Gainesville Fashion Gets Personal

Gainesville Fashion Week and Covetedlist.com hosted their first Personal StyleFashion Showcase yesterday, March 23, at 7pm in the University of Florida's Reitz Union Grand Ballroom as part of Women's History Month. Featuring 25 spring looks in fresh gradients of pinks and aqua greens, the show was both Gainesville Fashion Week and Covetedlist’s first to be hosted at the UF campus.

About 125 people came out to the event, and there were a lot of new faces in the crowd, says Flavia Cervantes, assistant producer and model coordinator for GFW. “Gainesville Fashion Week is trying hard to reach out to students this year,” she says. They wanted the event to be “eye-opening” to girls and “open up regular girls on the UF campus to see what fashion is,” Flavia says.

DJs Thomas and Ernie spun music throughout the free event. The models showed off a variety of looks featuring clothing from Dahlia Boutique, Wolfgang Boutique, Mesh Boutique and designer BobbyK. Flavia says the looks were “springy and feminine” with a lot of separates, spring dresses, skirts and tops. The fashion show had looks for all body types and gave viewers a first taste of the designers that will be featured at GFW, April 7-11. "The show showed how girls can experiment with their personal style and see what Gainesville has to offer,” Flavia says. “Fashion is a lifestyle here.”
