Fashion Week Wraps Up

Events — By Elizabeth Gleeson on February 27, 2011 at 11:03 pm

BA’s biannual fashion event, BAFWeek, took place this past week as pretty young things stomped down runways in La Rural in the fall/winter collections by some of Argentina’s top designers. High-end labels like Pablo Ramirez, Cora Groppo, Trosman, and Tramando swept thru the Palermo convention center alongside ready-to-wear brands like Cook, Rapsodia, and Puma, while design students from the University of Buenos Aires showcased their duds in the student show and the showrooms exhibited a hand-picked selection of clothes, accessories, and shoes by more local designers. BA’s next big fashion bonanza will take place in September, when many of the same labels and designers will show off their spring/summer lines. Keep posted on dates and featured designers here in the meantime.
