Riga This Week - FREE RIGA CITY GUIDE made by locals since 1992


The Baltic Fashion Federation has announced that the 29th RIGA FASHION WEEK this autumn will take place in Riga from 23-27 October. At the upcoming RIGA FASHION WEEK, the best Latvian and foreign designers will showcase their spring-summer 2019 pret-a-porter collections. In addition, this season, RIGA FASHION WEEK program will be enriched with several events within the framework of the international project “United Fashion”.

The advertising campaign image of the forthcoming RIGA FASHION WEEK session was created with an input of Liene Grinberga, the founder of the brand PUBLIC MAKE IMAGE, with the garments and accessories from her own new collection. The popular model from Rezekne – Sintija Selicka is the face of this seasons’ RFW advertising campaign, whose modelling career has begun relatively recently, but with tremendous success. This image was created by a team of professionals: a photographer – Miks Uzans, a stylist – Elga Homitska, hair arrangement by – Svetlana Dubatova, make-up by – Lara Pudovska.

“I'm glad to have a great team of professionals working on the brand development and visual identity of PUBLIC MAKE IMAGE. This photo of the RFW ad campaign shows the mood of our new collection – “Street Motion”. In 2019, the spring-summer trends will feature an interplay between grandee style, sport and graphics, various slogans and ascetic direction in the deconstructed classics. Consequently, our image is shaped by the influence of the 90’s youth, while looking through the modern prism. The main source of inspiration for this collection is recent events in sports both in Latvia and worldwide, thus we created a collection that is a modern combination of sports style and design trends of the 90’s,” says Liene Grinberga.

RIGA FASHION WEEK has become one of the most creative and innovative fashion and cultural events in the Baltics by creating a celebratory feeling throughout the city for a whole week, twice a year. Each session RIGA FASHION WEEK brings together different professionals of the creative industry and their collaboration results in a wide and always unique fashion week program. The 29th RIGA FASHION WEEK will be special due to the fact that, in addition to the traditional program, events of the international project “United Fashion” will also take place, in which the Baltic Fashion Federation is the official representative in Latvia and the Baltics. Within the framework of this project, events like the European fashion designer's showroom, various educational seminars and workshops for brand development will take place, as well as other events to celebrate fashion and culture.

RIGA FASHION WEEK dedicated to the spring-summer 2019 season will take place on 23-27 October, 2018. The “United Fashion” project is supported by the EU funding program “Creative Europe”, co-financed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia.
