Each night was unique, we saw on the runway balloon dresses, avant-garde artistic looks, youthful Japanese street wear, sensual lingerie and swimwear, slow-fashion European outerwear to sparking South Asian bridal wear.

For 32 seasons, VFW has presented up-and-coming fashion designers from around the world, ranging from rookie talent to establish brands looking to establish a foothold in North America.
