For the past dozen years, TRIBEZA has brought together Austin’s creative forces to stage their own Style Week. What started as a runway show has grown into a series of events highlighting the city’s many talented fashion designers, makers, culinary wizards and their wares.
This year, we’re especially excited this year about “Dinner X Design,” a chic meal and party staged by top interior designers teamed up with boldface culinary stars. The 2015 edition of Style Week, which runs from September 24-October 1, includes a collaboration with presenting sponsor Katie Kime, the up-and-coming design star who is opening her first storefront this month in Austin.
Check out the full schedule of events below and get your tickets now…they’re guaranteed to sell out quickly!
