StyleWeek to Take Hiatus after 2016 SWIM Event

After 12 successful seasons and six years of StyleWeek Northeast, Rosanna Ortiz, Founder & CEO, announced today, the sixth anniversary of the very first StyleWeek show, that the StyleWeek Northeast brand will be taking a hiatus after the conclusion of its signature SWIM event on Sunday, June 12th at the Rooftop at the Providence G.

“StyleWeek Northeast has been a labor of love and my sole focus for the last seven years,” said Ortiz. “As the landscape of my professional life and that of the fashion industry changes, and how StyleWeek likes to stay ahead of the curve, my team and I have decided to pause and evaluate our brand so that we can take the proper steps to ensure continued growth.”

“I have been humbled by the ongoing support of our designers, sponsors, media, the city of Providence and guests over the years. They have each played a role in the mark we have made on the fashion industry – locally, regionally, and nationally – and we are looking forward to the next phase.”

StyleWeek was established in 2009 with the vision of connecting buyers and press with emerging design talent. A fashion week focused on the business of fashion, StyleWeek is a true celebration of style and culture, which includes both formal fashion shows and community-wide events. More than 100 emerging designers have showcased their talents since the event’s inception. For more information, visit
