Coming back to the Caribbean for a second time is Caribbean's Next Top Model series, a spin-off from America's Next Top Model. Telecommunications provider Flow is a regional partner of the fashion-model competition. Casting calls will kick off tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Devon House, St Andrew.

The show tracks the stories of young women seeking to launch a career in the competitive world of modelling.

According to Gail Abrahams, director of corporate communications at Flow "The partnership was a perfect fit for Flow given the new position of the company as a Caribbean brand driven by all that is good and positive about the Caribbean, its people, its culture, and its innovation."

Former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam will again host the television series, accompanied by a panel of well-established judges. The show was created to exclusively feature the Caribbean experience and was shot on location in Trinidad & Tobago.

The series featured guests throughout the season, including photographer Matthew Jordan Smith; stylist and fashion pundit Freddie Leiba; music producer Bryce Wilson; Trinidadian fashion designer Claudia Pegus; and Soca Monarch winner Machel Montano.

For this season, the producers hope to bring out the essence of Caribbean culture. Ahead of the media launch earlier this month, Fitzwilliam stated: "We know that there are many young women in the Caribbean who have big dreams of success in fashion. The fashion and beauty industries have been impacted by the talent of women with Caribbean roots for quite some time, and CNTM provides an additional opportunity for more Caribbean women to be represented within the international fashion industry."
