As we gear up for the Jamaica 60 festivities, which include the return of the Emancipation float today and the popular Grand Gala on Saturday, local brand By The Cabana has a collection to help you celebrate in style. If you've been paying attention, you're probably aware that Brand Jamaica is hardwired into the ethos of the clothing brand, with pieces designed, cut and sewn right here on The Rock.

Principal Tyana Harriott, however, has upped the ante for "Emancipendence" with "This is Jamaica 60" - a black, green and gold-infused capsule collection that includes updates to staple styles, new designs and crochet pieces from artisans at the Kingston Craft Market.

"As a Jamaican luxury brand punching above our weight much like our beautiful country at 60, we identify with the indomitable phrase 'wi likkle but we tallawah'," she said.
