Bucharest Fashion Week

The Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana becomes one of the institutional partners
from Bucharest Fashion Week

The Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana becomes one of the institutional partners at the first edition of the Bucharest Fashion Week event that will take place in the fall of this year.

CNMI, organizer of Milan Fashion Week, is the entity that coordinates and promotes Italian fashion. The organization represents the highest cultural values of Italian fashion and is meant to protect, coordinate and amplify its image both in Italy and around the world. Through this support, the first fashion event in Bucharest acquires unprecedented legitimacy and scope in Romania.

The aim of Bucharest Fashion Week is to connect designers, buyers, fashion publications, mass media, manufacturers and academics, in order to develop the fashion industry in Romania, but also in the region.

BFW will bring together not only specific suppliers, like local brands or designers, but also potential local and international buyers. The organizers want to promote local designers on international markets, through foreign guests from the press, influencers and global buyers, turning “Made in Romania” into an internationally appreciated brand.

“Bucharest Fashion Week is committed to becoming a local and national economic engine, contributing to increasing Romania’s prestige in the global fashion industry. We aim to promote local talents and develop solid institutional collaborations with all major European players in the field, providing a platform both for education and for opening up international career opportunities for Romanian designers. Our goal is to make Bucharest an important hub in European fashion, bringing with it both visibility and investment. We thank Milano Fashion Week and the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana for their support,” said Mario Antico, lawyer, founder of the Italian International School of Bucharest, co-founder of Bucharest Fashion Week.

BFW is structured around four major pillars. The most important is, of course, the presentations of fashion collections, which are the main focus of fashion weeks.

Well-known designers from Romania and Eastern Europe will present their creations in classic or unconventional spaces, with access based on invitation, but the shows will be able to be seen live by all fashion lovers, through projections in the George Enescu square.

The aim of this large-scale event is to transform Romania into a hub for the Eastern European fashion industry, attracting both visibility and investment.

The second objective of the event is education, Bucharest Fashion Week offering students who want to pursue a career in art or fashion design, but also those who already work in these fields, access to Executive Programs courses, organized in Bucharest , but with professors from renowned European universities.

Bucharest Fashion Week aims to bring up, as a topic of interest on the public agenda, sustainability in fashion. The conference on sustainability in fashion organized within the BFW will bring together, for the first time, both designers and representatives of companies from the light industry and textiles area, in an attempt to define the most sustainable future of Romanian fashion.

Representatives of international institutions, influencers, celebrities, renowned industry figures, designers and manufacturers will be present at the event. The conference will be followed by a Gala, where awards will be given to designers and manufacturers who have distinguished themselves by implementing sustainability strategies in their businesses.

Last but not least, this large-scale event, with famous guests from all over the world, aims to promote Bucharest. Apart from designers from Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, Poland, the event will also have a surprise guest, a renowned Italian designer.

After a 25-year career in the field of fashion, as editor-in-chief and publisher of Elle Romania, the time has come to contribute in another way to the promotion of Romanian fashion. We started from the idea that Bucharest and Romania deserve to have a Fashion Week, that is, an event that would put us on the international map of the world and that, on a local level, would play the role of a catalyst that would coagulate all creative forces to develop, truly, the fashion industry in Romania. The partnership with the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (the entity that organizes Milan Fashion Week) is an important moment in the evolution of this ambitious project.” – Roxana VoloČ™eniuc, Editor & Publisher Elle Romania, co-founder of Bucharest Fashion Week

The first edition of Bucharest Fashion Week will take place between October 16-17, 2024, in emblematic locations in the center of the capital.
