It’s all about local fashion in South Florida this month and it’s happening in Delray Beach.
Local Mom Scoop has had the pleasure of covering Delray Fashion Week for the last three years. It’s a celebration of spectacular fashion, local designers, art and beauty.
The 4th annual Delray Beach Fashion Week created by the Downtown Development Authority and the Downtown merchants features local designs and diverse fashions that will take center stage at the fashion runway events, designer showcase, fashion luncheon, Stiletto Race, and for the first time a Boutique Pop Up Shopping Event.
This year I have some exciting news.
We share local places, fashion finds, blogger advice, the question of the day and hilarious ways to keep your sanity through motherhood. On Wednesday, we will be hosting a special edition show from Downtown Delray at 6:00pm before the Runway Show starts.
Here is the Delray Fashion Week Scoop.
Events will take place throughout Downtown Delray Beach and many are free to the public.
Tickets for the Delray Beach Designer Show, Fashion Luncheon, and runway seats at the fashion shows can be purchased at each event or online at www.delrayfashionweek.com. Raffle tickets will be included with each event ticket purchased and will also be available for $5. The raffle prize package valued at $1,000 includes: a 2 night/3 day hotel stay; spa, restaurant and retail gift certificates; tickets to Old School Square events and Delray Yacht Cruises. All event and raffle tickets sold throughout Delray Beach Fashion Week benefit the Achievement Centers for Children and Families.
