On Monday night, the rooftop lounge of the chic Betsy Hotel in South Beach Miami was the venue for the launch of the second season of ‘Caribbean’s Next Top Model’ (‘CNTM’).

The event was attended by movers and shakers in the fashion industry, all with their own take on the ‘Caribbean Flair’ dress code. The Caribbean reality show is based on the successful staging of ‘America’s Next Top Model’.

This regional programme follows the stories of young women seeking to launch careers in the competitive world of modelling. The brainchild of host and producer Wendy Fitzwilliam – former Miss Universe, model and entrepreneur -the series is aimed at celebrating all things ‘girly’ and the power of womanhood with telecoms giant FLOW as premier sponsor.

According to Fitzwilliam: “It is so refreshing when a corporate entity recognises the need for support and undertakes the responsibility of enabling the development of Caribbean talent and content. FLOW has definitely got it right. With FLOW, more ‘CNTM’ fans will get a wholesome entertainment experience, one that is as interactive and engaging as possible,” she stated.

John Reid, president of C&W Communications Consumer Group, operators of FLOW, was just as excited about the partnership as he spoke fondly about his time in the Caribbean and the immense amount of talent and creativity in the region.

“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Wendy Fitzwilliam and her ‘Caribbean’s Next Top Model’ team. We are not just committed, but we are also proud to support Caribbean producers who generate quality local content for the region,” Reid ended.
