2022 started on a good note. I am super proud and excited to see so many Haitians contributing their talent to the Fashion Industry. We are gifted (from our ancestors) in arts and creativity; therefore, it is refreshing to witness global recognition.
Today, we are a few and more, so I am selecting a handful of Haitians whose work has put La Perle Des Antilles on the map and opened more positive discussions of the importance of black and POC in the industry.

The perfect duo, my fondness for the brand is Primarily two Haitian women are consolidating their talent to create a solid and quality Fashion powerhouse brand which is a significant signal of women empowerment and, most importantly, Haitian women’s togetherness positively. And of course, I love the brand from the signature plissage technic, modern cuts out, and bold colors, the spring/summer collection is to die for, and I know this is even their best yet.
Kerby Jean- Raymond Pyermoss
Jovana Louis is revolutionizing the suit in a powerful and feminine way; her brand is coveted in grandeur and chic aesthetics that only Haitian women have the secret sauce to. I am not bragging it is authentic “Haitian chic” is a mood, and luckily, for everyone, it is teachable. I am
excited about her evolution in the Fashion Industry and can’t wait for what she has in store for us.
Kerby embodies I am all in for my community; I remember one episode of a Fashion TV show. He denied sending home a talented black woman designer because she didn’t finish the challenge. I have respected him from that day. You don’t turn down your own. His collection speaks volumes, and I know that the sky is the limit for Pyermoss imprint on the industry with his determination.
