Founded in 2015 by Zermatt’s Marc Ruh, Zermatt Fashion Week is getting bigger and better every year. The goal of the event is to provide an attractive advertising platform for brands and young designers from all over the world. With a unique backdrop at the foot of the Matterhorn, crowds gather in the village to enjoy culinary highlights, live acts and parties with top DJs, not forgetting the all important fashion shows.

This years event takes place from the 13th to the 16th December. There are two main fashion shows - the Young Designer and the Grand Brand. The Young Designer Fashion Show gives newcomers the opportunity to showcase their collections which tend to move away from the mainstream into trendier, more daring territory. Taking place at 8pm on the 14th December, fashion enthusiasts will get the chance to meet the young designers and enjoy the after party hosted by Vernissage Bar.

The Grand Brand Fashion Show will be held on the Saturday at 6pm. This is where established brands will present their latest collections. Choreographed by Grazia Covre, the show features music and dancing and is a spectacle not to be missed. Tickets for the show will be available from the 1st November.

Aside from the main shows there will be a second hand pop up store where you can pick up a bargain. Zermatt itself is also a great place to shop. From watches and jewellery to the best possible equipment and sports clothing, the resort offers a first-class shopping experience for all.

There is still plenty of accommodation available for these dates. For the best views stay at Chalet Maurice, an exclusive chalet in the Petit Village overlooking the majestic Matterhorn. For pure luxury, the prestigious Chalet Mckinley in the exclusive 7 Heavens development is for you. However if you are looking for something a little lower key but still wish to be at the centre of the action we recommend Duplex Mount Whitney, a family-friendly apartment with a prime location right in the centre of the village.
