Since the days of the Renaissance, Harlem has served as the epicenter of art, literature, music and fashion. As Harlem is being revitalized in the 21st century, Harlem Fashion Week will introduce a new era of fashion culture to the Harlem community inspired by its rich cultural heritage. Our continuous goal is to produce an event that will showcase the fashion industry, provide business education for emerging designers, grow Harlem businesses and create a platform for diversity in fashion.
HARLEM FASHION WEEK (HFW) will bridge the Downtown fashion hub to the Uptown swagg for a rich cultural experience.
Harlem Fashion Week has created a platform for the rising stars in the Fashion Design Industry. We have been fortunate to receive a wide diversity of press from over 100 major media publications like Vogue Italia, Paper Magazine, The Root.com, Refinery 29, Racked.com, The New Yorker, Essence, Fashion Week Online, Getty Images to local media outlets like AfrofusionTV, Urban Girl Mag, Spoken Black Girl.
