Austin Fashion Week 2011 is upon us! Saturday’s “Style, Speed and Glory” Kickoff event was a playful mash up of pretty models and tough motorcycles. Present by Lincoln and held at the Cowboy Harley Davidson Showroom, guests were treated to a visual feast courtesy of Betsey Johnson and MotorClothes by Harley-Davidson. Unapologetic, fearless and iconic sums up these two American brands, often consumed by those who have a streak of rebel in them and embrace freedom of self-expression to the fullest.
In furtherance of the spirit of collaboration, Wilhelmina Brown models sported looks by Mash Up Teams, mega-glam squads consisting of talented photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists and designers a girl could only dream of. Vote for your favorite Mash Up here. Winners will be announced at the Austin Fashion Awards at ACL LIVE on 8/27.
Some events, like the Kickoff Party, require a ticket, but there are plenty of FREE events going on throughout the week. For the scoop on where to see and be seen, check out the full Fashion Week schedule here.
