Williamsburg Fashion weekend was started by designer Arthur Arbit in 2006. Every season he continues to assemble young and up-and-coming designers with progressive ideas about design and conscientious production practices. WFW shows run the gamut from fashion as conceptual art to ready-to-wear. Individual productions often incorporate live music, theatrical performance and dance as part of the runway experience.
