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.
