BAFWEEK (abbreviation for Buenos Aires Fashion Week, also stylized as BAFWeek) is a biannual clothing trade show held mainly in La Rural fairgrounds, Buenos Aires. Argentina's most important fashion event,[4][5] BAFWEEK showcases both leading brands and emerging designers.[6][7] In addition, the Semillero UBA BAFWEEK (English: Seedbed UBA BAFWEEK) competition is held, where fashion design students from the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) are chosen by a panel of experts to present their collections at the event with financial support from Paseo Alcorta.[8][9][10]
