Jamaican-born New York designer Glenroy March's "House of D’Marsh" unveiled its Fall 2018 collection during NY Fashion Week.
The all-white Fall 2018 collection was inspired by his visit to China. “During my visit to China last year for my first show, I saw the swans for which I have an affinity. It was then that I received my inspiration to put together this year’s collection. I was moved by the grace and elegance of the long-necked birds and the manner in which they greeted each other and wanted to capture that along with the beauty of their feathers,” said March.
Jamaican-born attorney Renatha Francis is formally sworn in as Miami-Dade County Court Judge. In August 2017, Governor Rick Scott announced her appointment to the Miami-Dade County Court.
Francis previously served in multiple positions with the First District Court Appeal, including as an attorney to Judge Scott Makar, staff attorney, and law clerk to Judge Peter Webster.
She grew up in Jamaica and is a past student of Bridgeport Primary School and St. Hugh’s High for Girls. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of the West Indies and her law degree from Florida Coastal School of Law.
Francis joins Judge Tanya Brinkley and Judge Teretha Lundy to make up the only three black women of the 123 judges currently serving Miami-Dade County.
