About the Designer

Shoma’s roots lie in Trinidad and Tobago, the majestic twin-island Republic located in the southern end of the Caribbean island chain.

After having successfully graduated from a Marketing and Business Development program at the tertiary-level in Canada, her creative talents led her to join the fashion industry in 2014. Although the ambitious graduate has never been formally educated in the sector, her unmistakable passion and unyielding dedication to excellence guided her professional pursuits to co-establish a women’s resort fashion label in the Caribbean. The regional brand, which was well-received and amassed overwhelming support, was recognized in several features in various staple Caribbean publications. In recognition of the brand’s success, the reputable Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Industry & Commerce acknowledged the fashion label through its “Champions of Business” Awards. The nomination in the prestigious “Start Up Award” for the brands outstanding achievements has been a most notable accomplishment in Shoma’s career.
