Fashion Week Cleveland 2011/2012

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 Hosptial, Cleveland Public Library, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Intermuseum Conservation Association, Hard Rock Cafe – 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 2011/2012 (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 andparties; Cleveland’s fashion week incorporates exhibits, films, lectures, and workshops at cultural and educational institutions throughout the city.

The vast selection of learning opportunities have included a seminar covering the form and function of space suits by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Glenn Research Center, Ursuline College’s historical presentation on the influence of the military on fashion, the International Women’s Air & Space Museum discussion on WASPs in WWI, and a special appearance by Cleveland architect and Tuskegee Airman Arthur Saunders.  FWC’s Art & Cultural Educational Programming was held at the Capitol Theater and will be held in the Chisholm Halle Costume Wing museum at the Western Reserve Historical Society in 2012.

The Cleveland Fashion Show – black tie gala is FWC’s grand finale featuring top American designers.  This event features collegiate and professional designers from across the United States.  The event will be Saturday, May 7 at the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum in University Circle.

Cleveland is a city of collegiate, cultural, and medical institutions.  Our fashion week is a reflection of the city it represents.  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.
