Baku Fashion Week is a synthesis and fusion of oriental flavor with the world's major fashion weeks in Paris, Milan, New York and London, which gave a huge impetus to the development of the Azerbaijani fashion industry.
The event is mainly aimed to reveal and promote the national designers, search for new fresh bright names in the fashion world as well as to stimulate local industry.
Baku Fashion Week is held in the capital twice a year in spring/summer and fall/winter.
The first Baku Fashion Week was held in Azerbaijan in November 2014. The founder of the event was Hafiz Aghayev, who presented Azerbaijan at the "Mister World" contest in 2010.
