Barbados’ 2011 BB Fashion Week is set to highlight the best in fashion from local and regional designers.

This year’s event will be held at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Barbados from October 28 to 30th, 2011, where just over 16 designers, will be exhibiting in three fashion shows.

On opening night, there will be a high fashion exhibition featuring fashion photography from 10 fashion artists.

Unique and innovative pieces will astound guests, as models strut the runway in the “wearable art” competition the second night. Designers, Rykii De Jude and Kesia Estwick from Barbados will showcase their versatility by staging a garment made of newspaper rather than fabric.

The final fashion show will feature international designer Christian Siriano who will reveal his 2012 ready-to-wear collection. The final night also climaxes with the “Toast to Fashion” awards show. These awards will recognise designers who have helped develop the industry. Awards will also be presented to the winners of the fashion competitions.
