Style Week 2017 is slated to get under way tonight and Saint International is promising patrons a fashion spectacular to outclass any previous staging.

Speaking at the recent launch at the Spanish Court Hotel, CEO Deiwght Peters, said the idea of Style Week was unique in many respects.

"It is the major platform for fashion in Jamaica because we have the major Jamaican designers on showcase but the most unique aspect of Style Week is that we sell Kingston, our capital city. Style Week Jamaica is the only lifestyle event of its kind that takes place around the city of Kingston at different venues," he said.

Peters revealed a new venue for 2017, the roof of the Digicel world headquarters in downtown Kingston on Saturday night.

Style Week will culminate on Knutsford Boulevard in New Kingston for another staging of Fashion Block on Sunday May 28.

Marcia McLoughlin, deputy director of the Jamaica Tourist Board congratulated Peters for his 13 years in the business stating that his contribution has brought many international eyes in Jamaica.

"Style Week has not only been a platform for the talented Saint Models but it's an opportunity for our creative designers to showcase their talent and art to the international arbiters of style and fashion," she said.

Thirty designers are expected to showcase their work and international models such as Kai Newman, Tevin Steele and Naki Depass are expected to grace the runways.
