Just in time for those holiday looks, several of the most exciting established and emerging fashion designers will descend upon Cayman in November for Allure Cayman Fashion Weekend. A Caribbean style experience and fashion show that is billed to change the face of fashion events in the Cayman Islands.
Allure Cayman is spearheaded by Pearlina McGaw Lumsden. Pearlina is best known for her recent foray into fashion as the face and Executive Producer of Beyond The Red Carpet, the fashion commentary program aired on Cayman 27. Pearlina is a well known Caymanian business woman, philanthropist and style enthusiast.
The fashion show will feature resort and swimwear, ideal for the Cayman buyer and, according to Pearlina, the idea is for the event to also draw international fashion consumers, designers and bloggers. The fashion show will also showcase chic designs and couture bridal wear.
“While we are totally focused on providing a leading edge fashion experience to our beloved Caymanians, we know the long term benefits of holding a fashion event lay in the tourism and economic boost it can give the Cayman Islands.”
Adding to this “boost” will be the international superstar guest host, Tyson Beckford. Hosting the show alongside Tyson will be Cayman’s own, Monica Walton.
“Let’s just say the ladies will be very pleased with their entertainment for the night and with the caliber of hosting,” she stated.
“Our mission at Allure Cayman is to celebrate, showcase and inspire international and local style minds, whilst highlighting Cayman as an emerging fashion capital,” she stated. “This is not going to happen overnight, however we want our sponsors and our Caymanian people to know that this event is about more than beautiful clothes and impeccable designs. Allure Cayman is about changing the landscape of fashion in the Caribbean.”
Locally known designers and fashion personalities Isy B Designs and Olivia B. will be showcasing their designs at Allure runway show. Isy B made her debut recently showing her own brand of luxeresort wear. Olivia B. who is a newcomer on the scene will showcase her Parisian themed line. Our two local stars are joined by international and well recognized designers BCBG, Yumi Katsura, Kristin Frazer of Trefle Swimwear, and Carlton Jones Collections.
