Summer is kicking off in Jamaica with a series of must-do calendar events attracting patrons from far and wide. One such venture is Pulse Caribbeanโ€™s internationally renowned, 14-year-strong Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW), the 2014 installment of which was just held last weekend at the National Indoor Sports Centre in Kingston.

The premiere event on the Jamaican (and quite possibly, Caribbean) fashion calendar, CFW marries new style with music from top acts.ย (Peep our coverage of 2013’s edition here). Past years have seen performances from Kelly Rowland, Eve and Joe. This year brought Maxi Priest (straight shellinโ€™) and, repping for Trinidad, Major Lazer member and LargeUp contributor Jillionaire.ย  Cultural awareness was the pervasive theme for 2014, with pop culture and dancehall influences infused into numerous collections. The event also served as the launch for CFWโ€™s new website.
