SEE THE SHOW
Park Avenue Fashion week is the last stop for Central Florida’s event circuit, providing an unparalleled series of annual fashion events including the renowned runway show in Central Park’s West Meadow. The park is completely transformed with a 20,000 square foot, air-conditioned tent, full runway and lounge area for VIP guests. Modeled after New York Fashion Week’s Bryant Park, PAFW is home to some of Central Florida’s most influential socialites and trendsetters. And this year’s annual show will be an incredible experience you won’t want to miss.

SPONSOR THE SHOW
As Central Florida’s largest media event, Park Avenue Fashion Week draws thousands of impressions and possibilities for brands to be exposed and recognized within the industry.
On this prestigious platform, there are countless opportunities, parties and events leading up to the runway show for companies to elevate their business, connecting with Central Florida’s elite and taking their brands to the next level.
As part of the PAFW tradition, this year’s selected charity partner is the Foundation for Foster Children.
Their mission is to enrich the lives of children placed in foster care due to abuse and neglect by providing opportunities that nurture their ability to succeed both as individuals and contributing members of our community. The Foundation for Foster Children strengthens our community by providing direct support to foster children and foster families in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, where there are approximately 1400 ethnically diverse foster children residing.
Statistics show that participation in programs like these teaches independence, builds self esteem and inspires confidence in the lives of children who too often feel forgotten and unimportant. While these children are considered ‘wards of the state’, funds to support typical childhood experiences, activities and educational enrichment for foster youth are not readily available from government sources.
A portion of your ticket proceeds will automatically be donated to the Foundation for Foster Children. In addition, if you wish to donate directly, please use the link below.
Emerging Designer Show
Emerging Designer Contest
Each year, Park Avenue Fashion Week seeks out designers, design students, and fashion aficionados to apply for the Emerging Designer Contest. This annual competition recognizes up-and-coming talent and challenges designers to a series of tasks in order to determine one winner who will feature their line in the PAFW runway show. The winner will also be given the opportunity to have their collection featured in a Park Avenue boutique for one month, accompanied by a trunk show.
