Jamaican Designer D’Marsh Presents La Vie du Noir Fall 2016 Collection Inspired by Race and Color in America

Jamaican-born New York based designer Glenroy March will present his latest collection La Vie du Noir on Thursday, February 18 at 7:00 pm at Coco Mat as part of New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016. The Soho District location of Coco Mat, a high-end European mattress maker, will again serve as the venue for D’Marsh Couture’s Fall 2016 runway show, which coincides with the celebration of Black History Month.

According to designer Glenroy March this season’s collection draws on the immigrant experience and the Fall 2016 collection is inspired by the story of a black stylish couple from the fashion capital of Paris who emigrated to New York City and the challenges of race and color they face in adjusting given their strong sense of style and fashion.

“Language is and always will be an essential element in the struggle for understanding among peoples, and the language of style is key to this understanding,” noted March.

Following a successful partnership last season, Caribbean Food Delights (CFD), the leading Caribbean frozen food manufacturer of Jamaican style patties, returns as title sponsors.

iLAND Magazine, the quarterly style and entertainment news and arts magazine is this year’s Platinum sponsor while the Jamaican American International Caribbean Chamber of Commerce is on board as a Silver sponsor.

Other sponsors include Sinners & Saints which will provide jewelry while CG & D New York will provide shoes.
