The event not to miss this year was the 5th annual FULL TILT Fashion Show. This haute event was far beyond the confines of the runway. Instead, FULL TILT offered a New York inspired presentation full of energy. Guest, fashion media, and paparazzi could walk around the models and capture the couture fashions from every angle. Embracing digital technology, FULL TILT Fashion was a progressive interactive experience that Austin has been waiting for in an art gallery atmosphere with spotlight podiums; allowing the audience to see the fine details of each designers work (360 degree access to each designers work). This is an entirely new way for designers to showcase and market their collections to a large group of consumers, both in and outside the event.
FULL TILT and BLU Party ATX produced by Formula VIP Events (held each year to celebrate F1™ racing in Austin, TX) also collaborated with Austin artist Deborah Argyropoulos (www.dmcart.com), to raise money for Breast Cancer Resource Center (www.bcrc.org)
This year’s show, produced by Kylie Bollwitt, featured 16 designers (Austin designers, Texas designers, and Italian designers): Daniel Esquivel This is Sloane Danny Nguyen Nina Means Midi Soliz Dina Chavez Ross Bennett Sally Daneshjou Becky Hollands Corsetti Imports Abi Ferrin Masha Osiamu Mysterious NPN Gay Isber Evelyn Christianson Sheila Hawkins-Bucklew
