Fashion in da’ House parade at Cuba’s Fine Arts Museum

Havana, May 7 (Prensa Latina) As part of the Month of Europe in Cuba, Fashion in da' House, a parade organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the European Union (EU), will be take place at the National Museum of Fine Arts in this capital on Tuesday.

A group of 16 young Caribbean designers will represent the region’s creativity in a competition to promote the fashion industry, a sector with great potential for development in the Caribbean.

International experts in fashion and entrepreneurship, including Nigerian businesswoman Omoyemi Akerele, director general of Lagos Fashion Week, will advise these creators and will be a member of the Transculture Awards jury.

Participants in this unprecedented fashion show come from Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

These young designers were finalists in the Made in the Caribbean Fashion Design Competition.

With this artistic forum, UNESCO and the EU aim to acknowledge the region’s young talent and promote entrepreneurship in the fashion industry.

The event is part of the program “Transculture: Integrating Cuba, the Caribbean and the European Union through Culture and Creativity,” financed by the UN agency.
