Fashion and Food take center stage at Oklahoma Fashion Week

A combination of fashion and food made for a memorable second night of Oklahoma Fashion Week. A Fashion Party was held last night at La Brasa in Oklahoma City. Fashion Week supporters enjoyed great food and conversation while a DJ provided music.

James Vu, owner of La Brasa said he was approached by Fashion Week organizers to host the event as his restaurant is currently creating a buzz in the Oklahoma City food scene. La Brasa has been open for six months and has quickly become a local hot spot serving Peruvian cuisine. Though having attended other Fashion Week events in other cities, Vu is happy to be involved with Oklahoma’s for the first time.

Other guests expressed their excitement at the events of the week, with most anticipation pointed at Saturday’s runway shows, something many Oklahomans have never experienced at this magnitude.

Tuesday evening, Margaritas, Models and Manicures Mixer will take place at Polished Nail Salon in Oklahoma City. Guests will get to meet the runway models and mingle with others while enjoying food, cocktails, and giveaways. GOGO Sushi Express and Grill will be catering while Nothing Bundt Cakes will provide sweets. Farfalla Wines of Yukon will also be featured. This free event begins at 5:30 PM. See you there!
