Fort Worth sees its first fall fashion week thanks to mastermind Philip Maximillian, which runs through Sunday.
Back after a successful debut this spring, Maximilian is back on top. FWFW has a plethora of events showcasing fall trends with more styles, shows and businesses and brands this year. Menswear, athleisure, and more western styles are just a few examples of the newest fashion styles we’ll see.
Maximillian will debut its first spring/summer 2023 fashion collection, aptly named “Debut.” Fort Worth’s unique western culture was the inspiration behind the collection, which required over 40 hours of hand sewing. Spectators can expect fringed and flowing chiffon fabrics featured in the show.
“We illustrated in the spring the entrance saying we’re here and come see what we’re about,” says Maximillian. “Now, it’s bringing everyone together, everyone in the Fort Worth fashion community and creating this great event for the week.”
This year’s event features fashion shows from Studio 74 Vintage, City Boots, LAUDE the Label and more than 30 other local businesses and brands. Returning events from earlier this year include a fashion reception at Neiman Marcus and Camp Bowie’s Fashion Row. FFWW kicks off with City Boot’s “The Big Bend” runway show tonight.
“It is the place that rejuvenates your soul. In designing the Big Bend collection, it was important to me to represent the natural colors and allure of the region,” says City Boots founder Lizzy Bentley. “The stitching pattern ebbs and flows, just like the roads and the Rio Grande River that carve through the landscape. Midnight Navy is the example of the dark night sky I encountered driving along the Presidio Highway, lit only by the stars.
