Tweet Well-known Jamaican fashion designer, stylist and digital influencer Dexter '3D' Pottinger was found dead at his Yarico Place home in St Andrew yesterday evening. People at the scene said his body was decomposing and had stab wounds. The Jamaica Observer was also told that the body was discovered by friends who had gone to visit Pottinger and were alerted by a foul smell coming from the house.
The police were called and arrived at approximately 6: Family and friends of the make-up artist and former model were overheard saying that his car and two iPhone 7s were missing from the house. Neighbours reportedly heard Pottinger crying for help early Tuesday morning but no one alerted the police.
Pottinger was the point man for iconic Jamaican corporate brands to outfit their promotional models and the image resource for international publications and celebrities. He is a former Saint International model who was set to showcase his latest menswear collection at the Fashion Directory, hosted annually by Yellow Pages, on October 5 at Devon House.
Last night, Saint International boss Deiwght Peters, who gave Pottinger his start in the fashion industry, reacted with shock at Pottinger's passing.
Peters told the Observer that he first became aware of the death late yesterday evening while on his way home from work. I just could not believe. I kept asking 'What are you talking about? I know he should have been on holiday overseas, so I kept asking 'are you sure?
This is so sad Peters recalled first meeting Pottinger 15 years ago in the lobby of the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel and encouraging him to be part of his burgeoning agency.
He was there with Althea Laing and my assistant scout and I approached him. It was during that stint in London that Pottinger became inspired to become a stylist, and with Peters's help he became an understudy to New York-based stylist Ty-Ron Mayes.
That experience would then pave the way for him to become a fashion designer. He entered our Avant Garde Designer of the Year competition and won. That wasand he never looked back. Ce'Cile, who was close to the late designer, could not be reached for comment.
However, she took to social media to express her sadness. You do not deserve this my friend. If only I knew People judge people and have no idea. The kind, caring, protective, wonderful soul that you were.
And people will see Grieving friends posted their condolences on Pottinger's Facebook page, some expressing disbelief while others told of his inspiring work. Rest In Peace my friend Dexter Pottinger.
