Founded in September 2011, KingstonBelle.com is a culture and society website based in the West Indies. The five year old brand was founded by editor at large Rashade St Patrick who coined the slogan ‘Flirt With Adventure’. Kingston Belle is the premier publishing arm of the Kingston Belle Collective Creative Agency that fosters Jamaica’s foremost digital contemporary editorial talent. KB showcases the West Indies best with a distinct POV likened by the world’s most sophisticated adventurers. With influences stretching from all parts of the World, Kingston Belle has managed to assemble a solid collection of stories with a great birdseyeview of West Indian life over the past 5 years. Among other accolades Kingston Belle has been featured on Vogue.it and has remained the longest consistent digital publishing brand in Jamaica, attracting over three thousand views everyday.
Rashade St Patrick is a 23 year old lifestyle entrepreneur and digital don boasting 5 solid years in fashion, technology and Public Relations. With a strong writing background and experience in fashion, music and art, St Patrick’s curation of KingstonBelle.com makes it the Caribbean’s foremost specialty website and digital destination for literature, art and commerce.
In 2014 St Patrick steered the digital brand offline with specialty event; Kingston Belle Boozy Brunch. Heralded for its swanky downtown location and international vibe, the Kingston Belle Boozy Brunch was formerly held every last Sunday of each month and hosted Jamaica’s elite social influencers and artists. In its short existence Kingston Belle Boozy Brunch has partnered with the likes of KERRY manwomanhome, Swiss Stores and Toyota. The event now remains as highly anticipated as ever with the new module of spontaneity in when and where.
