 The San Fernando Fashion Week Trinidad committee is hard at work preparing for its 9th edition themed “Rhythms of Fashion”, which kicks off on May 11 with a Mother’s Day Pre-Show from 4 30 p.m. seating 5 p.m. showtime. With just over 120 models cast for the 2014 production designers are in construction mode to reveal their latest 2014 collections for San Fernando Fashion Week Trinidad Runway events.  

The Pre-Show promises to whet the appetites of all those in attendance giving them a “Sneak Peak” into what is to come for the Grand Finale Runway Event which comes off in June this year. 

For the second year SFFWT will present its special Pioneer Awards to three recipients. These awards will be presented at the Grand Finale. Stepping up a notch for the 9th year is included a model workshop seminar which will be hosted by Internationally Signed Models out of Paris, Milan and New York. They will give insights to help upcoming fresh faced models break into the model industry. These international models will also be hitting the runway for the Grand Finale Runway Event in June.

The retailer also plays an integral part in the development of the fashion industry and it is in this light, SFFWT will host its Retailer Day Event on June 21, 2014 which incorporates a retailers and boutique show night showcasing high fashion and the latest summer/party season wear. 

Fashion lovers and patrons will have the opportunity to experience fashion at its best as the organisers welcome a wealth of talented make-up artistes, craftsmen and women and models from as far as Milan, Paris, New York and Grenada as well as local and international designers from St Lucia, Guyana, Jamaica, Nevis and New York just to name a few.

This year promises to be a grand event as the committee of San Fernando Fashion Week Trinidad focuses on their theme “Rhythms of Fashion” by incorporating many different aspects of fashion, design and creative talent 

SFFWT is especially geared towards bringing to the forefront the works of new up and coming creative designers who may have never been given the opportunity to show in an event such as a Fashion Week, in the hope that they may establish their business and create a greater market awareness of their emerging brands.

SFFWT also remains committed to working with young focused individuals in the creative sector and aims to move the fashion sector forward by creating a strong networking body to build stronger ties and bonds within this sector and to promote Trinidad and Tobago as a whole regional/international developing  through trade and export.
