Austin Fashion Week is coming up, Ladies! You might not be able to make it to every single one of the breathtaking events during this week long celebration of style, but you wouldn't miss the crowning event for the world! Grab your most glamorous gown, because today's Plum Deal gets you your ticket to the massive culminating event of the week, the Austin Fashion Awards on Saturday, August 27, 2011 from 7-10pm at ACL LIVE.
Infusing incredible fashion into the evening, runway shows will feature collections from formidable Austin talents: Gail Chovan the Parisian-inspired designer and owner of iconic South Congress boutique, Blackmail; Linda Asaf, known for her namesake label of contemporary dresses and breathtaking gowns; and Michelle Weisman, formerly the assistant designer for Mint by Jodi Arnold and head designer for Shoshanna, currently the designer behind 81 poppies, her modern, feminine line, which launched in Austin last spring. It'll be a night to remember!
Austin Fashion Week is a series of events hosted primarily at participating retail and salon locations dotted throughout the city. Curated fashion designers from the state of Texas will set up showcases within each participating retail and salon location. These designers will work through a process to determine the best and brightest the state has to offer. The vetting committee looks for established designers, up and comers, and those just launching their first lines. They are interested in clothing, accessories, jewelry, even home accessories and furniture. In 2010, approximately 125 events occurred during Austin Fashion Week inside the participating retail and salon locations.
