Brussels Fashion Festival is closely adhering to the Belgian  Government and other relevant authorities’ guidance as we adapt our event and attendee experience to help protect the wellbeing of our community.

We know that COVID-19 is causing unprecedented change and uncertainty, and at Brussels Fashion Festival the wellbeing of our guests, talent and personnel will always be our first priority.

Our COVIDSafe Plan will be in place throughout pre-production and onsite at events. We need the help of everyone that works with us, and attends our events, to ensure the BFF COVIDSafe plans are followed so that our whole community is kept safe.

Detailed information and guidance will be made available as relevant in advance of guests attending the events. As allowances and restrictions are constantly updated, BFF will issue guest information closer to the event dates.

Brussels Fashion Festival engages models over 15 years of age from reputable and accredited agencies. Model bookings for the Festival’s produced runways and events are placed with agencies by the Festival’s appointed runway production agency. Please note, the Festival does not engage unrepresented talent nor does it cast for talent outside of designated casting procedures through agencies.

To express your interest in showcasing your designs as part of an BFF-produced runway, please email Chloe Russo, BFF’s Fashion Programmer, at with your name, brand name and a link to your website.
