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."
