Last night was the first night of Clearwater Fashion week and it was fabulous! I have been excited about this event since I first got the press release, but the opening night was beyond my expectations. What’s not to love about it? Designer clothes for sample sale prices, good food catered by the Belleair Country Club, and a runway fashion show featuring Gioffre, Roberto Cavalli, Whitley Kros and Craig Taylor!
The event was full of “who’s who” in Clearwater, and then some! Actor Jason Dohring stopped by, as well as Paul Wilson and designer Craig Taylor, who was instrumental in making this fantastic event possible. I even had to brush past the mayor to get my hands on my 45% off Rebecca Minkoff handbag! A percentage of the sales benefitted Ruth Eckerd Hall, so really it was a donation…
The event is free (which just makes it even more amazing), and continues every day until the 7th. Shopping begins at 11 am, and there are evening festivities at night, including an artist meet and greet with Lord Colin O’Neal and Alex Scott, and more spectacular runway shows. All activities take place in the lobby of Station Square Condos, and there are out door entertainment and vendors in Station Square Park.
There is so much talent in Downtown Clearwater, and it is delightful to see it all come together like this! There are plans to make this event bi-annual, and already I am looking forward to the next round!
