Fire & Ash, a charity gala event organized by Vincentian international model Colin Ash, will still take place for the first time on the shores of his homeland, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. First scheduled for Buccama on the Bay on Saturday 25, the event will now take place on Saturday, October 2.
The Vincentian native, who has been running his charity event in Barbados for the past three years, has great hopes for the fashion show here in St. Vincent.
“I always wanted to do something here,” Ash explained to BuzZ on Tuesday.
According to Ash, his show, which has been pumping some 70,000 dollars into Barbadian charities for the past three years, will focus on aiding youth, the environment and the cancer society here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Ash, originally from Barrouallie, boasted that since his Fire & Ash show is widely viewed by thousands live on the World Wide Web the date had to be pushed back to ensure that online viewers were ably accommodated.
“It is known as an international fashion show and it comes with a lot of prestige,” Ash said. And, to add to that prestige and glamour, there will be some international models from the Forde, Neo, and Hugho Boss modelling agencies who are expected to criss-cross the runway at Buccama on the Bay.
According to Ash, the presence of Sky T.V., National Geographic magazine, Fashion and Music Television, Tony Lopez, a fashion photographer for Sony Music, will do well in providing good promotion for SVG. “We really want to sell St. Vincent, that’s the main thing,” Ash stated.
Ash, who has represented major international fashion houses like Polo, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Banana Republic and Levis, explained that this is his way of giving back to his native St. Vincent. He is, however, hoping that as many local businesses can get on board and support the charitable effort.
