Style Week Jamaica 2008 ignites global excitement


Kingston, Jamaica:-- Saint International is proud to present the internationally recognized Style Week Jamaica (SWJ) 2008 to be held in Kingston, Jamaica, Friday, May 23 - Sunday May 25. This year¢s staging is creating global excitement as international brands, designers, models, celebrities and media are signing up to experience the inimitable affair.

SWJ 2k8 will create history by presenting for the first time on the Caribbean runway, the highest number of high profiled international designers from the major fashion capitals Paris, London, New York and Amsterdam. B. Michael, Bas Koster, Ed Hardy, Favvette and Julia Clancy are only a handful of the international designers who are ecstatic to be on board this year.

Saint International will be bringing home Jamaica's and the Caribbean's most successful supermodel ever as well as their own top models to grace the stage and be the easels for the display of the fashion glitz and glamour. Georgianna Robertson's homecoming will be an impressive one considering the phenomenal career she has had. Saint International superstars Sasha, Canise, Jotasha, Sosheba, Jermain, Sigail, Tafari, Kevin and Venecia are, indeed, honoured to share the same stage.

Celebrities are also jumping at the opportunity to witness the event that journalists worldwide consider to be among the top 3 best fashion shows globally. But that is no shocker as the 150 feet catwalk spectacle, which blocks a major business thoroughfare is one to be seen.

The event¢s unique timing captures holidays in North America and Europe, Memorial Day Weekend and Banking Holidays, respectively. It allows for strong inclusive and an exciting schedule of events to unfold, which is a credible potential as a strong tourism branding product.

Principal sponsors, Digicel, Gillette, Mitsubishi, Air Jamaica, Island Outpost, Strawberry Hill, The Caves, Heineken, Old Spice, Ferrero Rocher, Skyy Vodka and TVJ are the most powerful lifestyle brands that have rallied their support for the event.

The blockbuster and internationally acclaimed FASHIONBLOCK is the biggest and most glamorous fashion event in the Caribbean - and is considered the single most influential fashion event in this side of the world.

The 4-day extravaganza, Style Week Jamaica, with its multiple after parties, VIP cocktail receptions, seminars, supermodels and glamorous runway shows appeal to the die-hearted fashionistas from around the world.
