NEW YORK, USA- The 11th Annual Summer Sizzle BVI scheduled for Thursday July 25 – Sunday July 28, 2019 in the [British] Virgin Islands will feature two of the hit TV show, Project Runway, star designers Armando Thomas Guerra aka ‘Mondo Guerra’ and Korto Momolu.

This is according to Promoter and Founder of Summer Sizzle BVI, Mr Terry T. Donovan.

Fashion Designers  

Guerra and Momolu will showcase their latest collection on The Global and Glamour Runway, alongside top regional and local designers including Giannina Azar from the Dominican Republic, Uzuri International from Jamaica, Shernica Myers from St Vincent & Grenadines, Norma Ebanks from Cayman Islands, Kristin C. Frazer, Andrea Wilson and Akeem Stanley from the Virgin Islands.

Children’s wear designer Rochelle Ebanks from Cayman Islands, Andrew Harris (NYC), and Andrew Nowell will complete the line-up for this year’s event.

Schedule of events

The full schedule of events will include the Welcome Culture and Style Party at D’CoalPot Restaurant Bar and Grill, in Carrot Bay, Tortola on Thursday, July 25, 2019.

The feature event, the Global Glamour Runway Show, will be held on Saturday July 27 at the Save the Seed Energy Centre, followed by the VIP After Party.

The event, dubbed as the fashion event of the year, will also feature international artist Citiboi and some of the VI’s top entertainers and DJs.

The Sailing Excursion to Jost van Dyke and Beach Party will take place on Sunday July 28, 2019 and will culminate the weekend of fun and fashion.

In addition to the exclusive parties, sailing adventure, and the world-class Global Glamour Runway Show, attendees of the 11th Annual Summer Sizzle BVI will have the opportunity to partake in the "most fascinating travel experience—accentuated by incredible ocean view accommodations, distinctive culinary fare, and a vibrant culture that permeates elegance and nature.

“Progressively, the translation of beauty and style is becoming synonymous with the glamour and culture of the British Virgin Islands—which further invigorates our purpose to produce a famed international fashion destination event that rivals any other,” said Mr Donovan, Founder and Producer of Summer Sizzle BVI in a press release today, May 9, 2019.

“The breathtaking, panoramic views of our islands are the ideal location and backdrop for a fashion celebration like Summer Sizzle BVI and our scenery are perfect for photo shoots and advertising campaigns,” Mr Donovan further said.

Giving back to the community

In keeping with the event’s mission to promote the Virgin Islands as a fashion tourism destination, Summer Sizzle BVI will continue its effort to rebuild, restore and revive the VI through volunteer work and other initiatives. In 2018, Summer Sizzle BVI auctioned off art by artist Roma Osowo and funds were donated to Family Support Network (FSN).

Models, designers and visitors also donated school supplies to schools throughout the VI and a group of models, designers and other fashion professionals teamed up to assist in the clean-up efforts. This year, Summer Sizzle BVI will partner with local organisations to aid in the continued efforts to improve the Virgin Islands community through volunteerism and philanthropy.

Summer Sizzle BVI began in 2009 and has featured top designers, models and artists including Taraji P. Henson, Eva Marcelle Sterling and Nigel Barker to name a few.

Official sponsors for the event are the BVI Tourist Board, the Government of the Virgin Islands – Office of the Premier, Rufred Forbes and Associates, Popeye’s, JTV, Jahphix, Bob's Gas & Service Station, Skelton Group, Road Town Wholesale Trading, D’Coal Pot BVI Restaurant Bar & Grill, Speedy’s, Elite Photography and Whitecap Films.
