Style Week Pittsburgh- Fashion Mixer

Hey hey Thrifters!

On November 17th 2016 I attended the Style Week Pittsburgh Holiday party entitled the Fashion Mixer, at the V Lounge. I had so much fun! I got to meet fashion designers, entrepreneurs, models, musicians, and other fashionistas from all over the city.

Right when I came in there was a red carpet. Perfect for this occasion. Everyone was so stylish, so it seemed only fitting to have a red carpet and professional photographer to snap a few pics.

During the event there was a fashion show with designs by Leesa Kassler. The pieces she showed were cocktail and evening dresses. Each design had sequence, fringe or feathers. Check out my IG video here to see a short runway video of her looks.

At the end of the event Wadria Taylor, founder of Style Week Pittsburgh, announced the "10 to watch for in 2017" This talented group of women and men are change makers in the fashion, beauty, music and media industries.

Here are the top 10 to watch in 2017 :
