The Future of Fashion is an immersive multi-media runway-style show that started in 2009 as a collaboration between Lexington designer Soreyda Benedit-Begley and photographer Richie Wiremen along with a small handful of models and make-up artists. Designed to draw awareness to Lexington’s multi-tiered fashion scene and to give young designers a “platform for innovation,” the event has been on hiatus since 2013 but returned in 2022 after being delayed by the 2020 pandemic.

Future of Fashion Show by numbers: In 2013, the Future of Fashion show was held at the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts center. 35 designers showcased their collections, 20 vendors set up to sell their products, 16 hair and makeup artists, 75 models, 10 photographers, 6 event hostesses, 2 DJs, 4 visual artists, and over 25 volunteers.
