Men’s Fashion Week Virginia Back In Style

Runway: Norfolk, VA

     NORFOLK, VA- Men’s Fashion Week Virginia returns again for its second season Tuesday, April 10 through Sunday, April 15, 2018. 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 a “stylish mosaic” throughout various eclectic 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 the US. to showcase their talent in Norfolk. The goal for Men’s Fashion Week Virginia is to continue to showcase the best men’s style (i.e. fashion) in mid-Atlantic region.

          The presentations provide themed events where regional designers, artisans, retail brands, haberdasheries and retailers can network and present their collections to the mid-Atlantic’s style aficionados, buyers, social media, regional 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 MFWVA events surprised and entertained patrons by bringing artistic New York style red carpet presentations and featured chef receptions in unique Norfolk venues. This 2018 season opens with a social media and press reception and culminates with the Matro for Men collection Launch Brunch.

         Designers scheduled to appear are of designer Roxanne Smith for ALFA Clothiers, Mario Daughtry for RECKLESS and Giscombe, a young talent from Virginia Beach who is drawing interest. The installations and fashion shows will again be produced and directed by Ron Cooke.  Tickets to all events may be purchased on line at For more information or discount tickets for 10 or more contact Mario Daughtry at For press credentials and photo passes contact Glen Mason at
