Fashion Showcase Weekend to honour Kingsley Cooper
Kingsley Cooper, Chairman of Pulse Investments Ltd, Jamaica's Entertainment Advisory Board and the immediate past chairman of the Caribbean Fashion Industry Association, will be honoured with the Ocean Style Fashion Icon Award during this year's Fashion Showcase Weekend.
For the past eight years, the Ocean Style Fashion Showcase, has carved out a reputation as the premier Caribbean hub for designers, models and influencers originating from Jamaica and the wider region. This year, the organisers of this fashion extravaganza are in the process of curating an unparalleled experience for the discerning fun and fashion seeker, coupled with an all-inclusive weekend laced with innovation, celebration and haute couture.
Ocean Style's Fashion Icon Award was established to honour those who have not only succeeded in establishing themselves as a force within the fashion industry, but have also gone above and beyond in promoting the overall visibility of the Caribbean's talent and reputation in the global fashion industry. Cooper has done just that and more, helping to mould the Caribbean fashion industry through his varied initiatives, such as the Pulse International Modelling Agency and its annual Caribbean Model Search, Caribbean Fashion Week, lifestyle television programme Caribbean Fashion Weekly, and the Caribbean Model Search reality show featuring Jamaican, regional and international legs of the Caribbean Model Search.
Cooper is ecstatic about the recognition.
"As we celebrate 35 years as an organisation, it is an absolute honour to accept the Ocean Style fashion icon award. We are happy to have made a difference in the lives of so many persons in so many parts of the world. I accept this award on behalf of the wider group of Pulse team members and associates who have contributed in so many ways to our success. I look forward to attending this important event," Cooper said.
The Ocean Style Fashion Showcase Weekend takes place over three days, starting on October 29 with Dulce de Leche, the event's premier lingerie and swimwear fashion show at Secrets Resorts. The October 30 event will play host to the Kingsley Cooper Fashion Icon Awards Dinner and the all-inclusive all-white party, Eyes Wide Shut, hosted by model, Nicole Murphy, at the Rose Hall Great House. October 31 is the date for the Celebrity Golf Tournament, a star-studded event preceding the weekend's signature event, the Ocean Style Fashion Showcase Runway Show featuring some of the compelling work of talented designers.
Ocean Style offers fashion lovers a premier and original experience through knowledge, experience and a shared passion for the Caribbean with a team working tirelessly to ensure that all expectations are exceeded. The Fashion Showcase Weekend is principally sponsored by Secrets Resorts, the Jamaica Tourist Board and the Montego Bay Convention Center.
