    News in the NYTimes today http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/11/st...ashion.html?hp pointing to the demise of high fashion industry cites the DRs most famous designer as outsourcing to Asia, etc.... It is a wonder that there is no pressure-courtship to lure him back to his home country, label his clothes, fair traded..... with Dominican labor.... WHAT an opportunity..

    Interesting article Annie and what a great point you make! One day my wife and I sat outside Hemmingways in Playa Dorada and we were discussing this subject. My wife said "what's the name of the famous Dominican Designer"? I paused and said "is it Ron Brugal"? she nearly choked on her Coke and then called me a phillistine!

    It's very common; Ron Brugal, Ron Bacardi, Ron Barcelo, Ron Bermudez. Do you have to be called Ron to make rum? LOL

    Appologies to mountainannie, her post is a really good one (as usual) and I'm afraid Black Dog's friday afternoon fever has hijacked it! Truely sorry Annie!

    sorry for the highjacking Lizi,
    but i was darn sure the top designer's first name is Ron.
    those designs seen in the mirror after 'designing' are really uniques, ha ha.
