Ibiza Fashion Festival Launches in the White Isle
Ibiza has always been at the forefront of fashion and design and this year the Ibiza Fashion Festival will come to the White Isle on the evening of the 4th of June at Mo Resturante in Es Cubells in the south of the island.
The event is produced by Creative Director Karen Windle who after several visits to Ibiza saw a gap in the market to promote and give a platform for new and emerging brands that would be beneficial to the island’s talent.
The theme of this year’s event is Swimwear and Boho fashion and will showcase not only Ibizan designers but up and coming international designers to then expand into a multi venue week of shows in 2017.
Karen Windle event producer said “The Ibiza Fashion Festival is a fantastic showcase for island designers to elevate their designs to the world stage, helping them reach a wider audience and to connect with other European designers and companies which we hope will be beneficial to their brands and creativity“.
The designers showcasing their collections include:
Melissa Young who creates bespoke evening and swimwear pieces, reaching out to the elegant and beautifully women of today.
Beth Richardson Fashion Every piece she designs is crafted by hand to make the clothes as unique as the people that wear them. Ibiza Fashion Festival will be the first showcase of her full summer collection and has been designed to reflect the evolving trends of rave and club cultures.
Boho Street who connect independent artists and designers with their ideal customers through a unique shopping experience that builds a community and supports local designers.
Bugsy Swimwear are proud to present a first of its kind, ‘Custom Design’ Bugsy’s which are designed by you, made by them and loved by everyone.
Victoria Deny based in Ibiza who expresses a distinctive blend of fashion trends with timeless fine jewellery said “The Ibiza Fashion Festival is for me a fun alternative way to show my jewellery, plus it’s my first season in Ibiza so I am really excited about the event, runway shows are perfect to highlight my pieces and inspire me to create even more special and unique designs“.
Up and coming designer brand FashionSistas said of the show “This is our first beachwear collection as we specialise in dark and edgy stage style clothing so the Ibiza show will definitely expose another side to my creativity and gives me a fantastic opportunity to research the market in the most talked about beach island that is the one and only IBIZA. I am so grateful for this opportunity“.
Also showcasing their designs at the event will be BohoValentina, Innu London, West Seventy Nine, Natalie Judith, Martin Lumé Swimwear, Royal Rodent and with shoes from Là Ibiza Concept.
In attendance will also be Jessica Hayes – Love Island Winner and Sarah Rich – Top Model Winner alongside entertainment provided by Fire Eater Caroline Blot, DJ Daniel Klien and Saxophonist Anastasia McQueen.
Unite hair team celebrity stylist Daniel Jordan and Novalash celebrity makeup artist Simone Myers will be on hand to make sure the models look their very best for the evenings runway show.
The event has already gained support from top brands including Vel, Ibiza Bugz, Jeunvie and Revolver expanding its reach and coverage for the up and coming designers.
Top Model UK Operations Director Geoff Cox said “This is a wonderful opportunity to develop strong links between Top Model and the Ibiza Fashion Festival, showcasing the fabulous designers involved and our Top Model UK and Worldwide competition winners“.
The event is by invitation only for the 2016 launch edition but it is hoped that it will develop into a week long annual event – The Ibiza Fashion Festival, across multiple locations in Ibiza for 2017.
