Cayman models strut on New York catwalk

| 02/10/2013

CNS): Local models Nadicia Dixon and Coral Tomascik put the Cayman islands on the fashion map this summer when the young women took part in the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week SS14.  International Designers Cesar Galindo, Korto Momolu and Indashio casted the Caymaian models for their international runway show based on their appearances in Cayman Islands Fashion Week earlier this year. Founder and CEO of Cayman Islands Fashion Week Cindy Rosan-Jones said the invitation provided an opportunity to introduce Dixon and Tomascik to the fashion world and vice-versa.

Rosan-Jones explained that the three designers have supported Cayman Islands Fashion Week since its inception, presenting their collections here and raising the profile on the local fashion fiesta on the international stage.

“The fact that these designers are providing this opportunity to models from the region speaks volumes of their commitment to embracing diversity, in an age when so many others are not. It is an exciting time for young models whose avenues onto the world stage are often limited,” she added.
