In the Spotlight: Curacao International Fashion Week!

Yes Yes, you read it right; Curacao International Fashion Week!!

When I first read about this event on Facebook I was a little skeptical about it since it was plain Curacao Fashion Week. I started to wonder how many local designers existed and if they could pull off a fashion week. But as more information about this event emerged I went from skeptical to excited. It happens to be that the event is Curacao International Fashion Week and it is exactly this international nature of the event that really changed my perspective.

"Curaçao International Fashion Week has as goal to be the leading event in the Caribbean for fashion designers to showcase their collections to a global audience of press, retailers, stylists, industry influencers and establish itself as a platform of discovery promoting innovative fashion designers through runway shows and exhibitions, without excluding the most important part of this event which is promote internationally what makes Curaçao special among Caribbean Islands."

The first edition of Curacao International Fashion Week, brought to you by Visionary Fashion Group, is scheduled to take place 21, 22, 23, 24 & 25 of May 2012 at the Hilton Hotel Curacao. Among the designers you'll find:
  • David Paulus
  • Custo Barcelona
  • Aqua di Lara (Swimwear)
  • Catherine Malandrino
  • Adha Zelma (Jewelry)
  • And many others.
Honestly I don't know what to expect, but I'm definitely not expecting it to be like the usual Paris, New York or Milan Fashion Week since we Caribbean people know how to put our own flavor to things. 

For more information you can like Curacao International Fashion Week on Facebook, follow them on Twitter or just visit their Website.



  1. I always said Curacao needed to be more involved in the whole fashion world. And now, when they actually make an effort, I'm not there! I'm feeling so sorry for myself right now :p

    1. I hope I can attend a couple of shows, otherwise I'll be feeling sorry for myself too XD

  2. Ohh nice! Good to see Curacao getting involved in the fashion world! Thanks for sharing. Your blog is amazing, I am looking forward to your next post!
