The city's Midwestern location plays to its advantage, according to Watkins.
"We don't have to keep up with the fast-pace trends from overseas," she explained. "We get creative. (Our wardrobe) is pulled from different backgrounds and cultures."
There are several events taking place this week for 'Fashion Week MKE Initiative' including a Fashion Forum and a Wearable Art Gallery night.
"We'll be able to support the movement of boutiques, independent designers, and shopping," Watkins said. "Fashion is an emergence. It's been going on for many years in Milwaukee."
