Caribbean Fashion Rocks NY

Caribbean Fashion Rocks!, New York's signature runway for island designers and models, will be rocked this spring by three of the world's foremost Caribbean-born fashion models-Jaunel McKenzie, Carla Campbell, and Oraine Barrett. All hailing from the famed Pulse Model Agency in Jamaica, the super models, along with Pulse Chairman and CEO, fashion industry luminary Kingsley Cooper, will be guests of honor at Fashion Rocks' 3rd annual staging at LQ New York in New York City on Sunday, April 25th. Since its inception in 2007, Caribbean Fashion Rocks! has provided a unique platform for Caribbean designers and models to penetrate New York's renowned fashion industry. For the 2010 staging, Fashion Rocks will turn its focus to the region's burgeoning modeling industry, honoring Cooper for his pioneering role in developing an international modeling industry in the Caribbean, and producing the fashion industry's groundbreaking Caribbean supermodels. "When most people think of fashion capitals, they think Paris, Milan, or New York City - not the Caribbean," states Robert Clarke, CEO of Irie Jam Media Group, New York's leading outlet for everything Caribbean, producers of Caribbean Fashion Rocks! "The Caribbean region has produced some of the world's greatest supermodels - Jaunel, Carla, Oraine, Tyson-even Naomi Campbell has Caribbean roots. It is an honor to have Jaunel, Carla, and Oraine walk the Fashion Rocks runway. And an honor to recognize Kingsley Cooper and Pulse, they represent the best of the best in the Caribbean fashion industry, and demonstrate how influential our industry is globally." McKenzie, Campbell, and Barrett will be joining some of New York's prominent and upcoming models on the Caribbean Fashion Rocks! runway this April, wearing designs from local fashion lines including Michael Gillings, Jewel Shannon, Kay Dane, Rep JA, and Royal Rush, among others.

Bruk Pocket Jamaican

"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"
