Sponsor Shout-Out

Shout-out to some of our Tampa Bay Fashion Week 2011 sponsors:

Fashion Team LA

Two fab gals are better than one! And Fashion Team LA proves it! Fashion Team LA is a collaboration of wardrobe stylist/image consultant, Laura Hunt and professional photographer, Anne Phillips. Together they have created a fashion styling and photography dynamic duo experience where “L” brings the style and “A” brings the camera to the photo sessions. They’re a match made in fashion heaven! Learn more about the fashion dynamic duo here.


We love ourselves a magazine all about life and style! Yeah, there are fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire… but they don’t have what VERTICAL Tampa Bay magazine has – the unique Tampa Bay area. VERTICAL Tampa Bay Magazine is a virtual magazine that celebrates Tampa Bay fashion, flavor, travel, culture and beauty in every issue. Since Leslie Joy Ickowitz started the magazine in 2009, they’ve had high readership and involvement in the community. We love their stories and beautiful photography. They’ve even featured some of the TBFW designers, like Kimberly Hendrix (the picture above is Kimberly’s work on a previous cover)! Enjoy their latest (and 2nd anniversary) issue here.



Yelp was founded in 2004 to help people find great local businesses like dentists, hair stylists and mechanics. How it works is businesses setup a free account to post photos, promotions and message customers. Then customers write reviews about the business on their Yelp page. In addition to reviews, you can use Yelp to find events (like Fashion Week Tampa Bay), lists and to talk with other Yelpers. They automatically filter reviews submitted to avoid displaying any suspicious ones. Users can count on Yelp! Download their mobile app and go to their website to start yelping!

We’re so glad to have Fashion Team LA, VERTICAL Tampa Bay and Yelp onboard. They are helping us greatly with making this year’s Fashion Week Tampa Bay the best one yet! We appreciate all of their support. They truly care about providing all lovers of creativity a week of positive, high-fashion and artistic energy. Not only is this a “Sponsor Shout-Out” – it’s a big thank you!

Join in on all the fashion fun on Sept. 20! Fashion Week Tampa Bay will be Sept. 20 – 24, 2011 and tickets are still available – Get them while they last on our website!

Tampa Bay Pretty City

Pretty City is a website devoted to the belief that beauty is more than skin deep and that taking care of the physical body is just as important as taking care of the soul. We couldn’t agree more. With values such as honesty and truth in beauty, and a commitment to giving back, we are proud to have Pretty City as a sponsor of Tampa Bay Fashion Week 2011 for the fourth year! Founder Carolyn Brundage and her team at Pretty City are committed to making women prettier in some small way all while saving us money on products and services we need to look and feel our best.

The comprehensive database on the Pretty City website includes many of the country’s top spas, salons and med spas.  A variety of products and services are offered, plus a list of upcoming events at each of these venues in cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and Tampa Bay.  It is a complete beauty, leisure and wellness website where you can check out editorial reader and product reviews as well as service discounts and read about current trends. Serious beauty aficionados can even register on the Pretty City website as a VIPretty contributor – I hear the perks are lovely!
