Fashion Week Trinidad & Tobago tops Caribbean record

May '10
In its highly-anticipated third annual installment, Fashion Week Trinidad & Tobago (FWTT) will feature the largest number of designers in its history with 50 designers. The event launches in Tobago on May 29-31 and moves to Trinidad for June 2-6.

In the impressive line-up, 40 designers hail from Trinidad & Tobago and 10 from other Caribbean nations.

“Forty is the highest number of local designers featured in their own country of any Caribbean fashion event,” said Richard Young, Fashion Week Trinidad & Tobago Artistic Director. “We were flooded with requests and interest not only locally but regionally, so we were able to select an electic mix to reach a wider cross section of fashion to meet buying tastes.”

Fashion Week Trinidad & Tobago will present the exciting melange of fashion in seven total runway shows – two in Tobago and five in Trinidad. Each runway show will be a unique display of designers' creations fitting into five branded categories: Caribbean Cutting Edge, Cosquelle Swimwear, Nouveau Caribbean, New World Style, and Haute Caribbean.

In response to the larger-than-ever interest from designers and incredible public demand, Fashion Week Trinidad & Tobago added an eighth day to its annual sell-out event. The event launches in Tobago from May 29-31, 2010 and moves to Trinidad from June 2-6, 2010.

Since its inception in 2008, Fashion Week Trinidad and Tobago tickets have been the hottest tickets on island and sold out weeks before the shows. Tickets for the 2010 shows are available for sale and style-conscious and fashion enthusiasts are encouraged to get their tickets early.
