Three days of runway fashion
Panama will celebrate the 13th year since the launching of its grand annual fashion event, Fashion Week Panama (FWP) on Thursday, October 10, Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12. Born of the creative team at Physical Modelos, the event has grown to become a staple in the industry regionally, showcasing Panama’s active fashion design scene, promoting new talent, and attracting designers from throughout Latin America and the Caribbean that seek exposure.
This year the organizers report that some 30 designers will participate. The event also incorporates an exposition area where attendees can browse the latest fashion, beauty and entertainment trends between runway shows.
In a space new to FWP, called “Le Petit Bazaar,” pieces will be offered by the designers showing at the event. This is the first year that direct designer sales have been made possible, thanks to sponsorship by Visa Citi and MultiPlaza.
