The Organizing Committee BFW supports young designers and promotes them on the professional level.
Many international journalists prepared the materials about Belarus Fashion Week after attending it – this season the Organizing Committee BFW cooperated with Italian, British, Russian and Ukrainian media. The interest of the international audience is growing each season, which certainly highlights the quality of the event holding and the improving design of clothing in the whole country. The audience of the fashion shows varies from season to season, moving in the direction of the professional one - direct consumers of fashion in all its forms.
"Belarus has an developing fashion market that has gained much acclaim world-wide in a short amount of time and it is a great opportunity for the Belarusian talents to show to the world the beauty of their culture and their works through the Fashion One network. Belarus Fashion Week is one of the most professional fashion week organizations we have worked with, and Fashion One looks forward to continuing the partnership." said Ashley Jordan, CEO of Fashion One.
"Belarus Fashion Week is quite young (Spring/Summer 2013 will be its 5th season) but we have already earned popularity and respect from the professional fashion weeks in Europe. For now our main aim is to ourselves internationally in the best possible way, and our partnership with Fashion One, being the most competent fashion and entertainment TV channel, makes a valuable contribution to this process. We highly appreciate the support rendered by Fashion One in the previous season Fall-Winter 2012-2013, and we hope for mutually successful cooperation in the upcoming one." states Yanina Hancharova, CEO of Belarus Fashion Week.
