Delray Beach Fashion Week is Nearly Here!

Guess what time of year it is?! Time to trade in your South Florida “winter gear” and prepare for the fashions of Delray Beach Fashion Week Jan. 24-28, because they are HOT, HOT, HOT!

Launched by the Downtown Development Authority and downtown merchants, Delray Fashion Week brings the city together with spectacular fashion, local designers, art and beauty, so you can expect us to be front and center reporting on all of our favorite styles of the week. Please make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to tune in for live coverage.

It’s the 5th anniversary of Delray Beach Fashion Week so the DDA and designers are not holding back. The local designs and diverse fashions will take center stage at the fashion runway events, runway designer fashion and hair show, fashion luncheon, Stiletto Race, and a boutique fashion shopping event. Fashion events take place throughout the week and two of the runway fashion shows are free to the public to stand and watch. The 5th Anniversary VIP pass and reserved runway show seat tickets are available to purchase here, and 100 percent of the ticket sales throughout Delray Beach Fashion Week benefit the Achievement Centers for Children and Families and educational programming at Arts Garage.

Every year we see Delray Beach grow more and more with its abundance of fashion boutiques, designers, salons, restaurants and small businesses, so there’s nothing we love more than supporting that growth and getting the word out about amazing events like this. As a small business ourselves, we take pride in the growth and changes happening in Delray, thanks to the Downtown Development Authority. Some of our favorite designers and boutiques are participating such as The House of Perna, LoveRich Boutique, Periwinkle, The Sandy Shoppe and so many more!

Not sure what to expect from Delray Beach Fashion Week? Since this is one of our favorite local events of the year, we always go all out and try to attend as many events as we can. Here is a recap from the past, so you can familiarize yourselves a little better.
