This year kicks off the third Haiti fashion week, which will run from October 30th to November 2nd at the Karibe Hotel Convention Center in Petion-Ville. Haiti Fashion Week is an opportunity for the country’s designers and Haitian designers abroad to leverage their talent to revitalize the nation’s fashion industry, attract distributors and retailers, and stimulate business growth.
Every September in New York City, fashion week is one of the hottest activities in fashion globally and Haiti will continue in it’s attempts to leverage a similar forum to host runway shows produced by native designers.
I will update you on the confirmed designers and artist as soon as they become available. In the meantime follow HFW on Facebook and twitter for updates. Check out fellow Haitian blogger H. Mystique for more information about the designers and the schedule for the week.
Inside are a few pictures from the September 8th press conference announcing the event.
