Runway Rundown: The Women’s Mafia Fashion Show & Fashion Week Kick-Off Event: Spring/Summer 2011

We were thrilled, as ever, with the outpouring of support for the talented the designers who won our “Are You Runway Ready?” Competition and who were featured in our September 9th 2011 Fashion Show at Tela Design Studio. It takes a village to create a hot-ticket, sold-out, take-no-prisoners event like ours, and we couldn’t have done it without our guests and our event and media partners below.

Enjoy the first look photos by Arthur Eisenberg below and see the galleries for additional featured photographer galleries soon.
