Belize Fashion Week Kicks off in the City

Starting on Thursday night, throes of designers, models and supporters of the fashion industry will be in Belize City for the staging of the Belize Fashion Week. Since its inception, the fashion show has been held in San Pedro, but this year they are bringing it to the city to centralize the event for an ever wide audience with a larger venue at the Ramada Belize City Princess. Pat Greif, the organizer says that the opening takes place on Thursday night where you get to mix and mingle with the designers and models.

“We are trying to encourage the public to meet and greet before the show begins so that is going to be at club elite at 7:30. On Friday morning we will be doing rehearsals with our models and designers and we will have last minute fittings as well at the princess and in the night we will have our first run-way show. We will have six designers showing that night and one guest boutique that will be showing as well.  The run down for Saturday is pretty much the same thing with rehearsals and then we have our international designers who will be coming in and sitting down with our local designers talking with them letting them know what it takes to get from one sewing machine in their room to getting on big runways internationally, and then Saturday night we have our runway again. And culminating on Sunday with the sale of, hopefully, everything that these designers put their hard-work and effort into.”

“So, it’s going to be a weekend of display of Belizean talent?”

“Yes, it’s really that. That will be it- about displaying the talent of our Belizeans and it’s also supporting our young entrepreneurs. So much of our youths are crying there are not a lot of jobs and they don’t get the support. So, this is one event where these girls and guys are putting their talent showcasing what they have and it is a matter of us as a wider community coming out to support them.”
