Caribbean Fashion Show 6/23/10


Sunday night, a few of us went to the 2nd Annual Caribbean Fashion Show that was held not too far from where I live. I found out about this simply by Googling "fashion shows south Florida summer 2010" and this came up...eventually.

First, I must say it was weird to host an event on Father's Day, especially when it falls on a Sunday and people (like myself) have to work the next day.

I will say that although the production of the show was less than stellar, I did see some great designs strut down the catwalk more than once.

Here are some photos from the night (please excuse the crappy photos: I used the camera on my phone because I didn't think I'd be allowed to bring in the heavy artillery--the DSLR).

I've picked out some of my favorites from the night! Enjoy.

Me, Jen and Ashlee before the show

Sydney and Ari pre-show

This guy was one of the highlights of the show. No, not a model, but the saxophone player who had amazing lung capacity.

The show was super long, and for no good reason. I'm pretty sure one designer showcased her entire showroom instead of just picking out the best of the best.

This horrible camera didn't give these shoes any justice! They were so beautiful!

Oh, and people are scantily clad because it was a swimwear
show with some evening wear tied in at the end.

Some of this stuff was so hot. Would've been great for a photo shoot.

All in all, I'd have to say that I did see some wonderful designs throughout the night and some fab shoes. If I were an agent, I would definitely be able to find some models I'd rebook.

But I would advise that the company that produced this show hire a new emcee (this guy forgot the designer's name at one point) and audition actual DJs (the crowd was left in silence on numerous occasions as the "dj" would just let the music end instead of letting it fade into a new song).

What do you all think of the fashions?
