Led by Directors Fish Fiorucci, 22, and Victor Hugo Jaramillo, 20, BFW is an official event of the Rio Grande Valley, and supported by Brownsville City Commissioner Nurith Galonsky. BFW will air their five runway presentations on BTV local Brownsville network, Spectrum Cable Channel 1300, Digital TV Channel 12—without a cable box. Along with the runway shows will be five different workshops throughout the week presented by the local fashion community members. These community members have volunteered to give back to the arts community by sharing their fashion insight at a reasonable donation. We know you’re eager to see the emerging talent this city offers, so we’ve gathered the dates, times, and event details below.
