The closing night of Atlantic Fashion Week is a great opportunity for established designers to showcase their recent collections. With everything from maternity lines to swimsuits, to jewelry (yay Beck and Boosh) and everything in between it was definitely an entertaining show.
The Atlantic Fashion Week Closing Show is always fun, and it was great to see everyone looking amaze in the industry and to see all the local designer’s collections. With so many collections, and so much talent it’s difficult to mention all of them here (I love you all XO). I’ve compiled here are some photos (via Brent McCombs) to just give you a glimpse of some of the action.  You’ll just have to come out next time!

years; trying to find what it is that she really wants to do and decided

From dance performances to protests to folks in drag it was definitely a must see show. I will say though that was unfortunate that the setting wasn’t planned a little better. In an attempt to speed up the show the models
were asked not to complete the catwalk when doing their walk throughs,
and so us media folk and photographers located at the end of the “s”
shaped runway really missed a lot of the show.  In any case there’s
always going to hiccups and learning experiences from these types of events especially so when it’s a new venue.  Ultimately it still was an amazing show, and the local designers really worked hard, and it really showed on the runway!
Great job everyone
