CAYMAN ISLANDS FASHION WEEkCayman Islands Fashion Week, April 25-27, serves as a platform for showcasing international, Caymanian and Caribbean trend setting fashion designers. It also features models from some of the world’s top agencies including Ford, Major, DNA, RED, Muse, Next, IMG and Elite. Sessilee Lopez, Georgie Badiel, Kacie Schaffer and Bobby Roache are amongst the diverse selection of top models that have strutted our runways.

The inaugural event was hosted by Selita Ebanks and this year Eva Marcille will take over the job.
