Austin Fashion Week: Get Out and Shop

By Anne Harris, July 14, 2009, 12:37pm, Chronique

As most of you know by now, Austin Fashion Week (July 13-19) started off with a bang at Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz with the Austin premiere of Brüno, in which flamboyant Austrian fashionista Brüno (Sacha Baron Cohen) takes his show to America. Guests were encouraged to dress in their Sunday-worst fashion "Don'ts".

The exciting part of the week for us is that boutiques and salons all over town are hosting the wares of local designers. For a complete line-up of participants as well as the schedule of events, check out

And if you're serious about local style, you won't miss the Austin Fashion Awards on Sunday, July 19 at the Long Center. Four-packs of tickets are now available (with the use of a promotional code provided on the Fashion Week site) here at Front Gate. For this you should definitely choose the Sunday-best fashion "Do's" from your closet.

See you Sunday!
