With the pitter-patter of the rain outside, guests made their way into La Zona Rosa for day two of Austin Fashion Week’s Runways and Marketplace series. With the GILT pop-up shop in front of the entrance, guests had the opportunity to get a little shopping in before seeing the shows for the night.
Kicking off the night, Krystle Holnes showed her KHG by Krystle Holnes collection. The line was filled with beautiful pieces for evening and resort wear. Bright colors echoed down the runway, Holnes showed a variety of looks including flowing pants, dresses and skirts.
The next line that took the stage was Megan Summerville’s line of hand-dyed silk bras and panties. Light blues, classic black and white, and a variety of other colors. The crowd did go a little crazy when Summerville sent some of her men’s collection down the runway.
Sheaffa, a New York-based designer, was also not afraid of the bright colors, sending fuchsia dresses down the runway. Sheaffa was also not afraid of patterns, using florals and stripes.
During the intermission, guests had the opportunity to visit the marketplace where featured designers Lauren Luna, Jamie Slye Designs, Mirta Tummino Studio, Jodi Rae Designs and Liz James Designs showcased a variety of accessories. From hand-crafted shoes to delicate jewelry to beautiful headpieces, guests had a variety of options.
