Don your gilt-tooled masks. Fluff your cravats and smooth your satin gowns. Paint over your beauty marks with black hearts and dainty spades. It’s too early to put away your Mardi Gras finery just yet; The weekend has come for Williamsburg Fashion Weekend,in all the glory of its twelfth season.
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.
It’s unanimous. Williamsburg Fashion Weekend’s eleventh season for spring 2013 was the most provocative yet, so rather than describe the daring cut of the cloth or analyze the extreme performances, we’ve thrown up some of our favorite photos and videos to let you see for yourself.
Daffy’s may be going out of business, and September’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week may be coming to a close, but Williamsburg Fashion Weekend is going strong, so put your best party dress and face paint on and prepare yourself for back to back evenings of extreme fashion and performance. Now in its eleventh season, the bi-annual event, founded in 2006 by the enterprising designer/artist/personality Arthur Arbit, will be showcasing 15 independent designers during its two-night stint at Windmill Studios in Williamsburg on September 14th and 15th.
This is our first video post from Williamsburg Fashion Weekend and I don’t even feel like opining about it, Zebra Baby, it was perfect. In case you moved to New York from somewhere else meeting one of these girls should be your only goal, retaining their attention with your asinine dilemmas is not likely but, who knows, maybe something else will, just be interesting so they can write a lyric or a few off of you.
We have a lot of fun things to do this weekend, you and I and everyone we know. A short run down then:
- The stylish Williamsburg Fashion Weekend
- The debauched Rinsed with The Young Friends
- The punk joy Appa Day n Chiz Night

“I’m trying to decide if I should be analytical about this or just experience it with my senses?” asked David. We were standing amid many half-naked bodies going through a fitting. You could see many eyes running around the room in circles like Apolo Ohno, Olympic worthy.
