This spring the upcoming season’s fashion trends will be presented by such renown Latvian designers and brands as Natālija Jansone, «Anna Led», «Amoralle», «Narciss», «Katya Katya Shehurina», «Nolo», «Mareunrol’s», «Alexandra Westfal», «IN by Inga Nipane», «One Wolf»«QooQoo».

This season’s debut will be the emerging Riga–based fashion brand «Tanti» whose aim, as told by its founders, is to create sustainable fashion that lasts for more than one season.

For the first time clothing for kids will be also demonstrated during Riga Fashion Week. Among the participants will be the kids wear brand «Paade Mode», which values natural materials and ethical approach, the luxurious fashion brand «Lazy Francis» and «Aristocrat Kids», known by its marvellous handmade dresses for girls up to twelve.

In addition to local designers Riga Fashion Week will feature foreign guests as well — Ukrainian brand «Ludmila Kislenko», Lilija Larionova from Lithuania and «Pohjanheimo» from Estonia.

Riga Fashion Week will include not only fashion shows, but also various presentations and informal events, for example, a special gathering for fashion buyers.
