The Cayman Islands is one of the most luxurious getaways in the Caribbean. It is the epitome of beauty, pleasure, luxury, fine foods and an exotic lifestyle all wrapped up in one package. Where else in the Caribbean can you find relaxation on the most beautiful beach in the world, an exquisite culinary adventure and the hottest night life?
The Cayman Islands Fashion Week (CIFW) serves as a platform for showcasing international, Caymanian and Caribbean trend setting fashion designers. It also features models from some of the world’s top agencies including Ford, Major, DNA, RED, Muse, Next, IMG and Elite. Sessilee Lopez, Georgie Badiel, Kacie Schaffer and Bobby Roache are amongst the diverse selection of top models that have strutted our runways; with the inaugural event being hosted by Selita Ebanks.
Guavaberry Marketing (Cayman) Ltd. has put all these delicacies together and have created an annual extraordinary weekend in the beautiful Cayman Islands in celebration of the biggest fashion event to hit the Caribbean, “Cayman Islands Fashion Week.”
Given the diverse dynamic of our demographic, Cayman Islands Fashion Week (CIFW), have supported and will continue to support a wide range of Charities on island:
Big Brother Big Sister (BBBS Cayman)
BBBS was our charity of choice for our inaugural event in 2010.
Cayman Heart Fund
With the support of The Heart Health Center & The Heart Truth Red Dress, Guavaberry Marketing has introduced as part of Cayman Islands Fashion Week, the “Fashion at Heart” Red Dress Runway Show. This show mimics that of the Red Dress runway show done by The Heart Truth Message during New York Fashion Week. The concept invites local designers to design a red dress for the runway and the funds from each dress sold goes to benefit Cayman Heart Fund while raising awareness for heart health. The first show was held in November 2012.
About The Cayman Islands
Welcome to the beautiful Cayman Islands!
Nestled in the calm, turquoise waters of the western Caribbean, lies the peaceful British Overseas Territory known as the Cayman Islands. Consisting of three islands (Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman) and built of limestone outcroppings, our little piece of paradise is located 480 miles south of Miami. All three islands are surrounded by healthy coral reefs, which lie at the top of dramatic walls and drop-offs close to shore, creating ideal conditions for diving and sport fishing.
The following are suggestions on how to spend your time in the Cayman Islands! Source: www.caymanislands.ky
Hit the sand!
Cayman’s most famous beach is Seven Mile Beach. Crystal clear, calm waters and white sand make this stretch of beach ideal for a day in the sun for everyone. Rum Point and Kaibo are perfect spots when taking a trip to the other side of the island. You can search for starfish, go snorkelling and enjoy a bite to eat. Smith’s Cove is located in South Sound and is one of the most beautiful coves you’ll ever see. There are picnic tables and restrooms and it is located only a short distance away from George Town. Cemetery Beach in West Bay is known for its snorkelling, as there are many rock formations in the water located close to the shore. Typically not a very busy location, you can snorkel all day and then take a nap under one of the handful of trees that are on the beach. If you want to go to your own private beach, hire a car, take a road trip and pull over at any spot you find ideal to play in the surf and sand!
Cayman is the culinary capital of the Caribbean and prides itself on local and international delicacies. Anything you can ever want, from the local fish fry to a five-star restaurant. Island specialties include jerk chicken, rice and beans, plantains, conch and lobster (when in season). Fine dining is also very prominent on the island and you can find a lot of the local specialties on their menus.
Stingray City is the most exciting attraction on the island. There are many boats that visit Stingray City everyday at affordable rates. Stingray City is located in the middle of the North Sound on top of a sandbar so you’re only standing in about 3-4 feet of water. Dozens of stingrays brush by your legs and if you’re brave enough you can even give them a kiss (which is good luck for 7 years)! For those that don’t care to swim with the stingrays, you are able to stay on the boat and enjoy the gorgeous views!
If you’re a certified diver, there are hundreds of diving adventures to be had. The recently sunk Kittiwake ship in West Bay makes for great diving. Your best bet is to contact one of the local dive shops for more information and to tailor your trip.
Kayaking adventures combine both exercise and fun at the same time. The night time bioluminescent kayak tour located near Rum Point is like nothing you’ve ever seen. Your oars will glow as you move them in the water.
There are all kinds of water activities up-and-down Seven Mile Beach. Anything you can think of including: jet skis, banana boat rides, paddle boarding, WOW balls (walk on water balls), and parasailing. You’ll see water sport stands and you can inquire with them for rates.
How to get here!
Cayman Airways offers direct flights from several major cities in the U.S. American Airlines, United, Delta and British Air also offer several flights to Grand Cayman.
Most hotels are located in the Seven Mile Beach area. All the Solstice events will be located in this area also.
