Designer Participation information

Boston Caribbean Fashion Week welcomes designers of all levels to showcase their collections.

Boston Caribbean Fashion Week (BCFW) is produced by VStyle Productions. VStyle Productions is an entertainment production company that produces the local television fashion show Style It Up, which is a weekly fashion show that gives viewers an insider’s scoop to the New England fashion industry.
