Didn’t make it to New York Fashion Week? Not to worry. Beginning April 2 and going through April 9, Richmond hosts its 3rd Annual RVA Fashion Week, an event that has become so star-studded, glamorous and interactive, it could rival any major city’s runway. And this year, we’re proud to announce our own official event at The Wine Loft in Short Pump.
Highlighting both nationally recognized names and local talent, RVA Fashion Week is committed to bringing opportunities to anyone who wants to be involved, from local businesses to up-an-coming student designers, photographers to choreographers, stylists to production staff. Organizers even want to showcase local talent with a brand new feature this year, a fashion film contest that asks, “what is fashion to you?”
Our event, “Uncorked,” will be held next Tuesday, April 5, at The Wine Loft in West Broad Village. The two part fashion and jewelry show starts at 7:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Live models will be adorned with designs from Kelly Farlow, Chelsea Nicolas, and more. Enjoy live music by John Reinhold and a selection of fine wines that available for purchase.
Although the event is free, a limited number of VIP tickets are also available for $10, which includes light hors d’oeuvres and wine (click here to purchase online).
There’s something for everyone. Here’s the full RVA Fashion Week Lineup:
