Road Trip Austin Fashion Week

Giambattista Valli Austin Fashion Week

Austin Fashion Week was started in 2009 as the brainchild of local event producer Matt Swinney and Launch787. Seeking to establish Austin as a credible capital for fashion industry talent, Swinney created an event that started as primarily a local retailer showcase.

In July 2009, a series of over 80 events featuring local designers was held, dubbed the first Austin Fashion Week. The week was capped off by a stunning first annual Austin Fashion Awards, giving out Golden Boot hardware to deserving men and women in the local industry. Highlights included a Corey Lynn Calter pop up shop, a full collection from Project Runway alum Kayne, and mini-collections from graduating University of Texas designers. This year’s event is bigger than ever. There are 2 days of shows and a huge after party planned  for tomorrow.. I would advise everyone to take a road trip and enjoy this great event.
