Cincinnati Fashion Week 2011
New Look, New Programs, and More

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CINCINNATI – January 31, 2010 – CINCINNATI FASHION WEEK 2011 announces the second annual celebration of art, fashion and design to be held in the city of Cincinnati. Scheduled dates are Monday May 9 – Sunday May 15, 2011. Founded in 2009, the industry driven platform offers a unique opportunity to nurture the next wave of major design talent by establishing an on-going presence of global fashion in communities across the Midwest.

Now in its second year, the movement holds true to its promise to bring fashion, retail, and philanthropy to the Midwestern forefront of style. To build upon its early success, Cincinnati Fashion Week has fine-tuned the official event programming to include an even higher level of national and international talent, higher learning opportunities, and deeper connections with Midwest retailers.

In addition to the new programming, a new logo and branding has been created on behalf of Landor Associates Cincinnati, a leading strategic branding consulting and design firm. “The support of the inspirational team at Landor amongst a young fashion movement, has demonstrated a common wealth in the artistic community that reaches beyond success, beyond politics, talent, and beyond mediums; in fact, it catches creativity right at the spark of inspiration, when the best use of our talents is to share them and inspire others to do the same,” commented Cincinnati Fashion Week founder Nathan Hurst.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
“Fashion is a lifestyle which adapts on a personal level, and reflecting this message for 2011 was most significant. To truly bring fashion to the Midwest, we must continue to have a dialogue about how we view fashion in our lives,” commented Nathan Hurst, Founder & CEO of Cincinnati Fashion Week.

In 2011, Cincinnati Fashion Week will evolve with the community it helped to establish by delivering what may be the largest fashion industry driven production seen within the Central Midwest.

Guests of official events at Cincinnati Fashion Week will be guided through a week of fashion inspired events led by national & international figures in the fashion community, including couture collectors, media personnel, fashion designers, retail historians, and much more.
Complete itinerary to be released within the coming weeks.
