Austin Fashion Week: Driskill Runways – Night One

16 Aug
From the 10-year old Austin local designer, IsabellaRose, to the Ontario based swimwear designer, Ashley Zaba…the first night of Austin Fashion Week’s Driskill Runways was a blast! Sitting on the front row (maybe someday I’ll be doing this at New York fashion week) provided an intimate experience to check out the designs, up close.
Runway designs by: Lisa Kaminski (Jacksonville, FL), Ashley Zaba (Barrie, Ontario), Isabella Rose Fashion (Austin, TX), BOBBYK Design (Gainesville, FL), and Tess Designs (Austin, TX).

On the red carpet with Tina Downton, of The Diva’s Closet. She is wearing a Marciano leather dress and Christian Louboutin pumps. I’m wearing a Jill Stuart corset dress (similar here), Nina sequin pumps, Banana Republic necklace, and Michael Kors watch.
Arriving in style, in our Gucci Fiat!
My fab mani c/o Salon O, in the lounge. Navy nails with pistachio on the ring finger (if you haven’t tried the latest trend of painting your ring finger a different color, get on the bandwagon)!

With Ross Bennett at the VIP pre-party at Parkside, where I got an up close and personal look at his newest addition to his line: these RBC Perf Gloves. I tried them on and they are super soft, high quality (manufactured by Hermes), look great, and are touch screen compatible!
Ross Bennett’s wife, Erin, modeling the RBC Perf Gloves with their Gucci Fiat (we had matching cars that week!). I’ll be doing a special feature on these amazing gloves, next month.

    Your nails look great. Love the bustier top too! Looks like a fun time!

      Thanks Taylor!! I loved the nail polish selection that they had at the O Salon lounge. And bonus: their polish is organic and vegan. It lasts longer, without the harmful fumes!
