Record number of local designers to show at FWTT3

Port of Spain, Trinidad (May 7, 2010) – In its highly-anticipated third annual installment, Fashion Week Trinidad & Tobago (FWTT) will feature the largest number of designers in its history with 50 designers. In the impressive line-up, 40 designers hail from Trinidad & Tobago and 10 from other Caribbean nations.

“Forty is the highest number of local designers featured in their own country of any Caribbean fashion event,” said Richard Young, Fashion Week Trinidad & Tobago Artistic Director. “We were flooded with requests and interest not only locally but regionally, so we were able to select an electic mix to reach a wider cross section of fashion to meet buying tastes.”

Fashion Week Trinidad & Tobago will present the exciting melange of fashion in seven total runway shows – two in Tobago and five in Trinidad. Each runway show will be a unique display of designers’ creations fitting into five branded categories: Caribbean Cutting Edge, Cosquelle Swimwear, Nouveau Caribbean, New World Style, and Haute Caribbean.
