I’m beyond excited to be walking for the 2015 Haiti Fashion Week Preview, as they hit the Chicago runway for the VERY first time. Please save the date and come out for an exciting time. Fashion Focus CHICago will shine a spotlight on the windy city’s fashion industry with a huge celebration!
One day I’d love to travel to Haiti for Fashion Week. The 4th Edition Haiti Fashion Week 2015 in Port-au-Prince has been announced. The theme for the week is Nourrir Haïti (Nurture Haiti). Visit the Haiti Sentinel for dates.
Haitian top designers have been invited to preview during Fashion Focus CHICago, the City of Chicago’s celebration of fashion, with a goal to showcase beautiful designs and educate the audience about Haitian culture and art through 500 years.
Advance tickets purchase via Eventbrite required due to limited available seating. –
