NKY Fashion Week: High fashion meets high design

4 December 2018

Luxury retailer NKY celebrates 10 years of high fashion in the Cayman Islands with four global fashion brands previewing their spring 2019 collections at the Cayman Islands’ largest fashion event for the year on December 6, 2018. The designers and models will also take part in a lifestyle photoshoot that showcases high design at The Residences at Seafire, Dart Real Estate’s luxury resort-residential development located on the world-famous Seven Mile Beach.

Headlining NKY Fashion Week will be global fashion brand BCBGMAXAZRIA, who will be joined by New York-based men’s luxury brand Robert Graham, noted women’s designer Hale Bob, and California lifestyle brand Trina Turk.

“BCBGMAXAZRIA is excited to team up with our long standing partner, NKY – Cayman Fashion Group, to present our Resort and Spring Collection in a fashion show this December,” says Bernd Kroeber, Creative Director of BCBGMAXAZRIA. “This new line complements the lifestyle of the chic, discerning travellers and residents of the Cayman Islands.”

NKY boutique is a leading retailer of designer fashions, footwear and accessories in the Cayman Islands. Founder and CEO of Cayman Fashion Group Nicola de Lima’s eye for fashion, attention to detail and love of style has helped fuel the retailer’s success and has led to the opening of five additional boutiques under the Cayman Fashion Group brand.

“We are very excited to be celebrating 10 years of fashion, luxury, and style in the Cayman Islands this year. Along with our notable sponsors and partners, we are confident everyone will enjoy a very memorable experience in Grand Cayman. My team and I look forward to celebrating NKY’s success on December 6th,” says de Lima.

For some of the designers, this is their first trip to the Cayman Islands. Not only will they be partaking in a photoshoot on an exclusive beachfront property, they will also be staying in style at The Residences at Seafire, the newest resort-residential development on Seven Mile Beach. The Residences are a 62-unit oceanfront tower adjacent to the Kimpton Seafire Resort and spa and feature a range of floorplans from ultra-chic studios to grand five bedroom residences all with unique water views and access to the neighbouring amenity-rich Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa.

No stranger to fashion, the luxurious residences feature signature spaces by noted interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, best known for designing the homes of celebrities including Ellen Pompeo, Cher and The Kardashians. The property has been the vacation destination of choice for celebrities including Oscar-nominated actor Armie Hammer and Grand Slam tennis champion Caroline Wozniacki.

“We are pleased to host the global designers’ photo shoot at The Residences at Seafire; it’s a perfect fit as high design is nestled in a backdrop of contemporary Caribbean style,” says Dart Real Estate President Jackie Doak. “We look forward to welcoming the international designers to the Cayman Islands and congratulate Nicola and NKY on their success.”

Tickets for the event are now on sale at NKY and Abacus in Camana Bay. Net proceeds from the event will be donated to the local Cayman Islands chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters. The evening will also feature local celebrities, a raffle and silent auction, cocktails and entertainment.
