The event was hosted by Bernadette McKinley Matalon representing the franchise Holder Laura Butler. She kept the programme light with her down-to-earth persona, while ensuring everything ran smoothly.
Barrett’s wardrobe was filled with everything to suit her daily requirements. The wardrobe includes designs by Heather Laine with cocktail attire, daytime dresses and things from their basics collection. There were fabulous evening dresses by Courtney Washington that were featured in this year’s Collection MoDA fashion show just a week ago. While her efforts were cut short due to the loss of her husband, Keneea Linton still managed to add a stunning red dress to Barrett’s wardrobe.
Miss Jamaica World’s swimwear was provided by Denise Heffes Kats ‘Escala’, formerly Spunk Swimwear, as well as Suzilee McLean-Chambers’ ‘Lee Ann Designz’. Western Sports gave Barrett Puma-branded athletic wear for her fitness competition. Flowerchild 1999 rounded off her wardrobe with fine accent pieces, while she would be fully accessorised by The Finishing Touch.
There were also beautiful pieces provided by Bliss Bridal, Andre Shirley of Anarcy, and Sophia Max-Brown. However, Barrett’s final gown that is provided by Arlene Martin of DrennaLuna will have to be seen on December 18, when the competition will be broadcast.
