It’s that time of year again — Delray Beach Fashion Week! DBFW is one of our favorite weeks of the year because it gives us the opportunity to connect with all of the great fashion and beauty businesses in Delray Beach.
That being said, these opportunities aren’t just limited to the fashion and lifestyle businesses of the world. YOU can all come, too! Here is what you need to know about what is going on this year:
We’ll be celebrating the spectacular fashion, local designers, art and beauty at the 4th annual Delray Beach Fashion Week created by the Downtown Development Authority and downtown merchants. Local designs and diverse fashions will take center stage at the fashion runway events, designer showcase, fashion luncheon, “Stiletto Race,” and — for the first time — boutique pop-up shopping event.
Delray on the Runway
A highlight of Delray Beach Fashion Week is “Delray on the Runway.” The January 26 event at Il Bacio invites guests to dress for a “white party,” and includes a runway show, reception and silent auction. One of our favorite designers, Amanda Perna, will be a host, and your LLScene girls will be styled by Amanda herself!
Events will take place throughout downtown Delray Beach and many are free to the public. Tickets for the Delray Beach Designer Show, Fashion Luncheon and runway seats at the fashion shows can be purchased at each event.
