The Style Issue, September 21, 2023

If there's one thing for sure, neutrals are going to trend. And so they did at the Jamaican premiere screening of the series

As the series stars and fans gathered to celebrate the debut of the urban drama, based on the autobiographical novel Yardie by Jamaican immigrant David G Heron, the fashion choices mirrored the show's fusion of grit and urban allure.

Naturally, the event kicked off with a cocktail and red-carpet reception, while attendees mingled and showcased their style.
