Fashion Live! Downtown is intended to be an event that changes the way other cities view the Tampa Bay area on the fashion landscape. Tampa Bay has a tremendous talent pool of undiscovered fashion and accessory designers and this fast growing area seeks to be mentioned in the same breath as other fashion forward cities.

The tremendous talents of young and emerging Fashion Designers, Stylists, Hair Stylists, Make-up Artists, Models, Music Performers and other visionaries in the fashion and creative arts fields will be on display at this event.

Fashion Live! Downtown, which is slated for the Tampa Convention Center {Riverwalk outdoors area} on Saturday November 17, 2007 will help open new doors for Designers of garments and accessories as well as Fashion Boutiques, Make-up Artists, Stylists, Hair Stylists, Music Performers, Photographers and others in the fashion, music and creative arts industry by fusing fashion with music, art and other creative talents.

For the 2007 collections, designers were carefully selected from a pool of talented applicants whose garments and accessories were thoroughly scrutinized by our selection panel.

Fashion Live! Downtown will be open for the public to view. Fashionistas, styleholics and fashion industry professionals, fashion lovers and our sponsors will be given the opportunity to view and purchase garments directly.

All garments showcased on the runway will be available for sale after the show.

Musical performances will also be presented to our audience during the fashion show. Artist will have their works on display throughout the event’s venue and on the runway.

Fashion Live! Downtown is a concept born from the creative mind of Lacey B. Smith (The Fashion Movement).
