Men’s Fashion Week Virginia Back For Season 3: Norfolk, VA

     NORFOLK, VA- Men’s Fashion Week Virginia returns again for its third season Monday, April 8th through Sunday, April 14, 2019. Just as it did last year, center city Norfolk will serve as the style hub of Hampton Roads area. This year’s runway events will create great style throughout various venues of Norfolk.

        MFWVA, the brainchild of Ron Cooke and Mario Daughtry started with the vision of creating a platform for established and emerging designers of men’s apparel from all over to showcase their talent in Norfolk. The goal for Men’s Fashion Week Virginia is to continue to showcase the best men’s fashion in mid-Atlantic region.

          The presentations provide themed events where regional designers, artisans, retail brands and retailers can network and present their collections to the mid-Atlantic’s style buyers, social media, press, bloggers, and menswear enthusiasts. The artistically inspired men’s style presentations will showcase local, up-and-coming menswear designers and models as well as provide an atmosphere for networking with industry professionals both regional and national.

          Last year’s MFWV events surprised and entertained patrons by bringing artistic New York style red carpet presentations and featured chef receptions in unique Norfolk venues. This 2019 season opens with a social media and press reception and culminates with the The Flavor Of Comedy.

           Designers scheduled to appear are of designer Kenny “KAS” Flannigan, Malcolm Staples, and Team L.A.M.B. The fashion shows will again be produced and directed by Ron Cooke.  Tickets to all events may be purchased on line at www.mensfashionweekvirginia.com.
