Note the Space, Book This Date: Fashion Face of the Caribbean 13.03.2011

One of Jamaica’s most celebrated historical landmarks, Devon House Heritage Site, which is the architectural brainchild of Jamaica’s first black millionaire, George Stiebel, would have obviously attracted the attention of Saint International as it is one of those places that is distinctly Jamaican that will make for the perfect venue with just the right setting to host a distinctly Jamaican fashion show. After all, that is what the visitors come to see - a Jamaican fashion show.

The East Verandah at Devon House overlooks the East Lawn where the event will be held

The lawns of this mansion that has history dating back to the 17th century has become home to some of SI's most prestigious events, Style Week Jamaica, Fashion Face of the Caribbean, among others. Our most recent event - Model Citizen - held for SI's historic feature in the prestigious V-Man Magazine as one of the 12 Best Men's Modelling Agencies in the WORLD (the first and only Caribbean agency ever so featured) was held in the Formal Garden. So the pair seems to work - the historic heritage site buzzing with the beats of a historic SI achievement. The mansion has a rich cultural history and SI, also creating history for itself, supports this site, helping to maintain its viability as the island’s premier historical mansion. Now we feel as historic as the house and lawns themselves!

Fashion Face of the Caribbean's 2011 staging returns to it's favourite Devon House spot, the East Lawn, on March 13 and as all SI events are, this one promises to be no less glamorous! Prepare to be wowed as the show unfolds...

Devon House's "Stiebel was among three wealthy Jamaicans who constructed elaborate homes during the late 19th century at the corner of Trafalgar Road and Hope Road, which fittingly became known as the Millionaires Corner...Stiebel’s legacy lives on with the beautifully maintained Devon House, which was declared a national monument in 1990 by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust." - Devon House website
