Many cities across the world hold Fashion Weeks, where designers showcase their latest collections. Last year, the state of Maryland announced that Baltimore Fashion Week (BFW) must be moved from downtown to the War Memorial building, due to city budget cuts. Sharon Nixon, founder of BFW was not pleased with this decision and chose to hold the event at the Sheraton Baltimore North in Towson, a nearby city.

In order to support the arts through fashion, Towson Town Center will be the title sponsor of the event.

"I was absolutely ecstatic to have an opportunity to produce a fashion event for the mall and also to have them as a sponsor for Baltimore Fashion Week. It is not easy producing an event of this magnitude with no financial backing," said Nixon.

Towson Town Center will not only be the main sponsor of BFW, but it will also coordinate an event called The Center of Fashion, which will preview fall and winter 2010-2011 collections for Banana Republic, Ed Hardy, GAP, Levi's and VANS. Makeup will be provided by Sephora.

Those who are interested in launching a career in fashion may want to enroll in art school design program. Students can gain valuable skills such as sewing, sketching and product merchandising.
