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. This year's events will include runway shows from established and emerging designers, an exhibitor boutique, cocktail soiree and after-parties.

“We're excited to host another year of fashion in Tampa Bay with a focus on giving. It has been challenging this year, but the giving spirit is alive and well in Tampa Bay, plus our area loves fashion,” said Charlene McPherson, associate producer and sponsorship director for the Tampa Bay Fashion Week event.

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.

Tampa Bay Fashion Week will open with a cocktail soiree on Wednesday, Sept. 23, followed by runway shows on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 24 and 25 from: Adjanys Marrero, Audrey “Pat” McGhee, Bebe Ziegler, Ben Chmura, Essence Flowers, Helen Gerro, Ivanka Ska, Michael Della Penna, Nina Verklas, Rhonda Shear, Sana Hassan, Sandra C. 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.
