Michigan Fashion Week is proud to welcome many types of talented emerging fashion brands to our shows — i.e. Womenswear, Menswear, and Couture. Jewelry and accessory designers are also extremely encouraged to showcase a line as well. Established retail brands may present their collections at our shows as MFW is open to consumers as well as the fashion industry.
If you are a talented fashion designer, please do not hesitate to contact us through the form that can be found on this page. Rest assured that your inquiry will be handled by highly trained professionals. We will get back to you as soon as possible, with all the information that you need.
Womenswear, Menswear, Couture, Jewelry, Accessories, are all very different lines of work in the fashion world. That is why we have specialized professionals for all lines of work in this industry, and your inquiry will be handled by the most appropriate one. For us, your line, work and your success matters very much, and that is why Michigan Fashion Week will make sure that a professional that knows all about your line of work will handle your questions.
Many talented artists create very impressive designs, but they don't get out to the world because they don't have professionals to handle their brands and exposure. This is where Michigan Fashion Week comes in. We will do our best to make sure that your designs will not just sit there gathering dust in your workshop, but your brand and your work will be brought to the eyes of the entire world.
We truly believe that exposure to the media and to the people that are interested in fashion is one of the key parts of establishing a successful brand. As a designer, you probably already know that even though you have created very interesting pieces, you also need a good marketing plan that will bring actual clients to you. Well, this is one of the numerous things that Michigan Fashion Week can do for you. We handle marketing campaigns with professionalism and make sure that your products get exposed to a huge number of potential clients.
We do welcome already established designers, or talented designers that are just "peeking" into the world of fashion. However, depending on where you are right now on the road to success, different approaches must be used to create a successful marketing and exposure campaign. Michigan Fashion Week will make sure that your brand and your work will be handled in the most appropriate way, so that you will get the exposure and success that you seek.
For inquiries and any other questions, please contact us.
There will be a special presentation for student designers, contact us for more information.
