Fodor's Expert Review Dody

Pointe-a-Pitre Clothing

Across from the market, Dody is the place to go if you want white eyelet lace (blouses, skirts, dresses, even bustiers). A single item can cost up to €300. Madras clothing is both traditional and contemporary, and it looks especially cute in children's clothing. A line of colorful, Carnival-inspired, tropical dresses is a knockout. And for men there are creole suits and cool, madras shirts, and a line of Bebe Creole. Many styles have reduced prices, and there are special-occasion "costumes"—wedding, communion, and confirmation dresses all in white eyelet. Those who love designer ensembles based in Guadeloupean tradition can now shop online.
