However you like to know the latest fashion trends, your dream is to become a model, you love make-up and hair trends or you would like to see how to organize an professional event, this is your week. This week fashion is taking over the city: it is Wilmington Fashion Week!
WFW provides an opportunity to local makeup artists, hair stylists, PR professionals, writers, web designers, photographers, models, videographers, and event producers to work with a full professional fashion production team right here in our hometown. Most importantly, it is a platform for local and regional designers to showcase their work and see their designs fully realized from sketch page to runway.
The fashion week is also about giving back. WFW has partnered with the DREAMS Center for Arts Education. The DREAMS Center provides free after school arts education for qualified students in the Wilmington area. A portion of all WFW’s runway ticket sales goes toward DREAMS’ programming and the continuation of their positive impact on our community. Both benefit, double fun!
Monday night the event started with the kick-off, an opening night with a social in the DREAMS Center for Arts Education and yesterday a film was screening about Dior & I at Thailan Hall. Don’t worry if you missed the first two days, because there is a lot more to look forward to. Already curious? Take a look at the schedule below!
