Over 14 new and emerging fashion designers and 7 of the most exciting bands from Brooklyn. 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 that there are many creative ways to be “green” through re-couturing, upcycling, recycling, eco-friendliness, artisan techniques, and transparent business practices. This season will be a feast for the audience’s eyes, ears, hearts and minds. Shows will run the gamut from fashion as conceptual art to ready-to-wear, incorporating live music, theatre and dance, 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 re-evaluating fashion industry business practices.
