Virgin Island Fashion Week

Virgin Islands Fashion Week (VIFW) is the brainchild of Vern Tonge and Henry Marsham, two young people in their early thirties, with a dear love for the fashion industry.

Virgin Islands Fashion Week was created to manage, unite and provide a platform for established and up-and-coming designers from all over the Caribbean island chain, the USA, Canada, Europe and the African continent, to showcase their creativity to consumers and worldwide media. In 2007, 24 designers presented their unique one-of-a-kind collections.
VIFW, In its second year, 2008 is expected to showcase an even more diverse group, scheduled for October 6 – 13th, 2008 on the beautiful island of St. Thomas. The week of activities surrounding VIFW 2008 will include interactive workshops, seminars, runway shows, tradeshows and expos and after parties. This year VIFW 2008 is proud to give young, aspiring fashion designers the opportunity to be involved, giving them a chance to be discovered as the next rising star in Fashion Design.
