THE TRI COLLECTION

The TRI COLLECTION is a clothing brand and the brain-child of Katrina Brathwaite a student of the London College of Fashion. The college's mission is, "fashion the future". and the 26 year old is certainly doing that.


The name "TRI" is three-fold in origin: 

  1. (1) "TRI" is the shortened version of her name as first bestowed by her friend Damien Reveira at Harrison Collegemost people called her "Kat" for short and he wanted to stand-out from the rest of the pack so called her "Tri"; 
  2. (2) "TRI" (pronounced "tree") is how the fashion designer sees herself; as a symbol of strength with roots that run deep- inspiring others while remaining grounded no matter what life throws her way. 
  3. (3) "TRI" is how bajans (what Barbadians call themselves) pronounce the number three- three biblically is seen as the number of completion, perfection and balance.
Katrina describes herself as, "a proud bajan woman" and draws her inspiration from admiration of the female form; TRI COLLECTION is for confident women only and the designer wants every woman to celebrate her inner Goddess with every stride.
