The 38th RIGA FASHION WEEK has ended


The spring session of the fashion week took place from April 8th to 11th under the motto "fashion is art" and continued the theme of ethics and sustainable development. The program included over 17 brands, among which there are debutants, renowned Latvian brands, and international labels. Additionally, this season, special attention was given to exhibitions, bridging the boundaries between the fashion industry and visual arts.

The opening of the fashion week in Riga was marked by a seminar and panel discussion on the topic of "Conscious Fashion Today" in collaboration with the department store Stockmann. Latvian and international industry experts participated in it.

On the second day of RFW, April 9th, the shows took place in a new unexpected location - the office complex Verde. In urban spaces, designer Jekaterina Shehurina from the Katya Katya brand presented a collection of wedding dresses in a new interpretation. The Latvian brand Verens demonstrated seamless products based on modern sewing technology. Meanwhile, designer Anna Kruz (Anna Kruz brand), aiming to express feminine variability and elegance, resorted to classic silhouettes complemented by provocative details and metallic materials. On the same day, guests of the event had the opportunity to acquaint themselves with collections from debutants from three Baltic countries - Rimgailaite Costume (Lithuania), Henna (Latvia), ABFD Swimwear (Estonia).

On the main podium of the capital, mammoth brands of Latvian fashion showcased current trends - Iveta Vecmane, Natalija Jansone, Selina Keer, Una Bērziņa, BAE by Katya Shehurina, Dobrzanska, as well as Ivo Nikkolo from Estonia. In turn, Stockmann presented the results of a joint collaboration with Finnish designer Miia Halmesmaa.

The program of the Riga Fashion Week this season was rich in exhibitions featuring visual, textile, and decorative arts. The organizers aimed to acquaint guests of the event not only with fashion trends but also with the creativity of talents in related art industries. Following this initiative, the RFW program includes a screening of a film about the work of designer Alexander McQueen, timed to coincide with the designer's 55th birthday. Additionally, the image of the current RFW is inspired by the theatrical and dramatic aesthetics of the collections of the famous designer and is created with the help of artificial intelligence.
