Join CL and the International Academy of Design & Technology tonight as we celebrate local designers at the CL Style Issue Release Party and IADT Fashion Show.
IADT students made quite a splash at Fashion Week Tampa Bay this year. CL Style Editor Leslie Joy Ickowitz particularly liked the work of Alexandra Lin and Gigi Guerra, whose black and gold full-length coat was, in Leslie’s words, “swoon-worthy.”
Equally swoon-worthy are the nine local fashion designers Leslie spotlighted for this week's Style Issue: Dolly Donshey, Sandra Hagen, J. Hendrix, Lorena Knezevic, Audrey "Pat" McGhee, Stephen Ogaga, Elizabeth Carson Racker, Rhonda Shear, and Rachana Suri. The fashions of all nine walked the runway during Fashion Week Tampa Bay.
There will be complimentary light hors d’oeuvres and beverages at the party. Arrive early and take a tour of IADT’s new campus to see where fashion happens.
Thurs. Dec. 12. Open House mixer, 6 p.m. Fashion show, 7 p.m. IADT Tampa campus, 3725 W. Grace St., Tampa.
Brought to you by The Fashion Movement, Bow Ties and Clutches makes its return to the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts after its triumphant debut last year — and not to mention earning itself a Creative Loafing Best of the Bay award.
