Organizers strive to make VFW more designer-friendly
May '14
In their constant endeavour to make the Valencia Fashion Week (VFW) more designer friendly, the organizers of the event are now planning to introduce some new categories to promote young design talents.
In the forthcoming September, 2014 event, the organizers will host two new platforms—Zone D (a competition dedicated solely to the up and coming designers) and Project (an avenue that will invite final course projects from fashion design students).
Headed by Tatay Salas, the VFW organizing team will also create a Showroom area for both retailers and designers who wish to exhibit and sell their creations through separate spaces at the event, which will showcase collections for the spring/summer 2015 season.
For the past few months, the fashion week organizers have been making continuous efforts to revamp the bi-annual soiree. In the previous 16th edition, the organizers had embraced some changes to make the event more cost-effective for the participants.
In order to make the fashion do less crowded, new venues with tighter seating capacities, to accommodate specific industry insiders with real interest in fashion such as buyers and trade press, were introduced.
Also some cultural venues and a centralized space were added to provide more options for the participants to organize their shows on different backdrops with varied personalized themes, based on their catwalk collections.
In addition to the runway shows, a fashion festival showcasing every aspect of the Valencian design industry, including creations from new talents, was organized at the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències in Valencia.
