Hamilton is stepping up to the plate in a big way this coming June, with the introduction of the 1st annual Hamilton Fashion Week! A collaborative effort from some of Hamilton’s own, Hamilton Fashion Week will bring a new level of strength and creativity to the city. Aiming to fill the gap in Hamilton’s fashion, makeup and hairstyling community, HFW will bring awareness to the incredible talent that is our designers, models, makeup artists and hairstylists. It kicked off today with an introductory street fashion show hosted by the James St. General Store.
Hamilton Fashion Week will span over 6 days from June 16th to the 21st, with multiple events designed to showcase various aspects of Hamilton’s vast fashion scene. Beginning with an opening night bash to mix and mingle with all of the best and brightest in Hamilton fashion, then followed by a discovery night where top agents will be scouting for the next big thing! The fun continues with a hair and makeup expo on the 18th and then two straight days of live street fashion on James St. North. Designers will be presenting their collections via live art mannequin exhibits and guerrilla style shows. Expect buskers, artists, and groundbreaking fashion. All of the events lead up to the incredibly exciting Gala Fashion Show set in Hamilton’s historic Christ’s Church Cathedral where models will strut down the runway wearing some of the most affluent designs that Hamilton has to offer.
Hamilton Fashion Week will be a major milestone for the city of Hamilton and I could not be more excited to be able to blog about it and share everything with you! I will be attending the events and reporting back with all of the excitement.
