Founded in 2009, STYLEWEEK Northeast (SWNE) is New England’s premier fashion week that is held in Providence, Rhode Island. The bi-annual fashion week was created with the vision of connecting the community, regional, and national press with fashion design. STYLEWEEK is a federal non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to the growth and expansion of design in the state of Rhode Island.
The need for a high quality fashion production at an affordable cost in the northeast, led to the birth of STYLEWEEK. Inspired by fashion capitals of the world, STYLEWEEK is a professional production that includes fashion runway shows and focuses on the business of fashion and promoting art and design. SWNE is one of the only regional fashion weeks that have been visited by the CFDA (Councils of Fashion Designers of America) from NYC.
STYLEWEEK has showcased over 192 designers from all over the U.S. on its runway since it’s inaugural week in 2010. STYLEWEEK is dedicated to the growth of the designers as artists, as well as the mission of being recognized as a trade event that can provide an economic spark in Rhode Island.
In addition, STYLEWEEK also works with elementary schools, high schools and universities to expose young talent through the “SEED Student Design Challenge”, which is dedicated to the advancement of emerging student designers and their businesses. Most react, STYLEWEEK partnered with Lincoln School where 3 of their students constructed one-piece using STEM as influence for their garment.
By incorporating local, national, and international designers, STYLEWEEK is able to provide an experience that is highly in demand, as well as providing an avenue for other brands to showcase and promote their products or services. This focus helps to generate revenue and expand both brand and company awareness through STYLEWEEK Northeast fashion weeks.
Being a part of this fashion week puts your brand’s message in front of a rich demographic of both male and female. STYLEWEEK demographics encompass influential people in the fashion industry, as well as visionary business owners, political figures, respected media, celebrities, esteemed vendors, local businesses sponsors and the community.
