One of the main tasks of the project is to show the fashion potential of Belarus at the international level as well as to attract attention of foreign colleagues and consumers. The project is going to be an important and interesting event in the world fashion industry and take a stable place in the international schedules of fashion weeks.
At the local level BFW puts the aim of both informing the residents of Belarus about the home fashion, its designers and opportunities, and creating favourable conditions for showing the potential of Belorussian designers.
