Most ten-year-olds don’t seem this grown up. This year marks the 10-year-anniversary of Austin Fashion Week’s runway collections, presented by Fashion X Austin, will be April 5 through April 7. You may know that Fashion X Austin’s Fashion Week is the largest week of fashion events in Texas and the 4th largest fashion week in the United States.
In honor of the anniversary, lifestyle expert and designer Katie Kime will be designing the runway with execution assistance from Caplan Miller…with the inspiration of florals. Along with the runway collections will be a gallery of designers as well. Also, this is ModXMan co-founder Matt Swinney’s brainchild.
The Fashion X Austin Week Style Setters is an honor given to Austin’s most fashionable philanthropists, with a portion of proceeds going to the Style Setter’s charity of choice. The 2018 Style Setters are Venus Strawn, whose ticket sales will benefit the Rise School of Austin and Kirstin Ross, whose ticket sales will benefit Dell Children’s Medical Center.
