Riga Fashion Week — Slow fashion meets the Baltics
by Kristin Walzel
New York, London, Milan, Paris, and Copenhagen are widely considered the key international Fashion Week venues. At the same time, new locations around the world are starting to catch the eye. Take the Latvian capital of Riga, for example: To coincide with first the Spring/Summer season and then again with Fall / Winter, it hosts four days crammed with events, highlight displays, and fashion shows by both local and international brands alike. The actual venues include the Hanzas Perons Culture Center, the Zunda Towers, and select designer boutiques all over town.
