St. Lucian designer and fashion model Vincent McDoom who was among key players in one of the new components of the now revamped Jazz and Arts Festival is set to take the spotlight on the international stage.

He is set to take on a major role in one of the biggest international fashion trade shows, Labo Ethnik Fashion and Lifestyle, which will take place from May 22nd - 26th in Paris.

The trade show, which is into its 8th season, is open to all professional confirmed designers, but it will also host an emerging talent contest which is open to talented hopeful from around the globe. The emerging designer showcase will take place on May 24th and is under the artistic direction of Vincent McDoom, who will also be casting the models.

An ex-assistant to designer Marc Jacobs from his days at Louis Vuitton, McDoom is being boasted as the pioneer behind St. Lucia's Hot Couture event held last year and is a permanent judge on Russia's Next Top Model. He's also been involved in France's and Poland's Next Top Model, and appeared as a guest judge on Germany's Next Top Model.

With a passion for highlighting Caribbean talent, McDoom said, "This is a huge opportunity for Caribbean models and designers alike to network and be seen." McDoom has also confirmed three models from his homeland, St. Lucia; the first time St. Lucia will be represented at the show. Designer from St. Lucia, Lyn Bristol will also be attending.

McDoom has plans for a fashion event for the Caribbean after he wraps his 3rd movie, later this year.
