Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands – Saint George Fashion House marks its one-year anniversary this June with a resort collection to be featured at Caribbean Fashion Week in Kingston, Jamaica.
Kazz Forbes, head designer and proprietor of the fashion house, debuted his first collection “Le Caicos Chic with Decadence” at Caribbean International Fashion Week in NYC June 8th of 2011, exactly a year prior to the scheduled debut of his second collection, “Island Breeze.”
Caribbean Fashion Week is the region’s largest, most recognized fashion event. The event features both top Caribbean and international designers, supermodels and fashion press, including Vogue and Fashion TV Paris.
Forbes said he’s honored to be the first to represent his country at this show and said this showing is especially meaningful as it marks the anniversary of his Manhattan debut.
“The collection is inspired by the breathtaking beauty of the Turks and Caicos Islands,” said Forbes of his resort collection.
“For me, I think of the quality of light in the Turks and Caicos Islands, the sun, sand and sea, the blue of the moonlight and the minty light of the days. I go often to the beach, and there I try not just to see, but to feel the beauty of the environment. In my collection I have tried to re-produce that feeling.”
Caribbean Fashion Week includes approximately 14 shows and 50 designers from 25 countries, regional and international fashion buyers, viewership of 340 million in approximately 300 countries via Fashion TV Paris, high-profile post-show parties and contributions to the United Nations World Food Programme by Catwalk the World.
Saint George Fashion House’s participation is sponsored by Grace Bay Club Resorts, Turks and Caicos Friends of the Arts Foundation, Digicel TCI, Karam & Missick Law Firm, The Mail Drop International, the Turks and Caicos Sun Newspaper, Caribbean Property Management and Acres of Diamonds Ltd.
