The annual Mercedes-Benz Buffalo Fashion Week came to existence over three years ago, and after months upon months of preparation and long awaited anticipation, the 2012 show begins today. If you have attended the Buffalo State College's Runway or the well-esteemed Mass Appeal fashion show, you've experienced the exhilaration of inspirational innovation. Whether you stood in the back, sat in the press box, or meandered the VIP room, you've experienced that rush when women and men travel the runway paced by the music that mirrors the designs. The Queen City uses it's thriving culture in fashion and the arts to display such, in the most effervescent way.
There are six scheduled events occurring this week. Ticket prices range from free to pricey, and a couple events fall right in between. I'll be doing coverage at most of the events so check back for reviews and a slideshow of photos.
The show kicks off today with a high fashion photo shoot in Niagara Square which ends at 2:30 pm and the main runway event at the breathtaking Statler Towers is next Thursday. The schedule for events is below or can be found on their website.
