Dougla entices fashion lovers

“That most beautiful song resounds in my mind and my pores raise as I echo its words…

‘here every creed and race find an equal place…’ I smile every time. I can’t help myself. It’s what we’re known for…a mix of races and cultures joined in a land of favour which produced the sweetness of Dougla.

Pegus also credited brand manager Hayden Roberts for the creation of the image for the collection. She said he had been fine tuning and steering the image of the brand for several years.

Of the collection itself she told Newsday, “Fabulous! Fabulous! It’s all about my inspiration as to where I think we should be going in terms of fashion,” a sentiment that was echoed by Sharon Rowley.

“The collection is of the highest quality as usual of Claudia. “Claudia has lived up to what she had done in the past and we continue to expect the best from her and she delivers.” However, one young man was a little disappointed there were not enough pieces for men, especially as he found the women’s designs so “fantastic”.

She said: “At a Mehndi night in 2016 I encountered the Dougla. A black Trini sister marrying a white Canadian under Hindu rites and given away by an Indian brother.

Like a rare bird, the Dougla captured my imagination, haunting my creativity, teasing me on the ‘what next’ watch.

Dougla is a person with style and attitude.

Dougla is a shopper.

The Dougla buys, wears my designs and transforms my concept into a personalised style.

“Dougla is a Trini, a pelau of cultures, music, every creed and race; and at CP Designs we embrace our culture and offer you an explosion of notable creatives, a kaleidoscope of colours, a showcase of our red, white and black- and all that these colours can become.” The Dougla, she said, symbolises a pepper pot, a Caribbean thing.
