Guatemala takes its place in Central America with fashion week￼
The quintessential platform that has promoted the design and fashion industry in the country since 2014 announced its dates, activities and venues for one of the most important fashion events in the region. This event, already anticipated by all fashion lovers, the industry and the general public both nationally, regionally and internationally, will take place in different places in Guatemala from November 8 to 12, 2022.
Guatemala Fashion Week began nine years ago, in 2014, as a fashion event that burst onto the national scene. During its first years, this effort was accompanied by a very important worldwide brand of vehicles. Over time, and due to changes in the market and strategies, it assumed the name and role it played in the field of national fashion from the beginning: Guatemala Fashion Week is the platform that brings together the guild and becomes an integrator, a space that goes beyond the days of the show to be one where the actors meet, get to know each other, support each other, promote each other, seek to grow together as a community and collaborate, in addition to the exposure it allows them to have both nationally and internationally, and to rub shoulders with designers of international stature.
