Strike a pose — it’s time for fashion week, Columbus.
More specifically, Sun., Oct. 9 is the official start of Columbus Fashion Week 2022 where emerging designers will showcase all of their latest work. There’s a runway to be found almost everyday next week so we’re dressing up the details.
Don’t be fashionably late
The week starts on Sun., Oct. 9 with the High Fashion Tea Runway Show from 1-4 p.m. at The Joseph. Find high fashion designs that combine style + flair, and finish the day with an afternoon tea.
For the final day on Sat., Oct. 15, a two-part event will be held with a Finale Runway Show from 6-8 p.m. at The Lazarus Building followed by an after party. Visit the CFW website for a complete look at the week-long lineup.

Put on your thinking cap
This year’s headline designer is Natalia Fedner, who was born in Ukraine + immigrated to Columbus as a child. She’s since worked for some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, and Janet Jackson — do we need to name more? Because we can.
On Thurs., Oct. 13, Natalia will share her story in a conversation that benefits her home country through the Ukrainian Cultural Association of Central Ohio. Entry fees, which are $25, will be donated to the non-profit.
