One of the Austin Fashion Week events I attended (although too briefly) was the Ultimate Girls Night Out at Dress Shop. Are you keeping up with the rest of my AFW event coverage so far? You can always subscribe to be sure!
Austin Fashion Week – Monday, August 16th – Dress Shop:
Jewelry by Taylor Moseley designs, makeup by Evie Evan, and a photo booth by She-n-He Photography were all part of the fun at Dress Shop’s Ultimate Girls Night Out on Monday evening, August 16th, part of the Austin Fashion Week festivities.
Guests got to shop for their perfect Fashion Week looks at Dress Shop and top it off with a great piece from Taylor Moseley, whose designer, Allison Taylor, worked alongside Megan Summerville on team Knickers for the mash-up team presentation shown during the runway show at Bright Lights, Idea City. (The team was also nominated for the Critics’ Choice award for Best Mash Up Team.) There were mini-makeovers from Evie Evan, cocktails, music, amazing giveaways and gift bags given to the first 50 guests.
Spotted at the event were Launch787’s own Matt Swinney and Carrie Crow, Touch of Sass owner Currie Bucher, Pickie Pie Productions’ Rachel Elsberry, and blogger Stephanie Marie Fraide. See the evidence (photographed by She-n-He Photography and Design) in the slide show, and be sure to check out the Facebook album for more fabulous photos.
Dress Shop’s owner, Leslie Gandy, will be featured in an upcoming interview piece, where she’ll dish about her experience when, in honor of both AFW and the store’s first anniversary since opening its doors on Congress Avenue, Dress Shop held events every day last week. The boutique was behind one of the first events to take place after the Austin Fashion Week Kick Off. Leslie hosted a fall fashion show and brunch at Fleming’s downtown near the store, with personal shopping afterward for guests of the showcase.
