CARIBBEAN STYLE & CULTURE
CARIBBEAN STYLE & CULTURE Awards and Fashion Showcase is a dynamic show filled with fashion, music, art and culture and is held annually in the month of June to commemorate CARIBBEAN-AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH.
The Caribbean Style & Culture Awards and Fashion Showcase has, over the last 10 years, celebrated and rewarded the excellence and remarkable contributions of designers and models that have significantly impacted the Caribbean Region’s rich Culture and the burgeoning Fashion Industry.
We have now added makeup artists and photographers to the list, because we recognized that they, too, play an important role in telling our stories through fashion. In this, our 10th year of activities and celebration, the Caribbean Style & Culture Awards and Fashion Showcase intends to grow even bigger and better than it has been over the years.
So take a look around and get acquainted with the impressive list of awardees and more about our show.
