Donna launches Canopy with a message

A serious message will be imparted tomorrow afternoon through fashion when well-known designer Donna Ramsammy-James launches her 2011 collection ‘Canopy’.

Donna will transform her D’Urban Backlands residence into a fashion run way which will not only hammer home the importance of protecting the environment but will also seek to highlight Guyana’s natural rainforest and warn against littering.

Protecting the environment is big on the front burner for Guyana with President Bharrat Jagdeo leading the way with his Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS) and it is with this in mind that Donna decided to focus on the issue in her 2011 collection aptly titled ‘Canopy.’
“The title ‘Canopy’ is in synergy with the importance of foliage to forest ecosystems world-wide and international activities to mitigate the anticipated effects of climate change,” Donna said.

Known as a designer of style and class, Donna once again promises a “stunning display of elegant ladies’ and men’s wear incorporating the softness of Asia, the depth of Africa, and colour of the Caribbean.”
