Founded in 2009 by Rosanna M. Ortiz, STYLEWEEK was created with the vision of connecting the community, local buyers and press with fashion design. A biannual fashion week focused on the business of fashion, STYLEWEEK is a professional production which includes formal fashion runway shows and is the only regional fashion week that has been visited by the CFDA (Councils of Fashion Designers of America).
STYLEWEEK has showcased over 130 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 well as the mission of being recognized as a trade event that can provide an economic spark in Northeast and beyond. STYLEWEEK works with colleges/universities to expose young talent through our SEED Student Design Competition. The parent company of STYLEWEEK is SEED: Innovation Meets Education,501(c)(3), which is dedicated to the advancement of emerging designers and their business.
By incorporating local, national and international designers, we are 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/services. This focus helps to generate revenue and expand both brand and company awareness through all STYLEWEEK events.
Being a part of this fashion week puts your brands 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.
STYLEWEEK prides itself on making our partners number one. We provide an experience that parallels NYFW in regards to production, venue choice, photography, operations and promotion. STYLEWEEK has received millions of media impressions, print and online, through its events. Not only does this benefit STYLEWEEK, but also the designers who show with us. Since our inaugural event, STYLEWEEK has compiled 12.2 million print impressions and 27.4 million online impressions from regional and national publications such as Forbes, Southwest Airlines Magazine and Marie Claire Magazine.
