Designer

The company’s name was derived from two (2) words: ‘honourable’ and ‘dynamic’, which were constantly being mentioned in an idle e-mail conversation in 2006 between ‘brothers’ Rhian Ramkissoon and Simon Ramphalie centred around their ability to either get involved in an existing business venture or to create their own business which can be done simultaneously in Trinidad and Canada. Many ideas were being tossed around and both men commented on how difficult it was to find unique clothing…and like a bolt of lightning, they both agreed that Honamic would be a clothing design company…and so Honamic Designs was born. With the goal of producing high quality affordable clothing, the immediate reality of this grand idea was shelved due to start-up costs and lack of experience and expertise. The decision to influence the local market with unique clothing was now the focus. With Simon’s personal responsibilities taking priority, Rhian was given the blessing to continue the mission, and after two (2) years of research, development and careful selection, Honamic Designs opened its doors to the public in December of 2008. The company achieved its goal of offering clientele one-of-a-kind apparel. This concept was well received and the company established a loyal clientele, with specific requests being made, and as a result, the company began offering personalized shopping services. These services have now expanded to include styling bridal parties, models and various groups for photography session and events. In 2011, after numerous requests, the company took the bull by the horns, and on a very limited basis, began producing original clothing. The process is one which involves the client in every aspect of the process, from style design and fabric selection to final fitting and styling. The company had the opportunity to design and produce official uniforms for a financial institution’s sports team participating in a regional event. In November 2013, as the company approached its 5th anniversary, Honamic Designs took another step forward and officially ventured into the local fashion arena by producing and showcasing its 1st Collection entitled ‘Callaloo’ at a charity event of the same name. Since the launch, the company has been approached by persons and organizations to design and produce clothing for various events. The year 2014 saw the company taking another bold step into the fashion industry by previewing its first full menswear summer/resort collection at the Tobago Fashion Weekend 2014 – SPD REDEFINED, as well as producing original collections for two (2) segments of the grand finale of the Face of T&T competition. In 2015, the company continued to grow with changes to its structure which saw Rhian leaving the corporate world after eighteen (18) years to continue the development and expansion of the company. Caribbean in aesthetic, yet universal in appeal, Honamic Designs creates high quality affordable clothing using only the highest grade fabrics available from around the world. With the brand continuously evolving with unique fabrics and innovative designs, men and women can experience our world of colour and prints that have been creating the honourable and dynamic looks we have become known for.
