Participate in WCFW: Designers + Retail Community
Western Canada Fashion Week (WCFW) provides a showcase for local, Canadian and international designers. Our local talent is given the opportunity to work in a progressive environment, allowing them to grow and develop in the fashion community. WCFW continues to evolve each season along with our designers. Since the fall of 2004, we have fostered a design community that engages local and Canadian media, buyers and the general public. We also continually receive international attention from designers, media, buyers and the fashion industry.
Up-and-coming designers can present their fashion on the runway at our bi-annual shows. WCFW collaborates with other agencies, businesses and schools to provide designers with opportunities to advance their design careers. The Western Canada Fashion Week Incubator Program was launched to help Western Canada’s fashion entrepreneurs gain exposure at the national and international level.
We work year round to promote our designers, who have participated in numerous events, including:
- Edmonton International Fringe Festival
- Fashion on Fire
- Lois Hole Hospital for Women
- Kingsway Mall “Let Your Light Shine” Campaign
- The Works Art & Design Festival
- TransCanada Runway (Montreal)
- NYC Fashion Week

Unique to WCFW, the Retail Showcase was developed to support shopping districts and local businesses. Our goals are to provide our Fashion Week reach and create new marketing opportunities for you to promote your business to the WCFW audience by the way of media and a New York-style runway show. Retailers who work closely with us on their presentation can maximize the success of their showcase, and we look forward to collaborating with you to create a powerful event. Each retailer can show two or more outfits. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
