BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- The Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) is encouraging the region’s fashion designers to apply to participate in this year’s Dominicana Moda in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, from October 21-26, 2013.
Caribbean Export, under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF), will be collaborating in the organization of Dominicana Moda 2013 (DM2013) to support fashion designers in showing their collection during the Dominican Republic official Fashion Week.
Caribbean Export is committed to the development of the fashion sector in the region and seeks to enable opportunities such as these to engage relevant stakeholders and foster sector-wide integration. This collaborative effort will provide a great opportunity for emerging and established fashion designers in the Caribbean to expose their vision at a regional and international stage, thus positioning the Caribbean as an international go-to location for fashion design and ingenuity.
In the past eight years, Dominicana Moda has grown to be the official Fashion Week of the Dominican Republic, thus the most important platform for the fashion Industry. It has certainly become the fastest growing runway show in the Latin American region.
Dominicana Moda is a yearly event for around six days of continuous runway shows where the best brands and designers come together. Major fashion houses have participated in the past, and this year it will surely continue to grow.
