Fashion Week offers city a makeover
Sacramento has a Fashion Cleaners, an Ell a and had International Cabaret, however the query of the week is: Does capital metropolis have style?
The Blend Downtown is one of a handful of Sacramento night spots with a costume code aimed at endorsing an upscale clients. Ascend the stairway to the roof top bar on any given nightly and you will see females in stylish dresses and menfolk in crunchy button-down shirts, however it will not be hard to discover more than a few customers that barely fit the meaning of “dressed up.” Through any objective amount, Sacramento is no New York, Las Vegas or Los Angeles, wherever everyone is apparently on audition or prepared to shoot a periodical spread. It is not even San Francisco.
“In Sacramento, there are not that numerous people whoever dress up,” said Jon Wayne, specialized stage director and self-announced fashionista. “There are very insufficient places wherever you could dress up and not feel over -dressed.”
The persons behind Sacramento Style Week are trying to alteration that casual culture. The week of occasions, which accomplishes today with fall-winter designer show case at California Automobile Museum, purposes to raise the capital metropolis’s style sense whereas highlighting certain of the greatest Northern California designers, said Duane Ram, whoever started Fashion Week 8 years ago.
Sacramento Fashion Week stands little similarity to its complements in innovative New York, Milan, London, and Paris, wherever world-famous designers showcase their efforts to the world’s topmost retailers and style journalists. Sacramento Style Week is more like Sacramento International Auto Show. The auto show conveys the world’s auto makers to Sacramento, whereas Beer Week rejoices local brew masters. Fashion week does slightly of both.
Fashion Week is not the only game in city. The Pavilions shop center has hosted a quantity of successful style events, and late summer Launch Anniversary included a style show containing designers from TV design shows “Fashion Star” And “Project Runway”
“Stages like Sacramento Style Week and Launch promote (fashion) awareness,” said Clay Nutting, proprietor of Sacramento’s Lowbrau Bierhall plus one of the Launch makers. “It is an occasion to highlight somewhat that is not on publics’ radar.”
