I can’t believe that Austin Fashion Week is almost here! Beginning May 3rd and running through May 11th, AFW is an event that will be talked about all year! This year AFW will be celebrating 5 years and boy do they have a lot in store for all you fashion lovers! I am looking forward to seeing the various local talent of clothing designers, hair stylist and makeup artist as they share their take on trends for the 2013 season. Some of my favorites that I am looking forward to seeing are:

L.A.M.B- May 8th
Lilly Lorraine- May 10th
Rare Trends- May 8th
Daniel Esquivel (Project Runway 2013 Contestant)- May 10th
Mandy Hernandez- May 11th

The first event of the week- Langford Market Presents: SMS Jewelry Designs’ Retail Showcase will be held at Langford Market on May 3rd from 3-7pm. Later that evening, Estilo and Rare Trends will host Austin Fashion Week Kickoff Party at the Estilo Showroom from 6-9pm in the 2nd street district. You definitely want to be there!

Finally, Austin Fashion Week will wrap on, Saturday, May 11th with the 5th Annual Awards Show at the Austin Music Hall at 6pm. Various awards will be given to local talent. Attendees will be treated to a display by local Austin favorites such as Kendra Scott, Boudoir Queen, Stephen Moser, Gail Chovan, Hair by Jackson Ruiz and Makeup by Mandy Hernandez. An after party to follow that you don’t want to miss!

AFW will the place to be and be seen! For more information on all the weeks’ events and ticket information, please visit http://fashionweekaustin.com
