A crowd of fashion lovers and Make-It Springfield supporters showed up on Saturday, June 24th to view the talents of 12 local, national and international fashion designers. The event, which drew about 150 people to downtown Springfield, was a preview of FAB Fashion Passion Week of New England, an annual event organized by Richie Richardson of Turners Falls, MA and NYC. Make-It’s Executive Director, Roberta Wilmore, has been working with Mr. Richardson to bring segments of his annual event to downtown Springfield, creating a new, dynamic collaboration that brings opportunities to Springfield designers, models and organizers.
Special thank you to Nixon Studio Rental for bringing our talented models to Make-It and for sharing your beautiful photos of the event, models and clothing.
Congratulations to all the designers and organizers! Here are some photos from the preview:
