Saint International’s honcho, Deiwght Peters, is promising a "fresh and new" Style Week slated for May 25-29 in the Corporate Area.

"Style Week Jamaica is the premier fashion platform in Jamaica. The event is the key in showcasing Jamaica’s new and established designers. In addition to Jamaica, designer collections from The Bahamas, Guadeloupe, and beyond will take the runway. This year, a larger than ever contingent of fashion media will be heading in for the event," the model agency’s CEO and Style Week conceptualiser told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

"We see the event as a prime step in establishing global connections to ultimately be a part of the local fashion infrastructure, which will be strategic to get the brand Jamaica rightfully placed in the international fashion arena," he continued.

"Leading agents from Paris and Milan have also booked their trip to Jamaica hoping to be the first to discover Saint’s next superstar," he said.

Style Week’s signature events International Mecca of Style and Fashion Block are scheduled for May 28 and 29, respectively.

"Fashion Block is a success story on its own. It is the Caribbean’s biggest live fashion event. This signature event has captured the imagination of the world. The energy and glitz igniting the centre of the country’s capital will be staged on Sunday, May 29, on Knutsford Boulevard. ‘The grand spectacle that is Fashion Block has impressed the world’s fashion media," he added.
