Milwaukee’s fashion community celebrated the Third Annual Milwaukee Fashion Week this September with a three-day schedule of shows featuring the works of 34 designers. The night’s events were held in the Milwaukee Athletic Club‘s Grand Ballroom, a beautiful setting for the occasion.  This year’s Fashion Week was presented by Wantable, a Milwaukee-based e-commerce personal styling service. You provide your sizes and fashion tastes, and they do the rest! The evening’s occasion also benefited Project: I AM POWER (with Je Zuis Talent), a non-profit organization that works to instill empowerment and confidence in today’s young females.

The fashion designers who presented on Day One of Milwaukee Fashion Week included PNX Designs, Native Nation Designs, Basia Rose Designs, Alpha|LaFemme, ElyseMichele Designs, BAVLANKA, AMU Cherian, Kucci Bu, Silversark and Featured Celebrity Guest Mark Roscoe of Mark Roscoe Couture.

The Milwaukee Fashion Week 2017 Designer of the Year, Madalyn Manzeck of Madalyn Joy Designs also presented on this evening. Learn more about Madalyn and her work here, in our one on one interview with her from this past summer.

We send our congratulations to all of the talented designers, models and those working behind-the-scenes on an amazing night of Milwaukee fashion!
