And I quote…
Several of the Caribbean’s master designers have already confirmed their attendance at Caribbean Fashionweek from June 8-13.
In addition to the best designers the Caribbean has to offer, CFW boasts recognisable faces in world modelling, plus top stylists from Europe, North America, Africa, Latin America and Asia. This year the event will amp up its recent trend as a growing entertainment event on a broader scale. Whereas in the past CFW has attracted major international celebrities and featured short concert performances by such superstars as Eve, Kelly Roland and Nia Long, this year’s event will showcase full concerts after the fashion shows, featuring major international and Jamaican acts.
Such Caribbean icons as Meiling and Biggy are committed to the event in June. Other confirmed master designers include British-Jamaican fashion designer Sandra Kennedy, Trinidad’s acclaimed Claudia Pegus, Jamaica’s Barry Moncrieffe and Mutamba plus Vogue stylist Gavin Douglas. Others will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.
In addition to the Caribbean’s top couturiers, major designers will also come from Italy, Switzerland, France, Suriname, Canada, South America and the United States.
Excited yet? Yah girl Irie will be live tweeting, live blogging, live twitpicing (or rather yfrogging) and maybe even ustreaming from the event, so make sure you’re following me across all these platforms for all updates. Meanwhile, sure I’m excited about all the designers and models so far confirmed, but what about the entertainers? Buss we nuh! The people wanna know!
