London, New York, Paris, Milan. No need to name any more cities here – you know we’re talking fashion. Although Buenos Aires might not be the most obvious design capital in the world, it racks up loads of points for originality and style, and Palermo is the BA fashion Mecca for boutiques, market stalls, second-hand stores and street vendors flogging their creative wares.
So it is of little surprise that Buenos Aires also holds its own catwalk extravaganza, fondly known as BAF Week, whose Autumn/Winter 2012 (Otoño/Invierno) edition starts on 28 February. Although it takes place at Palermo’s La Rural, better known for its annual agricultural show featuring prize-winning cows, BAF Week brings together a catwalk, four days of shows, and Argentina’s finest clothing designers under one roof.
