“We are happy to say that over the years, we have made major improvements within the fashion and creative industry in the Cayman Islands and have really brought to life an area of the economy that no one really paid attention to or understood its impact on the economy. I can safely say that I think quite a few important persons still have not grasped its importance. We’ve seen local designers rise to prominence, launch their brands, seen them go international, sent them off to school; created a platform for our local models to be exposed to the international world of Modeling. We’ve seen stores open with Kacie Fenellconfidence, sales in stores have grown exponentially, businesses such as Stylists and Makeup Artists have come of importance, the interest in fashion journalism and video and photography is on the rise; and here, you have such young talent feeling confident enough to launch into a design career at such tender ages. Despite the trials, we are indeed extremely proud of what has been created through the CIFW platform.” Cindy Rosan-Jones.

She went on to say: “Cayman Islands Fashion Week is the top, unrivaled fashion event in the Caribbean and Miami regions. The attraction and interest in the event is year round and continues to attract some of the best in the industry from fashion insiders to designers, media and bloggers. We look forward to presenting the 2016 Edition of Cayman Islands Fashion Week”
