Williamsburg Fashion Weekend is being very celebratory about the holidays this year. Last Saturday marked the release of their 2nd magazine issue. The issue, which was holiday themed, was given out at their Winter Bawl, held at creator of WFW Arthur Arbit’s painting-filled loft. Photos from the event appear around this post for your voyeuristic enjoyment (or tag yourself proud if you’re in them).
The magazine was available in print at the event. It’s now available to read up on the web. This issue focuses on, in addition to showcasing local talent, the need to restructure the fashion industry, and does so by featuring stories on a local factory and manufacturing. The magazine also offers a detailed shopping guide and map of where to shop locally for the holidays. It will also be available in print form at the Williamsburg Fashion Weekend Holiday Market this upcoming weekend, December 15th and 16th.
