• Haute Accessories Week Helps Boost The Local Economy In Tampa Bay

    HAUTE Accessories Week 2014

    HAUTE Accessories Week 2014

    While many may look at the upcoming HAUTE Accessories Week 2014 as a unique fashion experience of celebrating men’s and women’s accessories, the events hosted by The Fashion Movement do so much more.

    Understanding the need to help small businesses, The Fashion Movement team works to utilize almost 30 small businesses to put on one big weeklong event. From lighting to catering, makeup artists and musicians, The Fashion Movement helps to keep the area excited about fashion, while helping to boost the local economy, and providing entrepreneurs a chance to expand their reach.

    This will be the 4th Annual edition of HAUTE, a professional accessory fashion runway and trade show event produced by The Fashion Movement. The event expanded to a week in 2013 with the runway capping off the efforts of numerous people in the Tampa Bay area.

    Although the runway show which is the premiere event that will take place on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th during a night of shopping, entertainment and dining from 6 PM TO 11:00 PM at the HUNTER’S GREEN COUNTRY CLUB, 18101 Longwater Run Drive, Tampa, FL 33647, the entire week is full of activities for the fashion lover of all ages. Being able to enjoy a jewelry making class, and a Models Night Out party are also a part of bringing something new for the community to enjoy.

    Unlike other fashion shows and weeks around the U.S., HAUTE focuses on the accents of every day to formal wear instead of the garments. Attendees will be able to enjoy presentations on the latest accessory pieces ranging from jewelry, ties, hats, head pieces, bags and shoes.

    Helping to make this night a success for the fashion community, the following designers will be displaying their men’s and women’s items at HAUTE!: Baglanti (Tampa), Eric Green Collection (Orlando), JFH Collections (Tampa), Malchijah Hats (NY), Naje Designs (Tampa), Shola Designs (Tampa) and Tenique Designs (Jamaica).

    Those in attendance will also have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with the designers as well as be able to purchase pieces directly from the runway! Complimentary delectable desserts, drinks, and light entertainment will be on tap for the evening. The event will be the stylish kick-off for a month of fashion in Tampa Bay.
