Tonight, New Kingston's business district comes alive as fashion lovers converge on the city centre for the annual fashion blockbuster: Saint International's Fashionblock.

Anticipation is super high as international supermodel Rob Evans jetted into the island on Thursday to be a part of the annual fashion celebration.

The British-born superstar blazed onto the fashion scene in 2010, after walking for the career-making Givenchy runway show as an exclusive booking. In 2012, he was selected to be a guest judge on Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model. This catapulted him to new celebrity status. He has graced many international magazine editorials and covers including Manifesto, V Man, GQ, ID, Vogue Hommes Japan, and many others. He has lent his physique and angular features to brands such as Calvin Klein Fragrance, Jeremy Scott for Adidas, CK One Jeans, and Givenchy. His appearance with pop icon Madonna for the Girls Gone Wild video has made him a cultural phenomenon.

"We expect another huge crowd tonight as Jamaicans celebrate their fashion culture on the global stage in grand style. We have incredible international fashion media and, once again, Styleweek makes Kingston the epicentre of global style and glamour," states an excited Deiwght Peters, creator and executive producer of Styleweek Jamaica. He continued, "Rob is excited to be a part of the event, and his agent, STORM Models in London, quickly accepted the invitation."

Storm Models have a long-standing relationship with Saint International as the London agency for some of the agency's top faces such as Tami Williams and new-face, Brandon Bailey.

This year, Saint International is also celebrating 15 successful years in the fashion industry, which has seen the agency raising the bar in many facets of the business.

Fashionblock is the Caribbean's biggest live fashion event, and at its peak, the audience for the public style spectacle peaked at 15,000. The show will start at 9 p.m and will feature an exciting array of Jamaica?s best designers and international supermodels.

Fashionistas are eagerly anticipating runway appearances by Jamaican supermodels Tami Williams.
