Last month I had the privilege of attending the 2011 Caribbean International Fashion Week (CIFW) in NYC. The event featured an array of premier designers, who all hail from various Caribbean islands. The CIFW show raised scholarship funds for the CTO foundation to assist Caribbean nationals who aspire to engage in philanthropic projects. The amazing event brought admiration, and appreciation for Caribbean beauty, culture, and of course, fashion! I truly had a fabulous night and can’t wait to attend next year’s showcase.
Here are some pictures of the outfit that I wore to this red carpet event, as well as a few pictures of the featured designers (pictures by Champion Eye Media) . Enjoy !!!
