Austin Fashion Week was one fantastic time, but unfortunately it did have to come to an end. The week closed at ACL Studios at the W Hotel with runway shows, an edgy host and lots of awards for some of Austin's favorite local talents.
I am amazed by the new ACL Studio and it could not have looked any better with a fabulous runway and gorgeous people everywhere to close Austin Fashion Week. Nationally syndicated radio host, Kim Iverson, certainly kept the crowd on their toes with her edgy wit and several dress changes. I was very excited to present one of the first awards of the night (Best Hairstylist: Industry Choice) with KXAN reporter, Shannon Wolfstein. I'd be a liar if I said this hasn't been a fantasy of mine since I was a young girl. I've always wanted to present someone an award for all their hard work. Pretty cool! The night stayed enchanting with runway shows from Rory Beca, 81 Poppies, Gail Chovan and Linda Asaf. Everywhere you turned there seemed to be some impeccably dressed individual and why not? It was the closing night of Austin Fashion Week! I'm ready for next year!
