San Fernando Fashion Week Update

With the excitement just a few days away San Fernando is fever-pitched and ready for Fashion Week (San Fernando‘s 6th Edition – Passion for Fashion).  The city of San Fernando is rolling out its red carpet to welcome established T&T fashion icons, along with young emerging designers to climax over a three-day period: 24th – 26th June, 2011.

Fashion lovers and patrons will have the opportunity for the first time to witness designer Meiling’s new collection Grand Rivère – first time showing anywhere in Trinidad & Tobago.  This will continue with further seasoned professionals such as Heather Jones, Peter Elias, Saleem Samuel, Anya Ayoung Chee, Rodney Alexander, the Caribbean Academy of Fashion and Design, Deron Attzs Designs and Designer Look.   We will also take a journey to our sister isle Tobago, showcasing some of its top designers. The journey continues to South America – Canada for Passion Fruit Designs to Guyana for Miracle Hands, Haiti for David Andre, and also to the Bahamas with designer David Rolle.

San Fernando Fashion Week will also welcome internationally acclaimed fashion photographer, Mr. Donn Thompson, who has worked for Essence Upscale, Vogue, Black Enterprise, Jet, Sister to Sister, Profiles 98 and many others.  Through San Fernando Fashion Week we will offer a screening and casting in the upcoming days for the next face and cover of their magazine.  One model selected thus far is the Face Model of San Fernando Fashion Week, Ms. Liselle Peters, who has held this title for two consecutive years.  This screening will be opened to both male and female candidates, as Mr. Thompson aims to present a balanced Caribbean aesthetic of our multicultural and multi-faceted islands of Trinidad and Tobago.

At our talk shop/workshop on 25th June 2011 at the Royalty Plaza (Coffee Street, San Fernando) from 7pm to 9pm, all cutters, stitchers, jewelry makers, craftsmen and media will have the opportunity to meet and interact with some of our foreign designers, retailers and distributors, and will be privy to a mini viewing of their collections.

On 26th June 2011, the red carpet rolls out from 6pm for the gala runway show Passion for Fashion at Paria Suites and Conference Centre (La Romain, San Fernando).
