This year the Riga Fashion Week celebrates its 20th anniversary. It’s the biggest fashion event in the Baltic states and takes place in the central of Latvia from April 1st to April 5th 2014. The prêt-à-porter fashion festival has been organized by the Baltic Fashion Federation since 2004 and it presents the best Latvian and international designers twice a year.

To celebrate the anniversary, the RFW is going to take place in a new and luxurious place. The 5th floor of the so-called central of fashion, the “Podium”. The Podium is a sophisticated and spacious 5-story mall with worldwide known brands (e.g. Baldinini, Emilio Pucci,Valentino, Cavalli, Bottega Veneta, Michael Kors, DKNY, Dior, Chanel just to mention some of them). The new place is modern, bigger and functional so that it’s more comfortable for the participants and the audience

There were some remarkable highlights at the previous Fashion Week when I take a look at the  collections for spring and summer. Amoralle, a Latvian label who creates stockings as well as silk and nightwear offered a unique feast for the eye, emphasizing the female beauty. Amoralle is characterized by their high quality and the implementation of latest trends.

For the designer of the label QooQoo, the local production of clothing and the respect for humans and nature is very important. Her collection is made far from mass production and attracts with simple silhouettes and self-made humorous printings on clothing for him and her.

We really look forward and can’t wait to see which designera are going to present their collections for the fall and winter 2014/15 at the Fashion Week Riga and how they implement their visions of fashion.
