KARIB STYLE FASHION WEEK DC starts Thursday June 18th thru Sunday June 21st. One of the most important things in the Caribbean fashion industry is that there are always new designers bringing fresh ideas and incentives to the industry. The big fashion brands and names stay in place forever but even they are impacted upon by the new ideas and styles that come from the ground up. This is why the mark of any international fashion scene can be judged by the emerging designers who are creating waves and grabbing attention. This is one area where the Caribbean fashion industry can be seen to be on the rise because there is an environment that favors rapid growth and development of new talent looking to make their way to prominence. This is the First Segment, a list of six of twenty designers showcasing their collections.
