Fashionistas enjoy shows and parties at the latest Riga Fashion Week

The 20th edition of Riga Fashion Week is now taking place in the Latvian capital, continuing until April 5. Gathering together designers, models, specialists, journalists, bloggers, celebrities and fashionistas, the event has been presenting the best in Latvian fashion over the past 10 years.

The opening kicked off at the Spikeru Concert Hall on April 1, entertained by jazz band Backstage and DJ Ksenia Kamikaza.

But the day-to-day events are being held in a larger and more luxurious setting, on the fifth floor of the upmarket fashion center Podium, at Brivibas Street 201.

This season locally well-known Latvian designers and brands are presenting their Fall/Winter 2014/15 collections: Katya Katya Shehurina, Anna LED, Natalija Jansone, One Wolf, Red Salt, Alexander Pavlov, Narciss, Nóló, BeCarousell, Paviljons and QooQoo, M-Couture and Alexandra Westfal. Debuts include Baiba Ladiga and IN by Inga Nipane.

One of the most intriguing guests at Riga Fashion Week is Paola Balzano from Italy, while two other guests – D.EFECT (Lithuania) and Pohjanheimo (Estonia) are already known to the Latvian public due to previous performances and who have already gained followers in Latvia.

The 20th RFW also brings the first Latvian online showroom – a virtual project at the internet store, which opened on April 2. There you can book clothes from the collections of the last RFW participants, as an exclusive opportunity to buy clothing before it becomes available in the stores.

Fashion parties are expected across the city. On April 3, a party with DJ Markus Riva will take place in the restaurant Darzs where Tundra HATA – a Latvian experimental creative hat workshop – will present their freaky headdress collection.

Then there’s a Cosmopolitan Night Out Party with DJ Tom Grevins, at the club Coyote Fly, Terbatas Street 2, on April 4. The 20th Riga Fashion Week will close on April 5 at the RFW Models and Fans Party, also at Coyote Fly, where the most popular models will be announced and the party will go on until dawn.

The organizer of Riga Fashion Week, the Baltic Fashion Federation, has signed a cooperation agreement with the news channel Euronews, which according to the federation is allowing the event to be “the first project in Latvian history to be supported by an international media outlet at such a high level”.
