Marie Collette, a label that produces resort wear and “Monday Wear” designs for Trinidad & Tobago Carnival, has been a favorite in Trinidad and the wider Caribbean since its debut. Known for its bold prints, unusual silhouettes and cut-outs, it’s one of the most sought-after Monday Wear designs, as costumers clamor over the one-of-a-kind pieces each carnival season.
