|Welcome to the 9th Annual... Fashion Week CLEVELAND!|
Who knew fashion could be this powerful? Fashion Week Cleveland, armed with the creations of a wide array of talented designers, will bring together a dizzying array of organizations within the city. Past participants have included the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital, Cleveland Public Library, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Inter-museum Conservation Association, Hard Rock Cafe - Music Costumes Collection, Museum of Natural History, Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, and the Chisholm Halle Costume Wing of the Western Reserve Historical Society. What is it about Fashion Week Cleveland (FWC) that compels such a diverse group of organizations to participate in the event? The answer has a great deal to do with FWC’s main focus as "the educational fashion week”, a driving force that has made FWC one of the top industry events in the United States.
This annual convention and conference does not limit itself to runway shows and parties; Cleveland's fashion week incorporates exhibits, films, lectures, and workshops at cultural and educational institutions throughout the city. FWC serves to inform consumers and industry leaders of the cultural importance and economic contributions of the fashion industry and that is why leading industry "bible" Women’s Wear Daily calls us “…a regional phenomenon that’s become the nation’s third largest fashion week after New York and Los Angeles”.
Cleveland is known for its 3M's; music, medicine, and museums. Cleveland's fashion week is a reflection of the city from which it comes. Something that is uniquely Cleveland… reserved, educational, and intelligent. This deepening of Fashion Week Cleveland’s strategic vision has made us absolutely unique and truly innovative, and we believe those who sponsor and partner with Fashion Week Cleveland will share in our success. Cleveland... a smart city, on a Great Lake.
