Festivities Begin for NOVA Fashion Week

Get ready, fashionistas, because NOVA Fashion Week begins tonight.

Although much smaller than fashion weeks in style hubs such as New York and Paris, the event brings both established and up-and-coming designers to Artisphere (1101 Wilson Blvd) to show off their collections and to give a peek at emerging fashion trends.

Festivities technically kick off tonight (Wednesday) with a VIP cocktail reception, but public availability for tickets to that event will be very limited. The main draws are the fashion shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and the free networking event on Saturday afternoon.

Thursday’s fashion show will benefit foster care non-profit Blessed Haven. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. show, and tickets start at $25. Tickets for the shows on Friday and Saturday start at $25 and begin at 7:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., respectively. Tickets are required for all festivities, including Saturday’s free networking session, and can be purchased online.

More information can be found on the NOVA Fashion Week website, or through updates on Facebook and Twitter.

    Not really surprised at the lack of comments after 90 minutes since this event is at the Artisphere. But speaking of fashion, tomorrow Sam’s Food Truck is featuring a barbecued free range skirt steak sandwich infused with local garlic and tamari with smoked provolone cheese, avocado crema, and pickled ruby chard on ciabatta bread.

        Gaga already beat you to it.

    Instead of “high fashion,” it would be great to see displays of comfortable, attractive and affordable clothing, shoes and accessories that could replace the yuck that is all too prevalent now.

      maybe one of the “emerging fashion trends” is comfortable, attractive, affordable clothing.
