Founded in 2007 by Willow Shambeck and Melixa Carbonell, Park Avenue Fashion Week is a weeklong event that takes place every year in Winter Park, Florida. There are trunk shows, designer displays, store specials and intimate get togethers where you can meet designers and experience new venues in the area during this week.
To conclude the week packed with fashion events, the renowned Park Avenue Fashion Week Runway Show takes place in Central Park's West Meadow on the last day.
The park is completely transformed with a 20,000-square foot, air-conditioned tent encompassing a full runway and a lounge area for VIP guests. Modeled after New York Fashion Week's Bryant Park, PAFW is home to some of Central Florida's most influential socialites and trendsetters.
This year I had the honor of covering the 8th annual Park Avenue Fashion Week 2014 Runway Show.
One of the first looks of the night, was the bridal gown collection. There were two particular gowns that I absolutely loved that had non-traditional and sexy designs.
The Park Avenue Runway Show was the place to be. It was a packed house!
The Obie and Lil Shawn Morning Show were presenters.
Loved Estee's dress! Something I would definitely wear.
The Park Avenue Fashion Week team donated part of the proceeds to the Foundation for Foster Children. So happy this organization will benefit from this donation and enrich the lives of children placed in foster care.
I'd say the night was an overall success!
Such a fun and fashion forward event! Great job to everybody involved in making it come to life. Especially Shel Marks PR for inviting me, coordinating and putting together this amazing runway show.
Can't wait to see what's in store for next year's show!
