The 2011 edition of Caribbean Fashion Week will be held from May 31 to June 4 of this year. The regional fashion event will be held at the Sans Souci Tourist Port in Santo Domingo. National and international fashion designers will be able to display their latest collections thanks to the sponsorship being provided by the Ministries of Tourism and Culture of the Dominican Republic. In its very beginning, this event was known as the Dominican Fashion Week. However, thanks to an alliance with the organizers of New York Fashion Week and Puerto Rico’s High Fashion Week, the event has now become a Caribbean fashion extravaganza.
The international guest list includes Custo Barcelona, as well as local designers Sissi Bermúdez, Arcadio Díaz, Giannina Azar, Marisol Henriquez and Modesta Castillo, among others.
