Refinery29 does it again: this time they’re partnering with MADE Fashion Week to support rising design, fashion and art when the world is looking at the fashion stage in New York.
MADE Fashion Week takes place simultaneously with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, but focuses on bringing innovative fashion and emerging designers to the media spotlight. Philippe von Borries, Co-Founder and CEO of Refinery29 said that the partnership “[celebrates] personal style and [focuses] on the most original fashion.”
MADE Fashion Week’s impressive schedule includes 50 fashion shows and presentations in both New York and Paris, as well as events, concerts, and an interactive component on milkmade.com. Refinery29 will cover the event on site and on the streets for their new, in-house development: R29 Studio, where they will conduct interviews with participating designers, celebrities, models, and makeup artists throughout the week.
The best part? You don’t have to miss a thing. Refinery29 is streaming every MADE Fashion Week runway show on their website.
