Why I Love The Austin Fashion Community

This past weekend, I volunteered with Fashion X at a benefit fashion show for Hurricane Harvey. The very idea was brilliant – fashion and charity mixed together to help out neighbors affected by the very tragic natural disaster.

The entire event was inspirational. The team literally had less than two weeks to find a venue, get with designers to show their lines, wrangle up some volunteers, and put together an event that should very well take much longer to organize.

In the end, over three hundred people attended the event and everything ran so smoothly. And there was a such a good atmosphere. It was wonderful seeing so many people come together so quickly for such a good reason, to mix passions with helping out our fellow humans.

Maybe I didn’t get to see the shows (thus, no pictures!), but it was truly a wonderful experience. I’m so happy that I was able to help out!

And also, just in general, it’s been amazing to see everyone come together to donate and support those affected by Hurricane Harvey. That’s what I call Texas Strong!
