Tired of the luxury-obsessed peacocks and peahens preening all around town during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, just wrapping up tonight?  Craving an unabashedly edgy catwalk not afraid of letting loose with some true renegade spirit?  Look no further…Williamsburg Fashion Weekend is here again, presenting its sixth season of fashion shows featuring designers “not afraid to break the rules and cross boundaries in search of a deeper meaning,” at least when it comes to clothing and accessories.

Arthur Arbit, iconic founder and curator of WFW, will surely once again blow our fashion, performance and music-loving minds, and has assembled twelve designers (including his own line, King Gurvy), who share his passion for an “unwavering, personal, take-no-prisoners aesthetic vision.”  The two-day event will happen this Saturday February 20th and Sunday February 21st, at Glasslands Gallery, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

  1. At least Brooklyn knows they could never sustain a week (or a day) but that does not excuse their vain, sad, little attempt to make their fashion mark. Yeah, yeah, Williamsburg is amazing…if you live there. Say what you want, but Williamsburg is better in theory. But this ongoing desperate attempt to prove that Williamsburg is better than New York City is something that you can talk to my hand about. I surely can appreciate: Williamsburg Hipsters…skinny jeans…quirky accessires…oversized knit hats…dive bars…counter culture (ish). Congratulations. Read more at I Mean What?!? http://bit.ly/98cRo1

  2. @Ryan, thanks for dropping by with some self promotion. Enjoyed your article, you got most of this right, but of course there was just as much schlock and garbage at the NYFW as at this show except there it was just much more tedious,like seeing Dallas housewives preene on and on.
