"I am very moved by our collaboration with Vancouver Fashion Week, which will expose the Supermodel of the Bahamas winners to a new market and media. We've had previous winners walk in shows in the USA, but this is our first time in Canada," said Oilinsha Coakley, CEO of Oilnsha's Models and Talent Management  / Founder, Supermodel of the Bahamas.

Robbin Whachell, Editor, Co-founder, TheBahamasWeekly.com helped facilitate the collaboration as media sponsors of the search, and recently met with Vancouver Fashion Week's production team to go over the details. "We are excited to be able to assist with this initiative," she said."Models are different the world over, and Bahamian beauty is truly one-of-a-kind. It's wonderful to afford these models the opportunity of being seen on the world stage."

"We are very excited to collaborate with Supermodel of the Bahamas and The Bahamas Weekly to showcase Bahamian talent and link them with international designers," said Jamal Abdourahman, Founder / Producer, Vancouver Fashion Week.

Vancouver Fashion Week is a diverse and innovative fashion experience that features both emerging and established designers and actively seeks out to showcase international award-winning designers from over 30 global fashion capitals. This bi-annual six day event is attended by over 20,000 guests, including industry professionals, buyers, media, and VIP's. The Spring/Summer 2014 season showcase will be held from September 16th to 21st.  The shows will be streamed live online, so anyone anywhere will be able to tune in.

Supermodel of the Bahamas is the #1 model search in the country which discovers new faces. Candidates are trained and pushed to perform, whereupon it becomes obvious after photo shoots, runway shows, and interviews, who is made for the life of a model.
