About Alaska Fashion Week:
The idea of creating AFW was in the mind of the founders as they would say, "for awhile." In 2012, after a crucial article from the Travel Leisure Magazine, calling Alaska the worst dressed in United States" the group decided to work on AFW to change that statement. Their first year was in 2013 and now AFW is quickly becoming a fashion event to be reckoned with.
