BK Central Library’s Plaza To Turn Into Catwalk For Fashion School

BROOKLYN, NY — A popular annual fashion show on its way back to Brooklyn Central Library for the first time since the coronavirus crisis will transform the outdoor plaza into a catwalk this Friday.

The BKLYN Fashion Academy show – held virtually in 2021 – will for the first time showcase collections from the programme’s latest roster of designers, who have spent 12 weeks working with industry experts.

Usually held inside the library, the show will take place this year in the square in front of the steps of the central library. The outdoor version will likely mean that even more Brooklynites will be able to enjoy the designs given that in the past so many people showed up to the fashion academy show that the library had to close its doors when it reached his capacity.

This year’s event will follow the theme “American History En Vogue” and will include a post-parade celebration.

BKLYN Fashion Academy includes partnerships with Project Runway’s Mach School of Design Ben Mach, Made in NY: Fashion, Brooklyn Style Foundation (BK|SF), FABSCRAP, Fashion Week Brooklyn (fw|BK), FABSCRAP, Behind the Rack and Major Face LLC, organizers said.

Here’s what you need to know about the event, plus a preview of the designer’s sketches:

WHAT: Models parade outdoors in Central Library Square, wearing clothes created by designers from the BKLYN Fashion Academy, the only such program in the country.

The theme of this year’s show is American History En Vogue. The fashion show will be followed by a celebration, open to all with the models and designers, and refreshments by the PowerUP of the Brooklyn Public Library! winners, Island Pops and Jess Pudd’in and more.
