Hartford Fashion Week launches

(WTNH) – Hartford Fashion Week debuted its debut year on Monday, September 28th. The week is full of different events around Hartford that celebrate fashion with a culmination of runway shows at Union Station on Friday, October 2 – Sunday, October 4th.

The founder of Hartford Fashion Week, Katrina Orsini, was previously one of two managers of Jerry’s Artarama (an art supplier in West Hartford). Jerry’s always had a big hand in supporting Open Studios Hartford and other similar events, and recently Orsini notices a large influx of designers and textile artists trying to sell at a venue not really geared to their needs. It was obviously they needed an outlet of their own.

What’s next:

Thursday Oct 1st – First Thursday Mini Fashion Expo @ The Wadsworth Atheneum

Friday Oct 2nd through Sunday Oct 4th – HFW Runways @ Union Station
