Runway Day Fun

In Designers, Events, Fashion on October 4, 2011 at 3:35 pm

Fashion week is filled with fun fashion events like cocktail receptions, red carpet premieres and soirees… but what makes fashion week so fab is runway day! It’s the heart of the event! The runway show is a celebration of Tampa Bay and surrounding area’s fashion, art and creativity. We started the night by shopping our boutique vendors, mingling with friends and posing for pictures in the boutique area. Then it’s off to the showroom! Before we discuss the runway dazzle and drama, let’s look back at the pre-show festivities.

But first… a big thank you to our boutique vendors for the pre-show fun!

Make Fashion History with PURE Haus!

In Designers, Events, Fashion, Updates on August 5, 2011 at 10:38 am

Want to be a part of Tampa Bay fashion history? Then help us make this cool new project a reality – PURE Haus, the first ever Pop Up Retail Experience for Tampa Bay shoppers!

Designers will come together to create the pop-up store for Tampa Bay fashion consumers. With your help, we’ll be able to make it a reality!

Here are the details that we’ve put together to better explain PURE Haus:

WHAT: PURE (Pop-Up Retail Experience) Haus

WHO: Local Bay Area Designers including: Ivanka Ska, Essence Flowers, Kimberly Hendrix, Dali Hernandez, Dolly Donshey and more! Click here to watch a video on why YOU should get involved.

WHEN: Pledge deadline is August 19th. Pop-up slated to open in September or December for 30 days only.

WHERE: Our dream location is International Plaza

WHY: Because Tampa Bay has style that needs to be seen! Plus, you get free stuff with every donation and there is NO LOSS to you. Your pledge is only accepted if we make our goal. If we don’t, your credit card is never charged. If we do make our goal, you get a cool item for your pledge and get to shop some of Tampa Bay’s best designers!

Every pledge of $10 or more will receive their name on the pledge wall and be a part of Tampa Bay fashion history!

HOW: Click here to make your pledge donation.

We must meet the fundraising goal of $18,000 in order to cover the costs of the pop-up store project. If 700 people contribute $25, we’ve reached our goal!

Join us in this collaborative project and help to give local designers a retail outlet to grow their brand and customer base in the community, bringing them together in one place. Every little bit helps so get involved… and make fashion history!
