Internationally renowned swimwear designers from the Caribbean and the U.S. converge at the chic Tobacco Warehouse in Dumbo to showcase the latest in sensual and innovative swimwear.
Brooklyn, New York: JRG Entertainment is announcing its second annual Bikini Under the Bridge Swimsuit Fashion Event, a crowning event in its ten year resume of outstanding fashion shows in Brooklyn. The event will be held at the Tobacco Warehouse at Water and Dock Streets in Dumbo on June 24th, 2007. Doors will open at 4pm with the event slated to begin at 7pm. Headlining the event will be the brilliant designer and Creative Director of both Barbados and St. Kitts Fashion weeks, Roger Gary; Michael Awards 2000 Best New Menswear Designer of the Year, Francis Hendy; and Brooklyn’s William Fleet’s TBA (To Be Afrikan). TBA hired Sue Rock Originals to create these custom designs for his company!
WBLS’ vivacious Wendy Williams will open the show, and Sister2Sister magazine’s fashion editor Walter Greene will serve as host. The show will also feature a vibrant after-party (included in ticket price) where attendees will be able to rub shoulders with who’s who in Caribbean politics, sports, business, and of course, fashion.
In a no-holds-barred media blitz, JRG has partnered with the MTA to plaster the side panels of 100 buses, and the inside of 50 bus stops with the image of a pouty, 6 ft., bathing suit clad model. With the juxtaposition of platinum hair and dark skin she dares you to miss this great show of eye candy. WBLS’s Steve Harvey as well as 93.5’s Irie Jam will advertise the event with model/designer interviews and ticket give-aways. National television channels such as VH1, BET, E!, and Lifetime, in addition to local Caribbean channel CIN, will feature commercials of the show.
