Our Essence: Fashion Showcase


The Caribbean has long been recognized as a region bustling with great creativity, fuelled in grand measure by its ethnic and cultural diversity. While representation of Caribbean popular culture has entered the international mainstream (carnival, music, cuisine, art, etc.), other lesser-known cultural elements remain relatively neglected or underdeveloped. The fashion industry in the Caribbean is one example.

Caribbean Export’s staging of the Fashion Showcase within its London Engage initiative is to help expose the amazing possibilities this emerging sector holds to a captive audience of buyers, journalists, enthusiasts, and potential investors.

The showcase will be a representation of the best of Caribbean Fashion Week and will combine multimedia presentations intermixed with a live fashion experience. UK/Caribbean models will strut the creative designs of Caribbean designers in a specially constructed environment at Grosvenor House, London on August 4th. The showcase will launch Caribbean Export’s range of specially developed activities at the Grosvenor House in association with the African Caribbean Business Expo.
