Celebrate in style. That’s what the organizers have set as the motto for Costa Rica Fashion Week , which takes place for the tenth time this year. Juan Jose Jimenez, director of the activity, said that from 9th to 12th August, the Old Customs House will become the center of fashion, where work will be exhibited and there will also be lectures and workshops.
For this edition, national designers will be the “highlight” of the activity. That’s why attendees will enjoy more than 20 runway shows throughout the four days, and allows people to visit some of the booths of national brands.
According to Jimenez, in recent years have witnessed a transformation at the national level, so it has been given a greater role to local design creativity, rather than the textile industry.
“The design evolved and a local example is the wide range of products. The crisis forced the industry to be more creative, “he said. You can check out the website by clicking Costa Rica Fashion Week.
