Port of Spain can become an iconic global fashion destination says fashion enthusiast Crystal Cunningham. Cunningham brought Jamaican event planner Intuit Concepts and the Hilton Trinidad together to launch the Port of Spain Fashion Week (POSFW) at the Lady Young Road hotel last Monday. The former model says the showcase, which is carded for November 8 to 10, could potentially generate global interest in local fashion.

“All the iconic fashion weeks around the world are named after the popular cities they are held in from Paris, Milan, London and New York. Port of Spain is our capital so it’s only fitting that we establish ours as Port of Spain Fashion Week (POSFW).
