Back to Back: Meiling Collection 2017 Show by The Beacon Insurance Company Ltd. (2016)
9. This sheer confection (by Meiling) is definitely not your mother’s house dress. - 10 Moments We Love from Tanya-Marie Rhule’s Jamaican Getaway (Caribbean Lookbook, 2016.)
'Meiling launched her new 2016 collection entitled ‘Night Women’ at The Big Black Box on Murray Street, Trinidad. The collection was strongly inspired by the novel ‘The Book Of Night Women’ written by Jamaican author Marlon James. The theme encompassed Jamaican slavery in the 18th century and included an introductory mini production of the novel’s protagonist a young enchanting slave named Lilith. The runway show commenced with a sort of reincarnation of ‘The Night Women’ walks, as the models made their way from Meiling’s place on 6 Carlos Street to The Big Black Box on foot already dressed for the show.'

We love the structured yet easy dressing of Meiling’s Kite dress... It’s a shape most anyone can pull off and was yet another Caribbean designer item worn by fashion icon Shala Monroque. Mentioned by American fashion stylist and editor Rachel Zoe as one of the 10 best summer looks of 2015, we think the Kite Dress is trend-defying, quality design - a fashion statement we can make about many Meiling items.
...a surprising twist on Meiling’s collection and a successful risk that was modern and fresh. (BORROWED FROM THE BOYS, 2014 Collection.)
The mark of a good designer is to be able to create something of beauty that functions on many levels: the visual, the tactile, its form and function, its longevity. To do that you have to be a skilled craftsman and you have to be aesthetically attuned to your time and place, and that’s what I think she combines.
People think, because I’m a Caribbean designer, everything that comes out of me must be bright and tie-dyed. I say, no, I’m just a designer who happens to be in the Caribbean.
