Savannah is famous for its history, architecture and high-end restaurants but it is also a mecca for fashion. Fun-loving fashionistas can enjoy a pleasant getaway or vacation in the historic city of Savannah, GA and participate in their favourite pastime during Savannah Fashion Week. This annual show features a collection of independent boutiques and local designers hosting a series of events in late April/early May.
What’s Happening during Savannah Fashion Week?
Savannah Fashion Week was started in 2010 by a group of local independent retailers wanting to promote fashion in Savannah. It was such a success it has become an annual event.
As well as raising awareness for many independent local boutiques, retailers, designers and businesses in the fashion trade, Savannah Fashion Week also donates a portion of the ticket sales to a local charity. The participating businesses put on a series of fashion-oriented in-store events to show the unique style of different designers and participating retailers.
Although events change from year to year, some of the past events included special events in each of the participating stores with promotions on classic and wearable designs brought in by featured designers. As well as picking out some beautiful outfits to try on, visitors will find the stores offer special deals and even cupcakes to happy shoppers!
The Runway Show in Savannah Fashion Week
The highlight of the Fashion Week which all the other events are leading up to is the exciting runway show which takes place in beautiful Forsyth Park, Savannah. The stage is set beneath the moss-draped oaks on Gaston and Bull Streets and provides a wonderful atmosphere for enjoying an evening of high-class entertainment.
Tickets to this grand finale event are in high demand and can be booked online from the Savannah Fashion Week website. As the event is a fundraiser for the Savannah Arts Academy, you may want to be a Preferred Patron which includes preferred seating and an exclusive pre-party event. Or there is the Angel Patron Ticket, which will get you preferred seating, the exclusive pre-party and the support of a scholarship for a deserving up and coming artist to attend Savannah Arts Academy.
