Ken Biehler - Motivation For Hamilton Fashion Week

I'm proud to be the chairperson of Hamilton Fashion Week but what is my motivation?! My primary job is that I work in real estate marketing. I moved my office to the James Street North area of Hamilton roughly 13 years ago. Since that time I have seen the arts community transform the local community into a thriving neighbourhood. The turnaround has been so dramatic that it is actually the largest stimulus in the entire city of Hamilton's rebuild. Downtown Hamilton has become a place where people actually want to go and this is because of the arts!

The fashion world locally has a lot of potential. With Hamilton's proximatity to Toronto it allows for fashion professionals to be able to have their base in Hamilton and still visit to Toronto whenever needed but by actually paying affordable fees for studio space.

There are many people involved / affected by the growing fashion industry. As Hamilton becomes more and more of a fashion hub designers, models, photographers, makeup artists, media all will experience a boom. Our neighbours will be directly impacted! Instead of money travelling to fund Chinese child labour factories the money will stay local in our communities.

Hamilton Fashion Week is hosting 4 fashion shows with 16 designers on October 15 and 16 at Digital Canaries Studios (520 Burlington Street East, Hamilton). Tickets are $20 per show and $50 for all shows. This is an opportunity to actually be introduced to the people who have dedicated their lives to fashion and struggling to actually create an industry.

Please be a part of it!
