This year's iteration of Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW), recently launched in Kingston, is set for June 6-10 inside the National Indoor Sports Centre, and promises a sizzling package (haute couture, entertainment, stylish thrills and chills) to the tune of $65 million. Hailing from across the region, Central America, the United States, and Europe (and as far away as the United Arab Emirates), some 15-20 designers will present collections at the week-long event. As we previously reported, R&B star Kelly Rowland is booked to perform, as well as award-winning singer-percussionist Sheila E.
Digicel Rising Stars is going back to basics (translation: the original format) for its upcoming 10th anniversary season. With the aim of reinvigorating the product and giving the talent show's viewership a solid boost, the producers have made the smart decision of convincing Anthony 'Killer' Miller to reprise his tough-love coaching style at the judging table. Miller will be joined on the panel by Tanya Stephens and Craigy T Thompson (of dancehall megagroup T.O.K), while Terri Karelle-Reid returns to host the competition.
