Local designers Isy Obi, Olivia B and Kenzie Rose will be bringing their unique styles and fashion flair to the red carpet during the 2017 CayFilm Cayman International Film Festival which takes place from 30 June to 3 July at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman. The trio will also be hosting a Q&A session on Monday, 3 July for aspiring fashion designers and people who are interested in the industry. Fashion is one of the new elements of the Festival this year. The event will also focus on food as well as film.

“Film and fashion are two industries that are very interrelated. Apart from the catwalk, the red carpet is the next best place for seeing the latest fashion trends worn by the Who’s Who in the fashion and entertainment worlds,” said Festival Director Tony Mark. “We want to showcase both the artists and their designs at the Festival. The quality of their work speaks for itself and we hope that CayFilm will expose them to a new, international and local clientele.”

The Isy B brand was founded by Isy Obi, and embodies the ease, glamour and understated refinement of modern island style. It is inspired by a love of contemporary design forms, a passion for all beautiful things, and the rich cultural diversity and uniquely cosmopolitan lifestyle of the Cayman Islands. Obi won the Designer of the Year award at Phoenix Fashion Week in 2016, and says she lives her dream every day, translating her passion for life, and her love for fashion into designing vibrant collections that make women feel special.

Olivia B first stepped onto the scene as a designer in 2014 at the Fashion At Heart Red Dress event in Grand Cayman, and in 2015 debuted her very first collection at Allure Fashion Weekend which was met with overwhelming support. Her second ready-to-wear collection ‘Parallel’, hit the runway at Cayman Islands Fashion Week in April 2016, which was another success. Recently, Olivia was selected by COSME (Caribbean Overseas Small to Medium Enterprise funded by the EU) to attend the 8th Annual BVI Summer Sizzle as an emerging designer from the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCT) and showcased at Nolcha Shows New York Fashion Week as an upcoming designer to watch.
