The local catwalk heats up this week as Birmingham Fashion Week descends on the city (specifically, Pepper Place)! Local and national designers and boutiques, models and members of the fashion and beauty industries will unite for three nights of runway shows as well as design and modeling competitions. And yes, Same Chic Different Day will be there! Having reviewed the list of featured designers (including Smith Sinrod’s contemporary yet classic looks and What Goes Around Comes Around NYC’s vintage aesthetic), I can’t wait to see who rips the runway. The lineup promises a definite mix of exciting perspectives, capped off with after parties at local nightspots and restaurants each evening, a Bridal Day Saturday and the Mercedes Marathon on Sunday morning.
Who will be spotted (and what will they be wearing) at the Gus Mayer kick-off party this evening? Who will be the Face of Birmingham Fashion Week 2012? Which Emerging Designer and which Rising Design Star will take top honors? Which designer’s line should you be wearing, and why? Stay tuned!
