The Soirée is a stylish production in celebration of the dedication and passion of our Free Your Mind Program. Our design students and guests show up and show out with their unique outfits while select artists paint live and on location, and as local musical talent add their creative flare alongside our local and international guests. Our sponsors, influencers, models, international designers, celebrities and press can enjoy specialty cocktails and floating appetizers during our cocktail hour, whilst enjoying the best of Cayman creativity on our opening night.
THE RUNWAY SHOW
Lights! Camera! Fashion! The Runway Show’s first year left the onlookers in awe and we can’t wait to excel in 2023. As usual the Show will feature local, as well as top international designers, and this year we are excited to introduce CIFWK Bridal with a lineup fine-tuned to bring the highs and excitement of breathtaking bridal gowns from internationally known bridal designers.
Our local models were trained by International Runway Coach Alva Page who has groomed the likes of Cayman’s very own Alyssa Powell-Johnson; currently signed to Wilhelmina Miami and Aaliyah Hydes; currently signed to Muse Management.
The inception of the 2019 show provided a platform for local designers to be seen alongside international top designers such as Sergio Hudson (known for his designs for Michelle Obama, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez) and Sai Sanko (who showed her collection for the first time ever on a runway and has since been worn by celebrities such as Gabrielle Union-Wade and Jenna Jenovich) – quality which will be repeated in 2023.
The Cayman Islands' glistening waters await you. The Escape is intended to showcase our island's beauty to visiting celebrities, designers, and media, as well as allow guests to indulge in the enchanting and pristine Caribbean gem.
Sponsors, local designers, and models will be able to mingle with the A-listers in a casual setting at The Escape and give them a taste of the Cayman Islands' unique brand of hospitality.
In 2023 we are also excited to introduce Cayman InStyle Fashion Week Market to our lineup. The Market will follow the Runway Show where local and international designers will have the opportunity to interact with our guests and sell their products to retailers.
While showcasing the latest fashions and trends, Cayman InStyle Fashion Week Bridal will make its debut as an anticipated segment of the Runway Show. The lineup is fine tuned to bring the highs and excitement of breathtaking bridal gowns from internationally known bridal designers.
