The TJE begins today in Speyside.
Leve will be held on Friday from 4 pm to 7 pm at Villa Being in Arnos Vale, Tobago.
Leve is the patois word for “stand up” or “lift up.” The event is aiming to promote and feature “the best that TT has to offer.” Villa Being, which was hailed by Forbes as “the most fabulous vacation villa in Tobago”, will provide the backdrop of style, elegance, romance, nature and sensuality to display the work of Pegus, one of TT the most lauded fashion designers and that of internationally- famed artist Leroy Clarke who will put on an exclusive showing of his works.
This event will portray a cluster of exceptional brands in fine art, fashion, cuisine, culture, rum and rhythm, said a media release.
Villa Being, situated on an 11-acre organic fruit estate, would be transformed by designer Brian MacFarlane into a canvas showcasing Caribbean luxury brands and lifestyle at its best, the release said.
Chef extraordinaire Deborah Sardinah Metivier will tantalise the taste buds of guests with her version of Tobago cuisine.
Metivier brings a Caribbean flair, creativity,passion and flavour to all of her culinary creations.
The event caters to a select list of Pegus’ and Poon’s VIP clients, along with members of the diplomatic corps, local and international celebrities.
Leve is being touted as a collaborative venture that harnesses “our iconic gems — products, people, brands, services and location under one roof in an effort to boost the Tobago Jazz Experience and showcase Tobago as a five-star experience.
It also hopes to create avenues for local, regional and international press coverage and awareness of Tobago culture and cuisine in a luxurious and high-end setting as well as attract trade linkages at all levels of the tourism and creative industries.
