Williamsburg Fashion Weekend
Williamsburg Fashion Weekend’s 8th season will be held on February 18th and 19th at Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. WFW provides a platform for young and emerging fashion designers who push the boundaries of design, presentation, production, ultimately re-evaluating the fashion industry as a whole. Past participants have shown us there are many creative ways to be ‘green’ through recouturing, upcycling, recycling, eco-friendliness,transparent business practices, and artisan techniques. This season will be a feast for the audience’s eyes, ears, hearts, and minds. Shows run the gamut from fashion as conceptual art to ready-to-wear and incorporate live music, theater, and dance. The shows are always raw, experimental and forward thinking. Arthur Arbit, founder and curator of WFW, a designer and artist himself, has a passion for the unwavering, personal take-no-prisoners aesthetic vision, exploring new ways to present fashion design and fashion business practices.
Doors open at 8 pm. This event is open to the public, so come early to secure your spot. First Designer will show at 9pm sharp. Open bar at 8 pm courtesy Southern Comfort. Entry is $8 at the door.
