The Austin Fashion Week Runway shows kick off tonight, marking the event's ninth year to present the fashion industry's latest trends to the Austin community. The event will be divided into five categories based on designer and collection: Stars, 512, Discover, Capsule and Gallery.
Austin Fashion Week's runway shows debut Thursday, May 18, at the JW Marriott. Each evening features eight full-length runway shows and nine mini-collections from Project Runway stars, independent designers from around the country and local designers on the rise. ORANGE compiled a list of designers to look for at Austin Fashion Week based on their previous work.
Bodysuits are a trend on the rise, and while they are similar in their basic structure, there are some cute and complex styles that require a unique taste. Since each bodysuit type elicits a distinct personality, ORANGE has created a short quiz to help match the perfect bodysuit to your personal style.
As Black History Month comes to a close, it is the opportune time to reintroduce ways in which the African diaspora created a subset of American culture rooted in West African traditions. Looking at the role fashion played in the lives of black women during the 20th century, ORANGE Magazine connects their style to the past conditions of Black America.
