Sashay in San Jose: Fashion Week is Approaching

Starting on August 8th, 2013, the most important fashion industry event for Costa Rica will unfold over four days in San Jose. Costa Rica Fashion Week 2013 is more than just models sashaying down a runway; it is an important trade event for a billion dollar fashion industry that is beginning to take flight in our country.

cr-fashion-week-2013-4-516x340Costa Rica is currently the style hub of Central America, and fashion industry leaders would like to see it stay that way. The Costa Rica Fashion Week event is primarily a meeting event for designers, merchants, schools, and students to learn about new trends and methodologies. Despite the country’s ongoing loss of its once-vibrant textile and clothes manufacturing industry to countries where lower salaries and inadequate working conditions run rampant, the fashion industry leaders in Costa Rica believe that this nation has what it takes to participate in the global fashion stage.

From Thursday, August 8th until Sunday, August 11th, the Antigua Aduana (Old Customs) building in San Jose will host a series of runway shows, style expo, industry workshops, press conferences, and fashion industry discussions. Designers from all over Central America, Mexico, and Colombia will display outfits, jewelry and accessories. Not everything will be Pret a Porter (ready-to-wear), there will also be some haute couture (high fashion) and conceptual designs to admire.

The serious, business-minded content of Costa Rica Fashion Week 2013 will be conducted by the Ministry of Labor, the National Institute of Learning (INA in Spanish), the Textile Chamber of Industry in Costa Rica (CATECO), and others. The ongoing success of Costa Rica Fashion Week has been due to the hard work of Tica supermodel Leonora Jimenez, whose work has been recently profiled by the Costa Rica Star.

Some of the sponsors of this event include Cosmopolitan Latin America104.7 HIT FM, and Costa Rica’s Ministry of Culture and Youth Affair.  To find out more about the event, follow #CRFW2013 on Twitter.
