Small But We Tallawah: Sammy B S/S 2022
​ ​ ​
This Season SammyB focuses on the designer’s Jamaican background and what it is to be a Jamaican American in New York. Pride for both is so strong and for many like her intertwined. ​ This will be a Mash-Up of styles directly from a NYC Jamaican, a bit of city edge mixed with colorful Island spice. ​ This collection began when Samantha visited Jamaica just as the country started letting travelers in from abroad, in the parish of Portland the birthplace of her great grandmother, she was able to relax and started designing pieces that a West Indian Gyal would like, sexy, easy, daring and free, ….. then combining that with what a New Yorker would wear and showing what happens when you start to merge the two!…. This is the beginning of a continuous love story to my culture and where I live.
