The first ever Sarasota Fashion Week kicked off yesterday as volunteers, designers, press and guests mingled the night away. While tonight was the sponsorship appreciation party, tomorrow is the beginning of four days filled with runways, models, and the latest fashions.
As a volunteer I am thrilled to be apart of this exciting time for Sarasota's up and coming fashion scene.
The Style Swap, which is tomorrow from 9a-1p, is the main event I will be volunteering for, as I am so excited to be apart of it! It's a great way to be eco friendly and still get some really cute pieces to spice up your wardrobe. There will be DIY workshops on how to turn a t-shirt into a necklace, purse or scarf, the actual swap, where all swapaholics discover new, fabulous finds, and last but certainly not least, a style showcase where local fashion influencers will show off outfits created right there at the swap! So bring out your gently used clothes, jewelry, shoes, etc and swap your hearts out.
