The big show for Tampa Bay Fashion Week 2012 turned out to be a fashion extravaganza, the likes of which I have never seen! From a fencing-inspired collection to corsets and feathers, creativity was certainly at its finest.
Who doesn’t love a girl who knows how to hold a sword? Inspired by the age old sport of fencing, House of Donshey presented a fabulous collection filled with sexy corsets and dazzling accessories.
In the spirit of corsets, feathers and everything fabulous, Wicked Betty also presented a delightfully sinful collection.
Between House of Donshey and Wicked Betty, there was a plethora of fantasy, sparkle and sex appeal. Who doesn’t love that?

For those who may be feeling a bit fashion starved, please try to hang on for a couple more weeks. Tampa Bay Fashion Week is about to unleash more fashion than your little eyes can handle.
Think for a moment what amazing possibilities could arise when the owners of a posh salon transform their beauty talents into fashion. Ashton Anderson will be unveiling for the first time their great artistic vision in fabric form. As I wait anxiously, I have a delightful feeling that the runways of Tampa Bay will never be the same.
What else can you expect to see at Fashion Week? The House of Donshey will present unique pieces created from designer Dolly Donshey’s passion for creating beauty out of “ugliness”.
“I don’t know why I design the way I do. I’ve just always preferred the darker side to life. I love the beauty in something ugly that can be transformed into something visually pleasing. With every collection I create I just pull inspiration from my life at that moment…”

Known for her award winning conceptual films and theatrical shows, Dolly’s design aesthetic has been described as “Edgy Elegance”. Any collection that incorporates leather, fur, feathers, lace, spikes, studs and crystals is surely one you will want to keep an eye on.
These are just two of the fabulous designers you can look forward to seeing at Tampa Bay Fashion Week. Are you excited yet?
