Abstract

Regional fashion weeks provide a platform for smaller-scale designers and students to jumpstart their brand and showcase their collections publicly. Fashion weeks provide designers experience and insight to the industry, as well as design and marketing advice. The authors will highlight the advantages and disadvantages of student participation and share evaluative narratives of students who have participated in regional fashion shows while students at their institution.
