According to organizer of the show Nicotello Providence, Vincentians will witness a fashion show with a difference.

Providence, a Vincentian by birth, but who currently resides in Montreal, Canada, told SEARCHLIGHT that D-Square fashion show is the first of its kind to be held here, where parts of the city of Kingstown will be blocked off to accommodate an event.

The event will feature Lisette E. King, fashion designer and host of Barbados music awards, as well as Kingsley Thorne, fashion designer and judge of Britain and Ireland’s next top model and owner of Ebony modelling agency of Barbados.

Karen Graves-Davis, judge of Britain and Ireland’s next top model from England, the Shabeau magazine out of Barbados and Carib Vision, will also be on island to cover the event.

“These are the guys that will be coming and it’s going to be an experience of a lifetime, as it relates to fashion in SVG,” Providence said.

Eight local designers, including Kimya Glasgow and Jean Adams, will also have their designs on display at the much anticipated fashion event.

In an interview with SEARCHLIGHT on Wednesday evening, Providence said that with only three days left before the event, preparations are in order and Vincentians can look forward to a high class fashion show.

Providence, who is also the CEO and owner of Tivoli & Fiache Styles, located in Canada, also said he is confident that patrons will not be disappointed after they leave Saturday’s event.

The designers from Barbados and Canada will arrive on island this morning at 10 a.m., he revealed.

“You can’t hear about it. You have to be there to experience it yourself,” Providence stated.

Meanwhile, manager of the SOV resturant and lounge Andrew DeShong said his establishment is pleased to be associated with the event.

De Shong said when he was first approached by Providence about the idea, he did not hesitate to “jump on board.”

“This is something with a major difference and many persons would be wondering how are they going to pull this off by hosting a fashion show at Heritage Square?

“But, as Nicotello said, you have to be there to experience the entire transformation and top class fashion that will be on display,” he added.

Red carpet entry will commence at 5 p.m., with the show beginning at 7. This will be followed by an after party that will be held at the SOV night club. (AA)
