Elegant, trend defying and graceful — a Remilda Rose woman knows whom she is, what she wants to look like and she feels good when she looks good. Designer Gillian Curry-Williams’ debut spring/summer 2015 collection embodied an unparalleled level of luxury.
Her 26-piece collection left no stone unturned as she took people on a journey of “Rebirth” during the debut of her renamed and rebranded design house — Remilda Rose Designs, with a fashion show at The National Art Gallery. Her collection was displayed on women of all different sizes, shapes and heights. Real women saw real women on the catwalk.
The “Rebirth” collection was comprised of an array of exquisite fabrics with a luxurious color palette, floral designs, and an abundance of crystals and jeweled fixtures to demonstrate the sensational upgrade of what Curry-Williams says is the sensational upgrade of the Remilda Rose Woman, and the transition from her history into her destiny — stepping out of darkness and stepping into bejeweled, crystallized light.
Curry-Williams said a Remilda Rose woman refuses to be confined by trends or defined by mass-produced fashion. She said a Remilda Rose woman defines what and who she is by the sophisticated and tasteful manner in which she chooses to dress and subsequently live, knowing that she is fearfully and wonderfully made in the eyes of God.
Curry-Williams’ lustrous interpretation of reinvention rings true with her whimsical creations, beautiful day dresses, dazzling cocktail and evening dresses and intricately designed power suits.
With her Caribbean flavored high fashion experience, infused with a newly acquired modern Canadian perspective, Curry-Williams believes she is definitely a designer to watch, with a new lease on life, and a new way of doing things. Curry-Williams has been a force in the Bahamian fashion business for over 20 years, and been involved in every aspect of the industry from owning her own design business “Simple Elegance Couture” and the founding of her own school, Hei-Dons School of Fashion, and now the latest birth of her fashion house Remilda Rose Designs — an ode to her grandmother, Remilda and her mother whose middle name was Rose.
