Fashion Week Brooklyn is right around the corner and it is definitely “bridging fashion and community” once again.

The opening day of the #HauteBrooklyn occasion is on Sunday April 8.

Events and collections are scheduled to run until Saturday April 14.

This week long fashion event is a nonprofit, bi-annual international collection show.

In 2016, it was named the number 5 international fashion event and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams formally named it as “The Official Fashion Week” of the borough.

Fashion Week Brooklyn is known as the place to be to get seen. This applies to all aspects of the fashion industry – designers, models, makeup artists, photographers, interns, stylists, dressers, volunteers, etc.

FWBK provides philanthropic support to charitable organizations and lends awareness to social issues such as human rights, poverty, and community development.

According to the official website, “FWBK is an invitation-only fashion, trade event for the press, buyers and fashion influencers, taking place in the borough of Brooklyn; where influential bloggers, trend-setting retailers and celebrities connect directly with fashion designers and innovative brands.

“FWBK connects the general public to fashion by hosting several public events during the Fashion Week; panel discussions, pop-up shops, outdoor runway shows, in spaces such as art galleries, restaurants, boutiques and spas.”
