Great news for Caribbean fashion! Cayman Islands based luxury fashion brand, Isy B. has teamed up with New York based online fashion marketplace Nineteenth Amendment. This unique collaboration was made possible through Nineteenth Amendment’s commitment to give talented designers around the world a global platform to launch collections.
The Manhattan based Nineteenth Amendment recently launched a partnership with US retailer Macy’s in September 2015 and through this collaboration the Isy B. line will now be accessible to over 6 million shoppers every month.
“I am thrilled to be able to offer this collection through Nineteenth Amendment,” noted Isy Obi lead designer of Isy B. “As an independent fashion designer based in Cayman, it can be a challenge to reach an international audience and to manage my production efficiently in a way that makes financial sense. Nineteenth Amendment is both a retail partner and a manufacturing platform that captures the spirit of my collection, allows to me sell directly to customers globally, and ensures exceptional quality though small-batch manufacturing by master craftspeople 100% in the U.S.”
The “Modern Tribe” collection is inspired by the diversity and natural beauty of the Cayman Islands. This collection celebrates its modern tribe. Cayman’s modern tribe has created rich new traditions by drawing from the heritage of all those who have migrated to the islands over the centuries.
