2015 South Walton Fashion Week, Oct. 7-10

Posted on Friday, October 2, 2015


When someone says Fashion Week, most think of metropolitan cities such as New York and Paris. But now fashionistas can enjoy the fun of viewing the latest fall fashions right here along the beaches of Northwest Florida!

South Walton Fashion Week (SWFW) was created in 2013 by the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton Countyas a way to showcase South Walton’s popular and growing fashion scene while raising funds for the organization’s Art For All Program, which provides much-needed funding to artists, students, teachers and arts organizations.

The 3rd Annual South Walton Fashion Week celebrates high fashion by featuring emerging designers and models, local and national designers, runway shows, trunk shows and parties. The main event takes place in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, which includes the Style Lounge, a VIP lounge and a full bar, along with the main theatre and runway.

Special highlights for the 2015 South Walton Fashion Week include high profile judges including PRJOECT RUNWAY’s Amanda Valentine and Celebrity Stylist Claudia Fowler.

In 2013, Valentine was selected to compete on the 11th Season of Emmy Award Winning PROJECT RUNWAY. After placing 8th and showing a collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Valentine returned to styling and launched her clothing line VALENTINE VALENTINE. In 2014, Valentine was voted back by fans to compete on Season 13 of PROJECT RUNWAY where she placed second and again showed a stellar collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

Fowler has been a stylist for two decades and has worked with some of the most stylish artists in the music business, including Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Trisha Yearwood, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Julie Roberts, Alan Jackson and many others. These judges will join many other emerging designers and models, providing their critique and opinions of the featured runway fashions. It will be a fun weekend of shopping and fashion at the beach.

Once you’re inspired by the shows head over to Silver Sands Premium Outlets for incredible savings on designer brands.
