Austin Fashion Week • JULY 13-19, 2009


Although the Austin Fashion Week website claims that this event is for the fashion forward elite I have a feeling Austin is ready to embrace this event and let it take over the streets!

Fashion photographers, designers, hair stylists, make – up artists and models will showcase their talents at local boutiques and salons bringing the best of the best for one week only!

Scheduling for the event is happening as we speak – no word yet on the official list, but it seems to be coming together and available to the public very soon.  Placements for each participant have been confirming all week.


On July 16th  6 -8 p   Gallery D will host designer Ross Bennett’s women’s organic collection of wears to the beat of DJ Daniel Allen (BACKSEAT BINGO and newer collaborative DNA).  Hair and make-up has not been confirmed yet, but I will update as soon as I hear something.

July 18th  9p  I.D. Magazine and Devuska Clothing kick off their two night soiree.   The Table Manners Crew , who include the ever handsome, NERDY HARRY, DJ CROWN, DJ DIGG, DJ KID SLYCE, and DJ TATS will be playing from 3-9 p.

“Find your inner pin-up girl” while dining on Sushi at Silhouette on Thursday the 16th at 9 p.m. for some sweet preview action of their pieces.
