Milwaukee Fashion Week Canceled

Lawrence Zarian

Milwaukee's Fashion Week which was planned to take place this week has been canceled. The event was to bring in celebrity fashion stylist Lawrence Zarian and master hair stylist Syd Curry, among other notables and was sponsored by, Ford Models, Kinko's, and Brew City.

The following statement was just released:

"The organizers of Milwaukee Fashion Week are saddened to report that the event, which was scheduled for October 3 through 6, has been canceled in full. This decision is due to unfulfilled financial commitments. Without these necessary funds, we will be unable to cover the high cost of bringing an event of this magnitude to Milwaukee. We were encouraged by the strong enthusiasm the community showed for Milwaukee Fashion Week and are therefore disappointed the event will not move forward as planned. A decision has not yet been reached regarding rescheduling the event for a future date. Those who purchased tickets online for Milwaukee Fashion Week will receive a full refund."
