Austin Fashion Awards Caps Off Fashion Week, August 10-18

Austin Fashion Awards: Austin Music Hall, Saturday August 18

By Anne Harris, 2:21PM, Tue. Jul. 24, 2012

It looks like Kendra Scott, Jessica Ciarla, and Ross Bennett will be showing at this year's Austin Fashion Awards. Hosted by Sandy McIlree of Mix 94.7, the show will not only feature runway collections with hair and make-up by the team at Jackson Ruiz Salon,

but also music by pop violinist Josh Vietti. The Awards ends a week that starts with "Shift Into Style" at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, which somehow combines Formula One with local fashion designers.

New "Golden Boot" categories this year include Rising Stars, Trailblazers, and Mash-Up Teams. The 2012 Advisory Board and Host Committee comprised of Allen Ruiz, Anne Marie Beard, Chad Harlan, Elizabeth Gibson, Eve Nicols, Justin Brown, Kendra Scott, Lance Avery Morgan, Linda Asaf, Lisa Brooks, Rochelle Rae, Sandra Antoun, and The Chronicle's own Stephen Moser will select award winners from a group of publicly nominated candidates.
