Cayman Islands Fashion Week 2013

The long awaited Cayman Islands Fashion Week 2013 kicked off in fine style on Thursday, 25 April 2013, with a Culture & Style Meet and Greet at the Cayman Cabana. International and local models and designers met, mingled and danced the night away at the new resto-bar.

Friday night's roads led to the new West Indies Wine Company at Camana Bay where ladies dressed in their best for the My Style Soiree and sipped on complimentary wine. The gents were also welcomed with fine rum.

These two events, although fabulous in their own way, could not compare to what was expected for Saturday night's Fashion Gala. The Fashion Gala was expected to be a phenomenal one with international models such as Grace Bol, Jaslene Gonzalez, host Eva Marcille and many others.

A mini cocktail reception kicked off the evening in the night air that was filled with glitter, sequins, feathers and all things fashionable.
Although the Cayman Islands Fashion Week is still in its infancy stage, the producers strive to make the event the number one fashion and lifestyle destination event in the Caribbean while ensuring the Cayman Islands takes its place as the number one cosmopolitan getaway destination in the region.
