The fourteenth RIGA FASHION WEEK that will take place from March 30 till April 2, 2011, in the exhibition hall „Riga Art Space” will present the fashion trends of the next autumn/winter season. The backbone of the RFW participants will be the leading Latvian designers, who are the face of the Latvian fashion today, - Katya Shehurina, Natalija Jansone, Zanete Auzina, Atis Artemjevs, Aleksandrs Pavlovs, Anita Altmane, Sarmite Ostanevica and fashion brands „Narciss” (designed by Alise Trautmane, the Designer of the Year 2010 in Latvia) and „QooQoo” (the Debut of the Year 2010 in Latvian fashion; designed by Alyona Bauska).
RIGA FASHION WEEK presents to the public not only the works of local couturiers, but also the collections of perspective designers from the neighbouring Baltic countries and eminent fashion designers from other European countries, this way creating the platform for exchange of experience and new contacts. Thus, during the spring session of RIGA FASHION WEEK the young and promising talents – the finalist of the Lithuanian competition for young designers “Injection 2010” Kristel Kuslapuu from Estonia, and fashion brand D.Efect, established in London by the team of the Lithuanian designers, - will show their collections. Every day the sequence of the designers` defiles is crowned by the fashion show of the Honour Guest of the Fashion week, whose talent and success is recognized by the world’s fashion professionals. This time the Honour Guests of RFW will be SULTAN (France), Victoria Gres (Ukraine) and Tom Rebl (Italy).
Having already become the legendary project of the Latvian fashion industry - RIGA FASHION WEEK started its history in 2004. During this period RFW has discovered and presented to the public the names of many talented designers who are the stars of the first magnitude of the fashion industry in Latvia today.
