Carlton Brown brought his award winning Jamaican swagger to LG Fashion Week. He's one of the Caribbean's biggest designers and this was his North American debut. It was a really fun show and a crowd-pleaser. Did I mention that Carlton Brown does menswear? That would explain the reaction: hot men in cool clothing.

The soundtrack got people started. Some well know reggae tunes belted out that got many dancing in their seats. I was definitely one of them wanting to get up and bust out some winding on the runway. I was even dared to do it. There was so much positive energy in the crowd you couldn't help but smile and get into it.

Of course many women and gay men in the audience were drooling over the models. There was a collective yell when one model strutted out topless. After the fact I was reading Derick Chetty's tweets about the show and he mentioned a woman that had gotten on the ground to take pictures when the topless model came out. She was singing along too. I wish I got to see that.

The clothing wasn't your typical North American suits; it definitely had an island flavour with the bright colour combinations. More men should wear purple. One model walked down the runway with a veil over his head. After seeing this done to women so many times before in shows (Hello Margiela) I was glad to see the tables turned. There were a lot of three piece suits and some casual wear. There were one sided and bolero style jackets that were fashion forward but a little gimmicky. I also felt the pant lengths were a little on the short side.
