FASHION Block, a marquee event on the StyleWeek calendar, is scheduled for Knutsford Boulevard in New Kingston this evening.

The event, which is free to the public, was formally held on Sundays.

Dewight Peters, CEO of Saint International, explained the reason for the change.

“Fashion Block used to be the climax on Sundays. However, we got feedback from patrons not wanting to stay late given that many would have work the following morning, so we've switched it up this year, placing it on Saturday night instead,” said Peters.

StyleWeek, which began on Monday, has so far seen Posh In Black at @twentythree, New Kingston; a red-carpet affair called French Elan at the French Embassy; and a Careers in International Fashion Symposium and City Style — Part 2 at Ocean Boulevard, downtown Kingston.

“We were always deliberate in creating an event that maintains the aspirational appeal of the fashion industry but staying rooted and connected to the heart of our Jamaican culture,” said Peters.

Across the five fashion events, Saint touts 20 top local designers to be joined by international fashion designers from Colombia, Canada, New York, London, and Paris.

“Several are unveiling collections exclusively at StyleWeek,” Peters explained.

They'll be backed up by the company's huge roster of international models like Tami Williams, Brad Allen, and Haytal Blackwood, to name a few.

StyleWeek will close tomorrow evening with International Mecca of Style in downtown Kingston.
