I attended the British Virgin Islands "Summer Sizzle" kickoff event at the Yumi Katsura Showroom in New York City, to celebrate the upcoming 8th Annual Summer Sizzle festivities to take place in the British Virgin Islands from July 13-18, 2016.

The event was hosted by Terry Donovan (Summer Sizzle founder) and Nigel Barker (famed photographer, author and former America's Next Top Model judge)

Summer Sizzle is a fashion and lifestyle event that combines fashion, out of this world celebrity studded parties, as well as island and boating excursions. Simply put, if New York Fashion Week is the place to be in fall and Paris Fashion Week for couture shows in the spring, then the British Virgin Islands is where you need to be in the summer.

Summer Sizzle 2016 will be produced by Signature by Terry Donovan and hosted by Nigel Baker with a special appearance by Golden Globe Winner and star of Empire Taraji P. Henson.

This year's event will highlight top upcoming and established designers like Tracey Reese, Kevan Hall, Cesar Galindo and Carlton Jones Collection.

And if that weren't enough, there's an opportunity for a chance to win a photo shoot with Nigel Barker. How many of us have dreamed about that?!

To enter purchase a BVI Summer Sizzle vacation package and your name will automatically be entered for a chance to win. The photo shoot will take place on July 17th at a secret location on the island. I highly suggest practicing smiling with your eyes now just in case your name is chosen.

And if you think Summer Sizzle is all there is to do in the BVI then you'd be quite mistaken.

The British Virgin Islands is comprised of four major islands consisting of Tortola, the capital, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada, as well as 60 other smaller islands and surrounded by crystal blue Caribbean water making it a perfect backdrop for Summer Sizzle.

With more beaches and shopping areas than you can count, world class dining, dozens of national parks, museums and galleries, daily boating expeditions, as well as an endless list of local festivities it makes the British Virgin Islands a perfect destination for couples and families looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

A bonus, the fact that it hardly ever drops below 80 degrees so you can visit and work on your tan year round.
