Park Avenue Fashion Week

Growing up in Winter Park during the height of the “preppy” style (think late 70’s and early 80’s), Park Avenue has always been representative of all things fashionable for me. On a street where a Ralph Lauren store couldn’t seem last, other unique designers, ritzy boutiques, and high end stores seem to set the trends instead, creating a very specific Central Florida look.  So, I was very excited to see this year’s Winter Park fashions during Park Avenue Fashion Week.

A friend and I attended the afternoon show, which while it wasn’t a jam-packed full house, it still bubbled with excitement due to the great atmosphere inside the tent. Having attended some tent shows in NY, I was impressed with Winter Park’s effort to recreate an authentic experience for its attendees.  I was also pleased the designers used local models, of all ages, and featuring many shapes and sizes.

Here is the video I took of the show…enjoy!

  1. I’ve never even heard of Park Avenue Fashion Week. Is this an annual event? When does it take place?

  2. It is an annual event that takes place in October. Lots of fun! Hopefully word will get out a little better next year as it is an event that is well worth promoting!
