This Is Midwest Fashion Week in Indianapolis!

Models, pattern-makers, makeup artists, project engineers, photographers, and even chemists gather in the Circle City this week to celebrate fashion, the Hoosier way. The event, called Midwest Fashion Week, was inaugurated in 2006. It gives proof to the rumor that the Heartland not only has heart, it has creativity too, and lots of it. Indianapolis is the perfect choice for the staging of Midwest Fashion Week, and the bustling Indianapolis downtown sector is the perfect locale for fashion. (What better way to answer the age-old question, “Is there really a nap in Naptown?”)

Indy residents, especially Indianapolis artists and those who make up the active Indianapolis arts community, will join with other arty fans of fashion from various points in Indiana and beyond to participate in and enjoy Midwest Fashion Week in Indianapolis through Saturday, October 17. See the schedule below for a brief outline of this unique Indianapolis event.
