Kansas City Fashion Week is a nexus of fashion professionals. Featuring local, national and international designers, each year KCFW produces two full weeks of premier runway shows, enabling designers to collaborate with seasoned stylists, make-up artists, models and photographers to present their collections in the most professional atmosphere imaginable.
Kansas City has a rich history of fashion success. In the late 1940s Kansas City’s Garment District employed over 4,000 people and boasted that 1 out of every 7 women in the United States purchased garments made in Kansas City. In the successful production of over ten fashion week seasons, KCFW has helped refocus the region’s attention to the commercial possibilities of a revitalized apparel design and manufacturing industry.
