THE HIGH FASHION EDITION

Picture from Season 3

Viewers are in for a spectacular season of Mission Catwalk as the dramatic creations showcase the uninhibited talent of our regional designers. Dubbed ‘The High Fashion Edition’, season four will allow designers to create one-of-a-kind pieces in every episode based on different challenge themes set by the producers. The hour-long series comprises of four segments in each episode: the challenge, the design production, the runway show, and the elimination. Season four will feature designers from Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, and Guyana battling for the top prize to show a collection at Milan Fashion Week, the home of Italian ‘high fashion’.  The winning designer will be whisked away to Milan courtesy of our sponsor CAMPARI and will be hosted by The Campari Group for a tour of Milan.

Mission Catwalk has partnered with The University of Technology, Jamaica and is now filmed on location at the new Fashion Design facility on the university campus. Mission Catwalk continues to nurture emerging design talent and will provide a scholarship to study fashion design courtesy of the University of Technology.
