Miss Caribbean UK 2018 - Open Call for Fashion Designers. We are looking for Innovative and cutting edge designers to create evening dresses for the "Evening Gown" category, for selected finalists at the Miss Caribbean UK Grand Finale in London 2018.
The event will give designers a platform to display their creations to an audience of nearly 10 million.
The Selection Panelists hail from the world of Fashion, Media, and Hair and Beauty.
MCUK was created to celebrate and promote all the Caribbean countries under one umbrella. The event uses an annual pageant to promote, educate, inspire and celebrate the historical and cultural impact of the Caribbean diaspora within the United Kingdom. The event honours the beauty, creativity and intellect of Caribbean women in an exciting pageant finale.
Ultimately and importantly, the pageant seeks to place a greater emphasis, not just on “a pretty face”, but on a young woman who is able to demonstrate evidence of a far more holistic image of beauty - poise, personality, confidence, grace, self-worth, knowledge and a personal drive to achieve her ambitions. She would possess flair and represent the pinnacle of excellence to be crowned Miss Caribbean UK.
