Get your passport to fashion! The inaugural, annual Tulsa Fashion Week debuts Sept. 15 – 19 set on a course to accelerate Tulsa’s fashion industry.
Using successful global fashion events as models, Tulsa Fashion Week organizers have been working with community partners and local businesses throughout the city to design events to attract fashion-conscious audiences, encourage economic activity and tourism and spur future, continued growth of the fashion industry in Tulsa.
Among the designers and labels featured in weekend runway shows are Joanna Hoang, Jessica Lynn, Kaceey Black, Nicole Moan, Alexis Monsanto, Nine Muses (designers Jerry Matthews and Francesca Viamonte), Stephen Goudeau, Orlando Dugi, and Danny Nguyen. Events during the week will also feature work by emerging designers and fashion photographers.
“Interest from designers has been very strong, enough to warrant adding a Friday runway show at the Mayo Hotel. Tulsa Fashion Week events will culminate with a grand finale, red carpet runway event Saturday, Sept. 19 at Tulsa International Airport Omni Air Transport Hangar 38,” says Tina Terry with SRO Productions.
