Syracuse Fashion Week is a semi-annual celebration of style and fashion in Syracuse & Central New York. Our philosophy is ALWAYS INCLUSIVE, NEVER EXCLUSIVE. These five days will bring together designers, boutiques, stylists, artists, musicians, bars, restaurants, and other businesses that have a vested interest in the quality of life of Upstate New York.
While we celebrate clothing as one of the essentials to a happy human existence, another vitally important essential is food. Hunger and food insecurity is, unfortunately, an ever-growing concern in many areas of the country, including ours. For this reason, we are partnering with The Food Bank of Central New York to raise awareness and funds for this social issue.
Syracuse Fashion Week is an extension of the wildly popular Syracuse Style Fashion Event. Begun in 2009, Syracuse Style, the fall runway show under the tent in Armory Square, has brought thousands of fashion lovers to Downtown Syracuse.
