Fashion X Austin,s Austin Fashion Week Week, now in its 9th year, is a fun week where the City of Austin becomes a mecca for fashion get together’s and runway shows held at the posh JW Marriott in downtown Austin. I was lucky to receive some exclusive tickets to a few new events, one being a runway show that took place at the Driskoll Hotel. It featured Latin designers showing impressive clothing and accessory pieces. While this was the first time for the Moda X Mexico show, I certainly hope it’s not the last.
I was very lucky to help with a fun kickoff event for Austin Fashion Week. Last year I helped produce and shoot a fashion television show called Style Queens which is a six part series show featuring the style of many celebrities. I worked on the show for Taylor Swift with director Tara Pirnia. It was a great night seeing the show, mixing and mingling with the great Austin cast and a scholarship was awarded to Universtiy of Texas Senior designer Jay Martinez thanks to Marcos Fund. Food, drinks and great sponsors made for a night I’ll never forget.
The kickoff outfit was my favorite outfit during Austin Fashion Week. Knowing that I was going to be photographed and I wasn’t actually going to be working behind the camera, I was on a big search to find the perfect outfit. I received inspiration from a fellow over 50 blogger who had the pants featured from Zara and I did a little research and found the outfit had a jacket. It was perfect.
The runway shows at the JW Marriott featured three nights of collections from familiar Project Runway names and from local impressive newbies. The fashions were great and until 2018, that’s a wrap.
