This week is Austin Fashion Week (EDITED)
Every year I find myself contemplating attending New York Fashion Week, not because I want to go to oh-so-serious fashion shows, but because I'd love to meet other bloggers and the people behind the brands that I work with. New York Fashion Week isn't really my scene, though, so I'm trying my best to convince the rest of the country to come out to Austin to see what we have to offer.
The really great thing about Austin Fashion Week is that there are 70 events, most of which are free and all of which are unpretentious. Here are some of my picks for this weeks' fashion week festivities:
Monday, August 22 (today): Blo | 1611 W 5th Street Suite #145 78703
Time: 6- 9 pm
Tuesday, August 23
Venue: Driskill Hotel | 604 Brazos 78703
Time: 1-2 pm
Cost: FREE but must register [here]
Doo-Wop Fashion Bash
Dust off your dancing shoes, twirl that skirt and spin those 45's at a fifties-inspired jukebox party hosted by Tess Dress & Touch of Sass. Enter under the balloon arch and pose for a photo in our fresh-from-the-drive-in hot rod. Snack on burgers and fries from Terra Burger, sneak a slice of Americana from Tootie Pies and wash it all down with a signature cocktail cool enough for all you Cats and Daddy-O's. If that's still not enough to razz your berries, step into the photo booth or choose your favorite tune from our jukebox. And be sure to be on time, as the the first 100 guests will get swag bags stuffed with goodies from over 15 local hotspots.
Venue: Touch of Sass | 500 North Lamar
