Fashion Week Brooklyn's 10th year anniversary kicked off it's runway show season last Sunday with a successful event produced in partnership with new presenting sponsor Brooklyn's Kings Plaza Mall Shopping Center. Held in an open area of the mall, the show titled, Retailer's Runway Presentation, featured looks from no less than 14 Kings Plaza retailers. With the runway strategically located at the bottom of one of the mall's staircases, models were challenged to successfully negotiate the stairs before hitting the runway.

Fashion Week Brooklyn's stylists put together a variety of looks culled from a wide array of Kings Plaza retailers from giant national chains like Old Navy and Macy's to smaller boutique shops like Charlotte Russe and Vince Camuto. FWB should be commended for creating a platform for it's stylists to shine. One of my favorite images is the look by New York and Company (image above).

Thursday featured FWB's collection of young designers including many aspiring high school students. Friday and Saturday included couture collections of ready to wear by a wide array of designers including talent from the Middle East, Mexico and India. Click the links below for images of each show.
