Caribbean Design, According to Meiling
31/07/2015
Caribbean Design, According to MeilingMeiling Esau can lay claim to being one of the very few people in the Caribbean widely known only by her first name. She is the force behind one of the most renowned fashion houses in Trinidad as well as in the entire Caribbean. With a long and distinguished career, some of Meiling's achievements include designing the uniforms for the Trinidad and Tobago team at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games opening ceremony, being honored by Absolut Vodka with a martini named after her, and receiving the Women of Influence Award from the The Association of Female Executives of Trinidad & Tobago in 2010. To this day, Meiling has dressed the likes of Miss Universe 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam and celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, as well as with Emmy Award-winning costume designer Peter Minshall on carnival productions. In 2013, she was even recognized by the government of Trinidad and Tobago as a national icon. CULTURE+TRAVEL caught up with the fashion design icon to hear more on what the Caribbean aesthetic entails. On the Caribbean style... Because of where we are on the equator, the light is different. The colors look different. We have a lot more natural light than artificial light. The color palette is more vibrant. Our whole history informs our architecture, our cuisine, our festivals, our way of life. The history of all the different cultures – the mixture, all of the ethnic groups – informs everything we made. You can go from island to island and find things that are totally different. I don’t know that there is a single Caribbean aesthetic: every island is unique. Why try to put us all in one box? And it is all so organic... Every island has its own spirit, its own texture: what you find in Jamaica, you won’t find in Trinidad. Trinidad is a melting pot. We are one of the richest because we have had such diversity here on this island. On the aesthetics of her hometown, Port of Spain... I like walking around the city of Port of Spain [the capital of Trinidad and Tobago], where I live, and take regular walks around the Queen’s Park Savannah. There is an energy about the Savannah. It is the world’s largest roundabout, it is the Big Yard – the place where traditionally all the major competitions were held in the days before and of the annual Carnival. The Savannah has gone through so many changes and it is beautiful. You see the change in season and you see families grow, the coconut vendors, snow cone vendors, and life rushing by anyway... There is an abundance here. When I am away, I miss the sound of Trinidad and the people. It is a noisy place. In spite of the craziness, the spirit of the city always transcends. I miss my house. My home. My neighbourhood. My city. And I love the smell of the earth after rain. I love the warmth of the breeze. The hills, the hills can take on all these different colours as the light changes when the sun travels across the sky." Even the craziness of the noise, the mismatch of people, the fine architecture dressed with an old piece of galvanized iron – is all so beautiful. On local architecture... Gingerbread houses are an architectural style that originated in Haiti in the late 19th century, marked by vibrant patterns and colours, high ceilings. These were houses designed with Caribbean living in mind. Made mostly of wood, they can still weather the toughest storms. These gingerbread houses are dynamic spaces because of their history, their color, their place in the geography. I have based a few of my collections on the architecture of Trinidad, like George Brown for example. I live in a gingerbread house that sits in the middle of the city. I like the quiet of my garden, which – just like everything else in Trinidad – is juxtaposed by its close proximity to the most lively avenue in Woodbrook – Ariapita Avenue. The avenue has changed so much with a plethora of restaurants and clubs and bars and street food. Even the Carnival Parade goes through the neighborhood – a few feet from the front door, I can see all the band. On the best souvenirs... The Shop – A platform for all local at the Normandie, in St Ann’s, which represents a wide variety of brilliant artisans. It stands out as one of the few places where one can find quality gifts and souvenirs but also unique, organic fantastic personal care items, jewellery and accessories. Amazing local chocolates, jams and jellies. On local design... I think contemporary design is now coming onto its own. I think the Caribbean has always been seen as a resort and fine art hasn’t been seen to come from these spaces. Port of Spain has always been seen as a city, rather than as a resort. We have more than just sun and sand and beaches – we have the film festivals, art galleries... People are continually probing at the boundaries of what has become expected and accepted as “Caribbean design”. There are old masters like Michel-Jean Cazabon and Jackie Hinkson who tell our history. I like the work Che Lovelace has developed around with carnival. Some of these emerging artists have a more contemporary approach, so you can’t put a Caribbean stamp on them. On the influence of the Caribbean... I am a designer living in the Caribbean and the Caribbean informs my work, but it isn’t my whole story... From time to time, some aspect of music or culture inspires my work but it isn’t all there is to the things I am stimulated by. Carnival, Orisha festivals, the Temple by the Sea... (it) all informs who I am. We adapt. My mother was part Scottish, my father was part Amerindian. Everything is mixed up. Trinidadians are never in awe of anyone, we don’t fall over ourselves to adore. Now, in Trinidad, there are more and more public art/ graffiti installations. I am working on a collection of scarves informed by that. On a book to read before visiting the Caribbean... Miguel Street by V.S. Naipaul. You can see Meiling's designs on meilinginc.com or follow her on Instagram at Meilinginc. Also see the slideshow for more.
