For the first time, Austin Fashion Week will hold an avant-garde hair and makeup competition during the after party where teams will create a contemporary French inspired look and guests will vote for a winner that will be announced at the Austin Fashion Awards.
After a week of dozens of runway shows, fashion parties and presentations, including the Showcase Events at local retailers, salons and spas and Runways & Marketplace at La Zona Rosa, Austin Fashion Week will once again close out with the ultra glam Austin Fashion Awards on Saturday, May 11th at the iconic Austin Music Hall.

Never before seen complete collections from designers Gail Chovan for Blackmail, Stephen Moser, Kendra Scott, and Dawn Younger-Smith for Boudoir Queen along with looks by local Mash-Up Teams will walk the custom runway.
Hair by Jackson Ruiz and make up by Mandy Hernandez complete the looks. In addition to the shows, see which lucky few will receive the prized Golden Boot Award, presented to this year’s Rising Stars, Trailblazers, and Mash-Up Teams.
Following the awards presentations, all guests are invited to stay and enjoy the After Party!
