The sophomore year of Tampa Bay Fashion Week, Sept. 23-26, will bring designers, models, press, buyers and fashion fans together to experience the Spring/Summer 2010 collections.

Net proceeds from this year's event will benefit Best Buddies Tampa and the YWCA of Tampa Bay. “Fashion Week Tampa Bay is a fun event that provides great exposure to our beneficiaries and helps us to reach a creative, diverse crowd,” said Sarah Combs, area director of Best Buddies Tampa and associate producer for the Tampa Bay Fashion Week event.

Hagen, Triniece Cagua, Troy Anthony and a special student showcase by the International Academy of Design & Technology. Events and activities will be held at the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk (200 N. Ashley Dr., Tampa, Fla. 33602), Sept.23-25, and the event will end with a private/invite only fashion party at an undisclosed location on Saturday, Sept. 26.
