Happy 10-Year, Calzatura!

Calzatura Boutique celebrated its 10-year anniversary last night (4/22) with a wine and cupcake party. Dozens of locals fluttered through the shop between 7 and 10pm to take advantage of the 40 percent-off sale, score yummy snacks and meet three Gainesville Fashion Week celebrities.

The event was a spotlight on local talent. The store used the anniversary party to announce that the store is now stocking three local designers; BobbyK, Sironna Swimwear and Courtney Lee Designs. That means, among others things, that you can now find swimsuits downtown! Now if only somebody would start carrying shoes...

The three designers Bobby Kelley of BobbyK, Sandra Meza of Sironna and Courtney Kline of Courtney Lee Designs were all in attendance, mingling with guests and talking about their lines.We were happy to hear about the big plans the designers have for the future of their lines. A full BobbyK menswear line? Perhaps. Keep an eye out!

With miniature cupcakes from Yum Cupcakery, champagne, wine and 40 percent off the entire store, Calzatura showed it's appreciation to the community that has kept in in business with more than just words.

We are looking forward to seeing what else the boutique has in store for us this coming year. We got buzz of a Calzatura Girl contest the store will soon announce, and plans to make local art installations a monthly feature, rotating among the various talented artists in town.

In case you couldn't make the event, we scored a $25 Calzatura gift card for you. First person to comment or RT this story wins.
