Jenny Blanc Barbados
Jenny Blanc, in fabulous sapphire silk, welcomed over 100 guests to the new showroom in St James, Barbados, on one of the best tropical evenings of the season- balmy and with a slight breeze.

Guests included Barbadian dignitaries,valued clients, Barbadian friends and partners the company has built up over the years and some of the most influential business people on the island.

Jenny is overwhelmed by the comments and reaction she is receiving with everyone on the island wishing the company all the very best for an exciting future in Barbados.
