Carib Fashion Benefit

As New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019 attracts the attention of millions, a fund-raiser in the name of Caribbean fashion and designers is coming to the city next month.

The Caribbean American Fashion Exchange reception, a "Caribbeans in Fashion" meet-and-greet to benefit the CAFE (Caribbean American Fashion Exchange) Scholarship Fund — will be held on Feb. 10 at Pineapple GDNYC, 35 W. 38th St. in Manhattan, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The scholarship fund — established at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology — helps students who live in the Caribbean region and who are studying at FIT. The scholarship fund also supports the Caribbean presence in the fashion industry, said Janice Lawrence Clarke of CAFE and JLC Productions.

Through special events, the CAFE initiative works to strengthen, develop and promote the Caribbean’s fashion industry. For information on the fund-raiser, visit
