Islands of the World Fashion Week Designer Call

7/19/2010 11:10:00 AM

Nassau, Bahamas: Mode Îles, Ltd., organizers of the award-winning event, Islands of the World Fashion Week, is announcing the third edition of their spectacular showcase of established and novice designers to the world's stage. The event will take place on November 11th- 13th in Nassau, Bahamas, exposing island-based designers to the international media and prospective buyer markets. This year promises to be even more beneficial to our potential designers as we've added a televised special/series, which will focus on the designers and events surrounding IWFW. The special will comprise of three segments, which will run parallel to the main event:

     

  • "In Search of the Next Oscar"- A runway presentation of five designers selected from five island nations highlighting the themes of eco-fashion, culture and fashion, and red/green carpet designs. Judges will select the designer with the greatest potential for following in the footsteps of the most internationally renowned designer originating from a developing island nation, Oscar de la Renta, and whose couture design will shine given the opportunity to walk the red carpet of that most celebrated of social events, the Oscars of the Academy Awards.
  • Featured Designers Showcase - This is the usual Islands of the World Fashion Week runway presentation of the creations of those designers who are not participating in "In Search of the Next Oscar". Excerpts from each designer's runway show will be included in the Television Special.
  • "Fashion Cares for Haiti: The Relief Benefit Fashion Show" - This one-night event will feature five designers from Haiti showcasing their lines of clothing on the runway. The objective is to draw focus to the continuing efforts at rebuilding Haiti after the tragic earthquake of January, and to show to the world that the vibrant fashion industry in Haiti can play a pivotal role in this redevelopment through trade rather than the sole emphasis on aid.

     

As the 2010 Islands of the World Fashion Tour from Palm Springs to Miami comes to an end, you are invited to join the wining team of noted designers in showcasing your work at this year's coveted "Islands of the World Fashion Week 2010". Have your designs share the catwalk with such notables as Kenneth Cole, Leanne Marshall, Kevan Hall, Nick Verreos, Harl Taylor BAG, Eric Raisina, K. Bobby and many others in their display of cultural diversity and creativity. In addition, as a designer you are eligible for awards in three categories: NextGen Designer Award, the Culture & Fashion Award and the Sustainable Eco-Fashion Award. The deadline for application submission is August 31st, 2010.
