Fashion Brands

Three contrasting, yet important styles of fashion will be the nexus of Indie Fashion Week DC. Each style will debut a series of brands in a unique but exemplary presentation.


STREET WEAR BRANDS

STREET WEAR is a distinctive style of street fashion. While under an ongoing state of evolution of style and creative direction (as with many street trends), one constant of street wear has been the types of clothing produced. It’s commonly centering on casual, comfortable pieces such as: jeans, sweats, t-shirts, baseball caps, and sneakers.

READY-TO-WEAR

READY-TO-WEAR is the term for factory-made clothing. Ready-To-Wear is sold in finished condition and is available in standardized sizes. It differs from made to measure or bespoke clothing, which is tailored to a particular person’s frame.

HAUTE COUTURE

HAUTE COUTURE is high-end fashion that is constructed by hand from start to finish. It is made from high quality, expensive, often unusual fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finished by the most experienced and capable sewers. Haute Couture is often using time-consuming because of the hand-executed techniques required by these types of designs.
