COLUMBUS INDEPENDENT DESIGN
FASHION WEEK 2019
MARCH 16 - march 23
It's the end-all, be-all showcase of Columbus' most innovative independent designers. Because this year... it all ends.
Don't miss the final Alternative Fashion Week, as we know it!
Hey, what's happening on Instagram?
Alternative Fashion Mob (or AFM, if you're fond of acronyms) embraces, enjoys, and celebrates our local fashion culture. We believe that fashion is for everyone. It should be accessible to all people, regardless of age, shape, sex or economic status. Our celebration of Columbus fashion invites all members of our community – especially the fashion-forward, creatively focused, and community-minded – to participate and embrace as we showcase, nurture, and enjoy our local design talent.
But who (and what) are we? We are a not-for-profit, who was founded in 2012 for the purpose of supporting our city's independent fashion designers and helping them be successful right here in Columbus. We include fashion designers, industry professionals, and couture enthusiasts who are dedicated to furthering the local fashion industry. You'll see us around Columbus at events, fund raisers, pop-up boutiques, and at the annual mother of all fashion fests, Alternative Fashion Week.
