Fashion Week Brooklyn (FW|BK) is a bi-annual international collection show founded by the 501(c)(3) nonprofit BK|Style Foundation (BK|SF). FW|BK has emerged as one of the leading fashion events showcasing the talent of aspiring and established designers from across the globe. This year, the following elected officials will make a guest appearance as models: Assembly Member Latrice Walker, Assembly Member Pamela Harris and Senator Jesse Hamilton. Attendees include a diverse spectrum of socially conscious, influential, fashion-forward men and women.
On March 4, 2014, Brooklyn’s Borough President Eric Adams formally endorsed Fashion Week Brooklyn as The Official Fashion Week of the borough and the event is widely recognized as Brooklyn’s premier fashion event.
Established in 2006, BK|SF has devoted each season of FW|BK to support charitable organizations including the Soles4Souls Foundation, MTV Staying Alive Foundation, Art In Motion Show, Denim Day NYC and Colel Chabad.
