High Energy Fashion Show Joins Monday’s Popular Wine & Cheese Reception, Extended Show Hours

LAS VEGAS (April 25, 2018) – Apparel retailers will have the opportunity to preview the latest designs, in action, during the new August 2018 Womenswear In Nevada (WWIN) Fashion Show & Wine and Cheese Reception on Monday, August 13 at 6:30 pm. As part of the show’s popular opening day extended shopping hours feature, the event joins other new initiatives, new exhibitors and additional show highlights in store for the August 13-16 edition at the Rio Hotel & Casino.

“We’re excited to launch our new fashion show as a direct response to buyer and exhibitor requests for more ways to preview new designs,” says Desiree Hanson, Vice President of Fashion, Clarion UX.  “The high energy format will give attendees a first-hand look at brand new introductions -- off the hanger and in motion -- while adding another level of excitement and energy to the show floor.” 

Kicking off the opening day’s extended shopping hours and wine and cheese reception, the red-carpet fashion show format will feature beautiful models wearing a number of selected looks from some of WWIN’s hottest lines, new exhibitors and up-and-coming fashion leaders.
