Austin Fashion Week Announcement Made My Heart Skip A Beat.

Launch787 announced today that the 2nd Annual Austin Fashion Week will take place August 14-21, 2010!

I’m definitely not going to miss out this year though! Looks like I’m going to have to put off my move to San Francisco until after this happens. This event gives me hope that I’ll be able to be a designer here in Austin, this city that I love so much.

Here’s the info via their website:
