Two new star designers will be showcasing their latest work at the 11th staging of the annual Summer Sizzle BVI scheduled for July 25 to 28.
The designers in the US television show Project Runway are Mondo Guerra and Korto Momolu.
They will meet other internationally-acclaimed designers such as Giannina Azar, Uzuri International, Shernica Myers, Norma Ebanks, Rochelle Ebanks, Andrew Harris, and Andrew Nowell on the local runway show.
Also sharing the stage will be local designers Kristin Frazer, Andrea Wilson and Akeem Stanley.
“Progressively, the translation of beauty and style is becoming synonymous with the glamour and culture of the British Virgin Islands which further invigorates our purpose to produce a famed international fashion destination event that rivals any other,” said event producer Terry Donovan.
He continued: “The breathtaking, panoramic views of our islands are the ideal location and backdrop for a fashion celebration like Summer Sizzle BVI and our scenery are perfect for photo shoots and advertising campaigns”.
In the meantime, the ‘welcome culture and style party’ associated with Summer Sizzle will be held at D’Coal Pot Restaurant in Carrot Bay on July 25.
The event will continue with the Global Glamour Runway Show on July 27 at the Save the Seed Energy Center followed by a VIP afterparty.
On July 28, a sailing excursion to Jost Van Dyke followed by a beach party will bring the curtains down for another year.
Donovan also said the event will spearhead volunteer work in an effort to continue in its quest to rebuild, restore and revive the territory.
