Fashion designer and director of The Tamia Carey Collection, Tamia Carey-Francis, hosted an exclusive holiday sip and shop last Thursday hosted by entrepreneur, philanthropist and diplomat Dr. Thalia Lyn at her comfortable location in ‘Ardennes Road. Lyn was chosen by Carey-Francis as the face of the evening because of “her fashion and her beauty”.
The evening attracted members of the diplomatic community, fashion enthusiasts and loyal customers eager to get their hands on the brand’s seasonal offerings of glitz and glam and soft sequins, in addition to bags, earrings ears and sandals.
There was, between retail therapy, refreshing sangria and savory bites courtesy of chef Marlon Reid.
