To kick off its 20th anniversary, the Image Modelling Agency begins its year of fashion with premier event Fashion Caribbean. This year’s event will be the 11th installation and will again have local telecommunications company, Flow, as title sponsor.
“Image Modelling Agency and Flow have been partners for many years. Over the years we have watched the agency grow and maintain its legacy for producing quality models and the highly anticipated, regionally recognised Fashion Caribbean product. We were a sponsor of the very first Fashion Caribbean, which took place in 2001, so it was only fitting as Image Modeling Agency celebrates their 20th year in the business that Flow also supports and celebrates this proud achievement with them,” said Nikala Williams, marketing manager at Flow SVG.
Flow Fashion Caribbean 2017, which is being held in association with the Grenadine House, takes place on March 25 at the SVG Community College, which is now being referred to as the official home of Fashion Caribbean.
Executive member, Maxin Browne, who first suggested the venue last year, said, “We have finally found a location that meets all our requirements, including easy access, adequate parking and enough space to expand the show as the years progress and the audience increases.”
Flow Fashion Caribbean also receives support from the Grenadine House Hotel, SVG Tourism Authority, Invest SVG, Bank of St. Vincent, Fitness Lab, Vitamalt, Max Digital Dark Room, Oasis Spa and from Corea’s Distribution Ltd and their Bailey’s & Johnny Walker Black brands.
Corea’s Distribution Ltd., a main sponsor of the event, has been a part of Fashion Caribbean every year since the show’s inception in 2001.
“We can never express our gratitude enough to Corea’s especially to Mr. Teddy James and Mr. Noel Browne who always champion our cause which has ultimately resulted in the development of Fashion Caribbean into the event that it is today” said managing director, Monique Arthur.
This year’s show has over 15 confirmed designers representing Trinidad, Antigua, BVI and host country St. Vincent and the Grenadines. It will also see the debut of six new designers who will make up the Fresh Face Emerging Designers Segment of the 2017 show.
