A Fashion Week For Everyone
The STYLEWEEK Story
Founded in 2009 by Rosanna Ortiz, STYLEWEEK Northeast (SWNE) is New England’s premier fashion week held in Providence, Rhode Island.
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 its inaugural week in 2010.
STYLEWEEK is dedicated to the growth of the designers as artists and the mission of being recognized as a trade event that can provide an economic spark in Rhode Island.
STYLEWEEK also works with elementary schools, high schools, and universities to expose young talent through the “SEED Student Design Challenge,” which is dedicated to advancing emerging student designers and their businesses. STYLEWEEK has had participants from FIT, Parsons, Mass Art, and SFD Boston.
STYLEWEEK Northeast is a fashion week for everyone, where each attendee is a VIP.
