This past weekend the 2nd Annual Chattanooga Fashion Week was held in Chattanooga, Tennessee!
The Elite Fashion Event was held right in the Heart of Chattanooga Art District!
The Kickoff started on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 with an event for the Designers!
Thursday October 3, Autism Awareness Day!
And Friday October 4, Monsoon in Hamilton Place hosted a Cupcakes and Lemonade all day long!
There were four days of celebrating the Fashion Arts in Chattanooga!
The Grand Finale ended with a Couture Runway Event on Saturday, October 5 on the RiverView Terrace Rooftop of the Hunter Museum of American Art.
The Finale included NINE original designers which included a Children's Show by Blue Eyes & Barefeet, The Girls of Grace by Southern Grace, Sada Fashions, Francine Elizabeth Designs, Yatra, Vic & Kimchi, Odelia Rouse, Navy & Pearls, and Ajnel.
Congrats to our own Model and Blogger Marquita Edwina who was showcased as a model for Southern Grace as well as Sada Fashions! It was a truly an honor! Both designers were different in many ways.
Southern Grace with their beautiful bright colors, patterns, beautiful jewelry and flowy material definitely made the consumer feel comfortable and beautiful! Perfect for summer time, the beach, weddings, or church!
Sada Fashions was perfect for a night out with your chicks, or just a down right down to business type of diva! The dress our model wore was fit for attitude. It was called, "ATTRACTIVE".
