Islands of the World Fashion Week to debut in November

26
Mar '08
The fashion world is buzzing about “Islands of the World Fashion Week” (IWFW) to take place in Nassau, The Bahamas, November 5-8, 2008, set to showcase well-known and new designers from islands around the world and to promote cultural diversity and creativity.

The producer of IWFW is Mode Iles Ltd, an affiliate of The Montaque Group, a diversified financial services operation with interest in film finance and production. Inaugural IWFW venues will include the British Colonial Hilton in Nassau and the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, The Bahamas.

“This event was not conceived to be just another fashion week,” explained Owen Bethel, President and Managing Director of The Montaque Group as well as Founder of IWFW. “While certainly providing a showcase for eligible designers originating from developing islands similar to the typical fashion week, the mere fact that this event specifically focuses on designers from islands in itself makes it a unique event.

Islands conjure up images of a unique lifestyle, both exotic and colorful. Further, this event is not simply a commercial venture, as it concurrently aims to draw attention to several global issues which also significantly affect island states.”

A potential boon for The Bahamas, their Ministry of Tourism is anticipated to play a pivotal role in both the promotion and execution of the Islands of the World Fashion Week. They will also provide support for the visiting dignitaries, VIP's, and media stated Bethel. Celebrities will be in the know soon, as invitations are on the way to major stars including Oprah Winfrey, P Diddy, Jennifer Lopez, Stacey London, Tyra Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles, Tim Gunn, and others, and of course, to the designers!

On board as IWFW executive producer is Tomas Frenes, a Miami resident who served as Deputy Director for the Americas of the vast Versace fashion empire up to the time of the famed designer's tragic death. Frenes is also the Executive Vice President of Mode Iles Ltd.
