StyleWeek Northeast: January 19-25

style week1Since 2009, StyleWeek has presented more than 55 emerging designers in Providence!

The biannual fashion show kicks off on Saturday night, January 18th with a special event at the Providence Biltmore. Organized in partnership with the American Heart Association of Southern New England, the 4th annual Red on the Runway is a design challenge that raises awareness about cardiovascular disease. StyleWeek designers create one-of-a-kind red looks that are modeled by individuals who have been impacted by the disease, and then judged by a panel of industry experts. It starts with cocktails from 5:30 to 7, followed by the runway show. General seating is $40, second row seating is $75, and front row seating costs $100.

The rest of the week will be just as inspiring! Each night starts with an accessory showcase on the 17th and 18th floors of the Biltmore at 5:30 PM. Find more details about the schedule at
