Jamaica Style Week 2007

Style Week is one of Jamaica's most significant fashion events, with visitors from all over the globe coming to see the shows and view the trends. It also marks the scouting and placement of Jamaica's models to lucrative jobs around the world, with many local models walking the catwalk in an effort to get noticed. Entertainment wise, Style Week brings a touch of glamour and fashion chic to the streets of Kingston, well known for its relaxed vibe and good food. The 2007 edition of Style Week will take place in Jamaica from May 23rd to 27th and will, according to CEO Dewight Peters, maintain its strategic international edge with designer participation from across the world.

This year, Style Week will feature a stronger international cast, including designers from London, Paris, United States, Italy, Latin America, the English-speaking Caribbean, and Guadeloupe. British-based celebrity hairstylist Desmond Murray returns in that capacity with international stylists such as Tyron Mayes. "The fact that world-class facilitators from institutions such as Parsons School of Design are here to interact directly and impart crucial knowledge to our industry players (designers) is a very important objective met at SWJ. Last year, the international fashion industry took note when Saint International managed a coup by getting two senior members from the faculty of the internationally renowned Parson's New School of Design to facilitate seminars with our local designers. "This shows how committed Saint International is to developing the local fashion industry. Last year's show featured international collections from Paris' Gaspard Yurkievich, New York's Abaete, South Africa's Sister Bucks and Guadeloupe's Elliette Le Superbe. Style Week Jamaica showcase three days of runway shows including The Resort and Leisurewear Collections (May 24th), The International Mecca Of Style (May 26th) and the international phenomenon - Fashionblock (May 27th). source: Technorati Cosmos: related links
