Fashion Week Tampa Bay epitomizes the fashion scene in the Bay region with an annual event that celebrates the style that is uniquely Tampa Bay's very own. The event was created by local, young professionals in the Tampa Bay area who are committed to leveraging their skills and talents, while giving back to their communities. Their focus is to showcase the talents of established and emerging designers from Tampa Bay and surrounding areas, while recognizing that an individual’s sense of style is deeply related to other elements, like the way he/she sees the world we live in and his/her contribution to its overall welfare. Each year Fashion Week Tampa Bay will give back to our community by donating a portion of net proceeds to local charities that are committed to the well-being of and service to our world, our children, our health, our future and our dreams. Established in June 2007.
