Miss Universe 1997 Janelle Commissiong-Chow, Miss World 1986 Giselle Laronde-West, former captain of the T&T and West Indies teams Daren Ganga, right-handed T&T batsman Adrian Bharath, Marie Abdullah, the wife of retired diplomat Frank Abdullah, Dr Charlottle Bigland, wife of the British High Commissioner also came out for an afternoon of delightful fashion.
