NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — New York Fashion Week has made it’s way to Hampton Roads. However, you won’t be seeing beautiful women rip the runway. This week is all about the men.
The third season of Virginia Men’s Fashion Week kicked off on Monday, showcasing work from designers in New York, D.C. and right here in Hampton Roads.
This 2019 season opened with a social media and press reception and closed with an all-male comedy show.
Co-Creators Ron Cooke and Mario Daughtry say it’s catered to men of all ages and backgrounds. “It’s needed, because our young men need to know what to wear and how to wear it. Not just jeans and T-shirts, but also suits, tuxedos.”
