Invite your friends and reserve your seat for Tucson’s premier fashion show brought to you by Tucson Young Professionals, Friday, September 19, 2014 at the Historic Fox Theatre. Since 2008, the Fashion Show has provided an upscale social event for young Tucsonans that promotes engagement with our community and attracts more than 500 attendees.
The night begins with an exclusive VIP reception in the Buffalo Exchange VIP room where you will have the opportunity to mingle with the models and designers, as well as your fellow Tucson Professionals. VIP guests will enjoy appetizers from the Sausage Deli and cupcakes from Sweet Bean Cupcakery. VIP guests will also sample wines brought to you by Carlson Creek Vineyards and beer tastings from Barrio Brewery. VIP participants will also have front row seats to the Fashion Show as well as receive a gift bag filled with samples, gear, and discounts to local businesses.
This will be followed by a spectacular runway show featuring styles inspired by some of the most influential, musical genres. Fashion and music have a long history and many designers have drawn inspiration from it. They have always been intertwined as they both reflect our society’s creativity and aesthetics at any given time.
This year, fashion show producer and Tucson Fashion Group founder Yekatherina Bruner will present a diverse ensemble of local designers, fashion stylists, boutiques and brands including: Buffalo Exchange, Phillip Manus, Crown The Shop AKA Cry Baby Couture, Francesca’s, Leyda Herring, Swindlers, Grand Central Clothing, Shalon Morris, Fashion Label Boutique, and Banana Republic.
Following the show, the party continues with the official Tucson Fashion Show After Party at Playground (278 East Congress).
Profits from the event will benefit Tucson Young Professionals and Literacy Connects.
