The team of John Hunte and Adzil Stuart will once again rock the fashion runway at BMEX 2013 – An Explosion of Bajan Spirit. Always an annual crowd pleaser, this year’s fashion shows will be held nightly in the Furniture & Design Pavilion at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre from June 28th – 30th. Now in its seventh year with John Hunte and Adzil Stuart as its producers, it will be and All-Star year featuring some of the fashion and accessories designers and models that have emerged through this process.
Promoting the development of local business and providing opportunities to showcase local talent form part of the mandate of the Barbados Manufacturer’s Association. From seasoned businesses to budding entrepreneurs, the BMA puts its time and resources behind developing local talent. And where better to find great local talent than the Barbados Community College. According to Alan Lowe of the BCC “Every year students develop well-executed portfolio projects with great commercial potential. Unfortunately, because of a lack of opportunities and guidance, many of these ideas and projects fall by the wayside without a fighting chance. Therefore, our Incubator Project with the BMA provides the environment and opportunities for these projects to possibly move from ideas to market.”
BMEX, Barbados’ premiere manufacturers’ exhibition, presents a unique opportunity to see Bajan innovation at work. Every year, new entrepreneurs as well as longstanding producers use this exhibition as a platform to unveil new products and introduce them to those who visit the four-day event at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
