Styleweek Northeast, formerly known as Styleweek Providence, is underway through Aug. 31, an event now in its fifth year and expanded this year to include the northeast to showcase more designers. The event, supported by the Council of Fashion Design of America, highlights designers that include Rhode Island School of Design grads. The event takes place at the Providence Biltmore in the Alex and Ani Runway Room and L'Apogee on the 17th and 18th floors.


Tickets start at $30, and for $75 on Friday, you can sidle up to fashion industry insiders, at the industry-only Swarovski VIP suite. That ticket includes access to all shows that night.

The Biltmore is offering deals for those attending the show, with superior rooms fetching $89 a night, and junior suites $119. For all information, visit www.styleweeknortheast.com

The event was created to provide emerging designers a platform to showcase their debut collections to the reason, said Rosanna Ortiz Sinel, president and founder of Styleweek, adding that it "evolved from a local to regional event and is one of the few regional fashion expositions supported by the council of Fashion Design in America. Styleweek not only brings together the fashion business and the community but is a true celebration of style and culture."
