As in past years, attendees are encouraged to wear the Jamaican national colors of Black, Gold and Green to demonstrate their patriotic pride. A variety of vibrant and creative designs is expected to inspire, impress and amaze as bold statements are made by fashionistas dressed in their “colors”.   Advance tickets are on sale at selected Caribbean outlets for $5.00; prices will be $10.00 at the gate day of the event.
