This week Riga will once again become the most fashionable city in the world as Riga Fashion Week 2012 kicks off. From Tuesday until Saturday a host of designers, models and fashionistas will descend on Riga to take part in a number of fashion events happening all around the city.
If you are in Riga this week, and are wondering how to pass the time on the cold grey snowy days that have hit the city, then pop over to Riga Fashion Week Hall (RFW Hall), more commonly known as Rigas Makslas Telpa (Riga Art Space), where the majority of events will be happening. Designers from Latvia and abroad will be showing off their spring/summer collections for 2013. You can get the full schedule here.
If you’re not into fashion then there are still plenty of other events in Riga this week. Why not visit the opera or a concert, one of Riga’s great museums or even an ice hockey game. Or head out on the town and savour Riga’s nightlife. An Eat Riga Beer and Balsam Tour can give you a good introduction to what’s happening in Riga.
As you may or may not know Riga like many post Soviet countries needs a touch of a colour now and then. By having a fashion week here we brighten up the city a little bit and make the beautiful people feel even more important! E.a.t. Riga will be hosting its own version of Riga Fashion Week – Riga Cushion Week, where we will be enjoying the warmth of our own homes during the autumn!
