CFW Bio by Shop Caribbean Fashion
Caribbean Fashionweek is produced by Pulse, a fashion and entertainment company which pioneered the development of the fashion and modelling industries in the Caribbean. The company is listed on the Jamaica Stock Exchange and was the first of its kind to be publicly listed. CFW began in 2001 and one of its essential features is to showcase the fashion design talent of the region to the rest of the world, and drive export opportunities for Caribbean designers. The event has grown in status and attracts world-class entertainment and a plethora of internationally successful models, however the focus in 2014 has returned to creating a platform for designers to monetize their creative enterprise globally.
The launch of ShopCaribbeanfashion.com will allow international fashion lovers to purchase directly from the Caribbean catwalk online or in person by attending the shows.
