Gainesville Fashion Week: Red Carpet and Art Show

It was only a Wednesday but with Gainesville Fashion Week on board, it was a Wednesday like no other.

Last night kicked off  Gainesville Fashion Week's 2010 season. Hosted in the Sharab Lounge, guests experienced two parties in one. Downstairs, invite-only guests were entertained by the Phobooth's picture studio, fed by Calico Jack's wraps and wings and The Truffle Cake Co. dainty desserts.

But upstairs an open art gallery allowed spectators to check out the work of fourteen local artists, ranging from photography, mixed medium pieces and paintings.

And guests got to awe over handmade jewelry by Courtney Lee Designs and Laurel B Jewelry upstairs too.

This was only the beginning. Coming up are three consecutive nights of amazing fashion designers with three designers per night. On Thursday night, Wolfgang, Calzatura, and Kenneth McCraney will be showing at the Vault. The show starts at 8 p.m.

If you haven't purchased your tickets yet, buy them at Event Brite. Here's the direct link to tonight's show!
