Calling All Fashionistas…2018 Delray Beach Fashion Week is Here

Happy 5th birthday DBFW! For those not in the know, I’m talking about the 2018 Delray Beach Fashion Week. It’s coming up later this month when downtown will come alive with style! We attended several of the events last year and had a blast! I even found a dress for a gala. 🙂

From January 24-28 (2018), get ready to experience spectacular fashion, local designers, art and beauty at this special event created by the Downtown Development Authority and the Downtown merchants. The local designs and diverse fashions will take center stage at the fashion runway events, Downtown fashion designers and hair show, fashion luncheon, Stiletto Race and the Delray Beach Fashion Week Boutique Shopping Event.
