Fashion X Austin and Bernina Present BLANC

M.V.C.C. Austin

‘Tis the season to shop. With the spirit of the holidays among us, Fashion X Austin and Bernina presented BLANC, an event filled with stunning fashion presentations and pop-up shops to kick-off an early holiday shopping experience. With delicately hung lights that sparkled like stars, Fair Market was transformed into an intimate showroom of Texas-based designers, boutiques, and artisans.  Fashion presentations included Mysterious by NPN, Rare Trends, Wildflowers Boutique, Adrenne Yunger, and more. Between showcases, guests were invited to browse collections and sample unique products. The event closed with the crowning of the Bernina Blanc Design Challenge winner. Challenge hopefuls were asked to design a look that was primarily white inspired by the Swiss Alps. The fan vote winner went to the talented Venny Etienne for his regal two piece ensemble with geometric cutouts. The grand prize winner went to designer-on-the-rise Neil Marek for his beautifully matched crop-top and pants combo decked with a refined vest that draped to the floor. The entire evening celebrated local designers and inspired our winter wardrobes.

Special thanks to my photographer of the night, Myke B. The Label.

Photo Adventure with Photo.Jay

Walkin', after midnight

Walt Whitman once said, “STRANGER! if you, passing, meet me, and desire to speak to me, why should you not speak to me? And why should I not speak to you?” Social media has transformed a world of strangers into a community of creatives sharing a platform of self-expression. News feeds and social media streams have become art galleries featuring the world’s brightest talents.

Once strangers now friends, I came across Photo.Jay’s IG and was instantly drawn to his unique angles and breathtaking views of the city. Jay leaves no rooftop unexplored as he photographs Austin’s luminous skyline. He doesn’t shoot for a living, yet, but I have no doubt that this self-taught photographer will someday make his passion his career.
