Don’t for one-second believe all the ‘back-woods’ stereotypes. Southerners know their fashion and they have their own distinct style! Don’t believe me? Check out The South magazine or take a look at the number of talented designers that come out of Birmingham and Atlanta. Here in Auburn, local non-profit The Layman Group is running a fashion-focused UICON series and local boutique owners are banding together to offer a fantastic week of fashion (March 1st – 9th)!
Beth Witten, owner of Blue Shoe Boutique, is spear-heading the event along with some help from AuburnLakeMartin.com friend, Julie Bunkley of Invision Events. The event was born out of a desire to expose local community members and University students to the wealth of unique shopping experiences and fashionable small businesses. Fashion Week features a number of local boutiques, restaurants and related vendors. Don’t miss it!
