Austin Fashion Week is Back!
AUSTIN--On Saturday evening, a rather large, well-dressed crowd gathered at Austin advertising firm GSD&M Idea City to kick off the city's second annual fashion week. Show goers were treated to delicious cocktails and choice snacks while braving the intense 104 degree heat. Various donations provided by local businesses, artists and sponsors furnished a silent auction benefiting the charities Austin Involved and Dress For Success. But it wasn't until sundown that things really got moving. The show opened with a performance by '80s darling Tiffany, followed by a short runway presentation featuring classic, free flowing silhouettes from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent and beautiful patterned pieces from Robert Stock for Robert Graham. The night ended with a mash up catwalk showcasing the collaborative efforts of 25 teams, each consisting of a local apparel designer, a jewelry designer, a makeup artist, a hair stylist, a photographer, and a model.
