Tampa Fashion Week Update

So Tampa Fashion Week has come and gone, and I had a blast! The designs were better than expected and full of unique pieces. Some of the labels included House of Ska by Ivanka Ska, Essence Flowers, Francisco Azucar, Rhonda Shear, Bebe Ziegler, Sam Varela, Darrius Mitchell, Trineice Cagua, Robert Buck, Shante Styles, Aruk Ochrrvani, and Xotica Clothing by Pat McGhee. The student of The International Academy of Design and Technology showcased some of their designs as well. (For full bios and websites for each designer click here.)

Here are some of my favorite designs...
