Provo Fashion Week

When: Fri., Oct. 10 2014

Influenced by such fashion meccas as New York and Paris, smaller cities like Salt Lake City and now Provo have launched their own Fashion Weeks in recent years. Provo Fashion Week was created by local designers Bree Wilkins and Natalie Workman, who operate their own fashion event and marketing firm. The second Provo Fashion Week will showcase the work of 19 different designers in three separate shows. You might think of Utah County fashion as more along the lines of missionary suits and other similarly conservative apparel, but the lines the designers will be showing encompass a wide range of styles, from formalwear to casual and sportswear. Given the local fascination with genealogy, a number of the designers incorporate elements from their ancestral heritage, as well as influences from other disciplines: visual arts and even comic-book culture. The event promises to be an eclectic and eye-opening celebration of fashion. (Brian Staker)
