Get Tickets to Next Week’s StyleWeek Fashion Shows
Three nights of fashion shows return to the Rhode Island Convention Center from Sept. 19 to 21.
The most fashionable time of the year is back. StyleWeek Northeast (SWNE) is returning to the Rhode Island Convention Center from Sept. 19 to 21. Tickets are now on sale. Each year, StyleWeek showcases the work of local, national and international designers so they can promote their ideas and inspire others. Founded in 2009, StyleWeek is celebrating a decade of sparking conversation in the fashion industry in the smallest state and helping designers and artists grow.
The show features designs by primarily Providence and Boston natives, such as Angelica Timas, a three-time award-winning Designer of the Year by Boston Fashion Awards, and Zoe Grinfeld, a senior at Rhode Island School of Design whose unconventional style pushes the boundaries of the definition of fashion and has been published in magazines, museums and galleries. Other notable designers include Peach Carr from the windy city of Chicago and Boston-based designer Cornelius Ortiz, both featured on “Project Runway” throughout the years. Designers from Michigan and Pittsburgh will also have their style flaunted on the catwalk.
Each year, StyleWeek connects its designers with current students from participating universities. This year’s SEED: Student Design Challenge is partnering with Mass Art in Boston, showcasing ten talented student designers on the runway on Thursday night. They will be judged by an industry panel of professionals in the field. The experience gives them a glimpse of the working world of fashion and prepares them for the industry. The Saturday night finale shows will be followed by an epic after-party at 10:30 p.m. at the Providence Place parking garage rooftop (North Garage, Level 3)! The purchase of September 21 StyleWeek tickets gains you free entry to the party.
