Hartford, Connecticut – Hartford Fashion Week announces the departure of Executive Director Katrina Orsini, who will be temporarily stepping down from her role while pursuing a Master’s Degree at Parsons School of Design, effective September 2018.

In her absence, Hartford Fashion Week will continue to be run by a Board of Directors led by Richard Hollant and Zoë Chatfield (both of Co:Lab) with the support of Brennden Colbert (The Colbert Foundation), Cynthia Bulaong (Artists in Real Time), Jeff Devereux (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner), Jessie-Mar Ewart (The Chat It Up Show), and Matt Seremet (ArtSho.ws).

Orsini founded Hartford Fashion Week in October 2014 and has played a critical role in unifying and supporting the fashion and textile community in the Greater Hartford Area. Her leadership has been instrumental in producing and organizing Hartford’s leading fashion platform.

Hartford Fashion Week occupies a unique position within Hartford’s fashion and textile arts. The platform presents, supports, and encourages contemporary designers of all genres as well as elevates the conversation around contemporary design in the community via entertaining and educational events.
