The tenth staging of the Bermuda Fashion Festival is expected to create opportunities for local businesses, Mayor of the City of Hamilton Charles Gosling said.

Mr Gosling said the festival “continues to bring international models and designers of outstanding talent to the island while also providing opportunities for our local fashion enthusiasts.”

He said the event is worthy of international recognition with previous participants launching their careers from the festival.

Mr Gosling added: “I have no doubt that this year’s event will surpass the previous ones in calibre, excitement, glitz and glamour.”

He said the City has hosted the Fashion Festival for the past nine years as part of its vision to create a vibrant city.

Mr Gosling added: “We hope our local community as well as visitors to Bermuda embrace the opportunity to come out and support our home-grown designers and models and experience the high-fashion collections and array of social events.”

Danilee Trott, Executive Producer and Savvy COO, said:“ It’s amazes me that it’s been 10 years already. It has truly gone by so fast and I’ve loved every minute of organising this Festival. To see where we started out and now experience where we are as a recognised fashion event in the fashion community truly warms my heart.”

There will be four featured runway shows along with other social events during the festival which will run from July 7 to July 13.
