The first night of Athens Fashion Week was a huge success! I took almost 200 photos during the course of the evening, and I would have taken more but I was also simultaneously live tweeting from the runway for @AthFashionWeek. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the shows, each of which was absolutely amazing. We were so fortunate to have such talented designers!
LK Fashion Show, 4 p.m.
Emma Graham Fashion Show, 5 p.m.
Men’s Fashion Show, 6:30 p.m.
Judith March Show, 8 p.m.
Victoria’s Secret Swimsuit Show, 9 p.m.
Mark your calendars, glamazons, because the first annual Athens Fashion Week is less than a month away, and you will not want to miss this.
Combining the southern charm of Athens with the high style of top designers, this must-attend fashion event will be making its mark on the Classic City from April 20 – 22.
From specialty runway shows and trunk sales to black-tie events and exclusive after-parties, a complete schedule of events is available here. You can purchase your tickets directly from the link as well, and I recommend doing so sooner than later; they are going fast! With events such as a Victoria’s Secret swimsuit show and a meet-and-greet with Kim Zolciak from Real Housewives of Atlanta, it’s not difficult to imagine why.
For more information, visit the website at www.athensfashionweek.com. There are still opportunities to get involved for sponsors, hosts, models and volunteers. You can also connect with Athens Fashion Week on Facebook and Twitter (@athfashionweek) to get the latest updates about the event. Trust me glamazons, you will love it!

Ethan Cunningham, 21 years old
Favorite clothing stores: Neiman Marcus, Theory and Band of Outsiders
Favorite designers: Rag & Bone, Tom Ford and Nice Collective
Key wardrobe staples: I’m pretty minimalist, but I prefer the typical business casual attire. I like a broad selection of ties, although I typically go for the less “eye-popping styles.” However for me, socks should be as eccentric as they can get.
Go-to outfit: 7 For All Mankind jeans, Spring Court sneakers and a dark blue button down
Favorite men’s trend: The throwback to loafers and jeans or classic sneakers and jeans. I like the nod to the 50’s and JFK. I’d call it Cape Cod casual.
Favorite women’s trend: I like shoulders, so I think that boyfriend blazers are the quintessential piece for accentuating them. Overall though, I’m not really big on the boyfriend look. I don’t think that boyfriend jeans really show off the contours of the body well.
Best fashion advice given to you: To me, it’s always been just keeping your own style. I don’t stick to one fashion vein consistently, because I will go for a different look each day. I feel that it’s important to switch up your style to show your personality.
Your fashion advice for others: Probably to remember that how you convey your attitude and confidence through your fashion choices makes a bigger impression than a lot of people realize. People should keep that in mind.
