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 Clearwater Designer Co-Op, in partnership with the City of Clearwater, will present the first bi-annual “Clearwater Fashion Week” from September 2nd to 7th in downtown Clearwater’s Cleveland Street District.
The Clearwater Designer Co-Op was founded by Clearwater residents including well known designer, Craig Taylor, who spearheaded Clearwater Fashion week. The group, whose members include professionals and volunteers alike, has the purpose of helping the City promote the Cleveland Street District by spotlighting it with a week-long series of fashion events and a highend designer sample sale.
