The British Virgin Islands is sizzling.

Summer Sizzle BVI is launching its 10th Anniversary Celebration under the slogan Rebuild, Restore, Revive the BVI and inspire the next generation.

The event, which has risen to become the region’s premier fashion and lifestyle event, takes over the BVI with a four-day lineup of events, highlights of which include Global Glamour Runway Show and White & Wakanda Fashion Gala.

This year the team has collaborated with The Virgin Islands School of Technical Studies and has introduced a series of workshops set for Friday July 27th that highlights the youths community’s interest in the world of fashion, hairstyling, makeup and photography as a way of giving back the community after the devastation of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Workshop topics include “Making a Brand,” “Principles of Hair Design,” “Makeup Seminar” and “What’s the Story,” a class in creating narrative through photography.

A number of Tortola properties have signed on to partner with the event as host hotels, from Maria’s by the Sea to the Fort Recovery Resort, with the latter featuring the event’s VIP stays.
