This is Flavia, one of of your GFW committee members, keeping you up to speed on the latest Gainesville Fashion Week event!!
Gainesville Fashion Week has been working really hard to reach out to the student population this season. All of you fashionable students should definitely come out tomorrow night, March 23rd, to the Gainesville Fashion Week-Coveted List Fashion Showcase!! The event will be held at the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom from 7-9pm! I can't emphasize how much hard work our team has done to put on this event, and we are soo happy that it is finally here! Today we had a really successful "flash-mob" event in the Plaza of the Americas, and tomorrow is the big show.
Here's a little info about the event:
Our goal was to put together a showcase that all women on UF's campus could relate to. The show consists of outfits that flatter all body types, heights, and skin tones. There will be 25 looks that are spring-inspired and ultra-feminine. The great part is that the event is a "sneak peek" for Gainesville Fashion Week, as the looks were pulled from boutiques and fashion designers that will have their own runway shows during the April GFW events. The best part is, it's free! I really hope that you'll join me tomorrow evening for the event!
We will have my personal favorite DJs, Thomas and Ernie, playing bangers throughout the night. There will be a little red-carpet entrance, tons of photographers, and the most chic guys and gals in town present at the event. You can also learn about Coveted List, which is an amazing website that we hope to work with in the future. Looks were provided by Dahlia Boutique, Wolfgang Boutique, Mesh Boutique, and designer BobbyK.
This past Saturday, I held the fitting for the event at my apartment. We had soo much fun styling looks for the fashion show and working with our wonderful models.
Here are some snapshots from the fitting:
Trust me, tomorrow's event is going to be one to remember! Hope to see you there!!
