Austin Fashion Week WINNERS

Congrats, Launch 787 on a successful Austin Fashion Week! I'm already looking forward to next year's... I just hope it can be in a month OTHER than July. The Beautiful People of Austin look so much more beautiful when they're not melting from outside temperatures of 104º. Jake Holt's photos from the red carpet are online here.

The complete list of Austin Fashion Week winners is posted on their official site, but here I've posted links to the winner's websites and linked where the hairstylists work, just in case you want to shop online or book appointments with Golden Boot winners.
