Now entering its 12th year, Sacramento Fashion Week aims to amplify the talents of local designers, models and photographers, along with hair and makeup professionals, all while promoting the area’s fashion, beauty and arts industries. This year there are seven official SFW events spread out between Feb. 18–24 at various venues around town. There is everything from a Model Bootcamp (Feb. 18), to a Hair and Makeup Workshop (Feb. 19), to a Fashion on Film event (Feb. 22), to two different Designer Showcases for both Spring/Summer looks (Feb. 23) and Fall/Winter looks (Feb. 24). Some of the events are free to attend, some will require a ticket, so you’ll want to visit or follow them on social channels (@SacFashionWeek) for a full rundown of the week’s schedule and details about which designers and artists will be featured. If you want to immerse yourself in the local fashion and beauty industries, Sacramento Fashion Week is your best shot, so don’t miss out.
