A steam iron and three portable racks were donated to the Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute's fashion department Friday, May 8th, 2009, by representatives of Mode Iles Ltd as tokens of appreciation for their participation at Islands of the World Fashion Week last November.

Presenting on behalf of the company was Arianne Etuk, Chief Operations Officer and Brynda Knowles, Senior Fashion Consultant.

"We would like to thank BTVI and the rest of the Islands of the World Fashion Week team for their dedicated support and hard work during the launch last November," said Etuk as she also credited the school's participation for the company's recent success of winning the award for 'Best Fashion Show or Fashion Week attended' category at the 2nd Annual Caribbean Fashion Awards (CFA) held at the Hilton Hotel in Bridgetown, Barbados, on April 11th 2009.

"We know that without BTVI, it would not have been possible," she said. "We do appreciate it and we do look forward to working with you in the future."

The school had 14 students take part as volunteers at IWFW 2008 serving in several capacities from pressing garments to sewing to dressing models for the runway.

Receiving the gifts on behalf of BTVI were Dr. Iva Dahl, Manager/IDB Consultant (BTVI), and Ms. Shirley Pearson, Coordinator of Fashion, Trade and Souvenir manufacturing (BTVI)."We are very grateful for the gifts and we will gladly help out at this year's event," said Ms. Pearson. "It was a lot of fun and I hope when we put on our fashion show you will be there to support us."

The school's showcase will be held on June 14th at 4 p.m. at the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino. Islands of the World Fashion Week is scheduled to take place November 4th to 8th.
