Darcel M. de Vlugt is without a doubt among the most talented of designers I consider the new guard. Elegance is never compromised. Precision is always embraced. In short, a Van der Vlugt design is among the very best the fashion industry offers today. Consider this fabulous black dress, worn by Trinidadian fashion model Arveyann Thomas, as symbol of that excellence. Photos by David E. Fraser. © 2013 All Rights Reserved.
