Caribbean Fashion Week featuring Marley Apparel: Recap

A throw-back post on a Monday may be unheard of these days, but hey this is how BBLA gets down! jk.
I would like to take you babes back to 2 weeks ago, and recap Cedella Marley's amazing runway show during Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW) held at the National Indoor Sports Center in Kingston, Jamaica.
CFW is an internationally renowned fashion week featuring exceptionally talented designers and attracts major celebrities every year.
Marley Apparel is a new and exciting men’s clothing line, drawing inspiration and paying tribute to the late and legendary Bob Marley and his signature style during the 60’s and 70’s.
Designed by his eldest daughter Cedella Marley, the collection embodies Marley’s passion for life in the studio and on the soccer field. Iconic images of Marley are brought to life using high quality and sustainable fabrics to create a collection of modern day casual-wear with a retro twist.
The Marley Apparel Fall/Winter 2014 Collection boasts a series of heavy cotton-slub varsity sweaters, washed cotton twill bottoms, French terry knits and chambray woven men’s shirts.
Every design element in this exclusive new collection serves to stay true to Bob's fashion sensibility- from top of the range sustainable fabrics to distressed enameled buttons. Each garment is adorned with a Marley Apparel signature tea-stained woven label, featuring the Rastafarian spiritual symbol of a crown.
Below I added a few of my favorite looks from the collection. Check it out ya'll!

A portion of net proceeds from the sale of Marley Apparel will go to the One Love Gardens initiative. One Love Gardens helps fund and create self-sufficient, eco-friendly plots of land for the less affluent communities to grow food and herbs in Jamaica and eventually around the world

XOXO 
One Love!
