Knit-Couture Fashion Shows

Free knit-couture fashion shows will be held in the Marketplace on Saturday. The fashion shows feature hand-knit garments in today’s latest fashions that could rival any show during Fashion Week.

All Weekend Long

Diversity and Inclusion Panel
The panelists, some of whom will be members of our Diversity Advisory Council, will be announced at a later date.

Diversity Advisory Council Mission Statement: We are professionals in a creative industry that serves a creative audience. Creativity, at the core of what we do and the audience we service, flourishes best in an environment where diversity of thought and inclusion of all are priorities. For everyone to perform at their best, we need to recognize and address demographic, opportunity, and social issues that can impede the creative process and create an environment where those priorities are apparent. The Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) at Vogue Knitting magazine has as its mission to ensure that all—regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexuality, religion, age, ability, or access needs—feel welcome, supported, and recognized by our publications and at our events. We recognize that this is not a quick fix, but rather a journey to lasting change.
