Rebecca Strim, 18, was born in Belize and has only four years of fashion designing under her belt. She is a self-taught designer who attempted to study fashion at The Art Institute of Vancouver, but now has the amazing opportunity to partake in Mission Catwalk, a Jamaican reality series that airs on TVJ.
This is a great opportunity for Rebecca to promote both Belize’s fashion and tourism industries. She and fifteen designers from around the Caribbean are competing for enviable prizes on the second season of the fashion design reality series. The lucky winner will receive: • An opportunity to show a collection at the London Fashion Week 2012. • $500K Cash prize. • Industrial sewing equipment • A contract to sell their designs at SOHO Boutique. • A six-page fashion editorial in Ocean Style Magazine. • A scholarship to pursue fashion program at London College of Fashion • A scholarship to study tailoring at Savile Row Academy in London.
The show’s purpose is to find and develop talent and when it first aired it focused solely on Jamaican talent, but for season two the show sought a more regional audience.
