Styleweek Northeast returns to Providence

New England’s premier fashion week to showcase 13th season of emerging designers September 20 through 23

Posted

The 13th season of Styleweek Northeast will feature the Spring 2018 collections from designers from around the country, including new additions Yona Love, a designer with inclusive sizing; Chicago-based Deanna Marie; Masen Fox, classic contemporary vintage-inspired menswear; and Chevalier Homme, timeless fashion for men created in an socially-conscious manner.

Shows will all be held between 5 and 9 p.m. in the Piper & Sky runway room in the west lobby of the Rhode Island Convention Center.

Styleweek Northeast’s Seed: Innovation Meets Education Student Competition also returns this season. Through Seed, Stylewook works directly with colleges and universities to identify the most driven design talent to partake in this competition, giving them their first experience of a professional trade runway show and an opportunity to learn how to cultivate their brand in the industry.

This season’s Challenge will showcase five student designers from RISD, Parsons School of Design, Mass Art, and more, who will create a three-piece capsule collection which will then be judged by a panel of industry insiders. The winner will receive $1,000 towards continuing his or her education or to fund their business.
