Pittsburgh Fashion Week 2011 Designer's Preview Show

May is always a busy month for back to back Fashion Shows either for charity, fundraisers or just annual Spring shows...but are we ready for Pittsburgh Fashion Week 2011???

Miyoshi Anderson Executive Director & Founder of Pittsburgh Fashion Week gave designers, reatailers, models and students of the Pittsburgh Art Institute a preview of what we'll see in some of the back to back runway shows for the last two days of PFW 2011.

Designers and Retailers from all over the city and surrounding areas also got the opportunity to sign up to have their designs featured in one of the every hour on the hour runway shows as well as vendor opportunities in the Fashion Avenue Market Place.

A few of the designers featured a sample of their designs tonight at the largest and most exciting Designer & Retailers Meeting ever!

One designer featured his custom jewelry line for men & women...

Another featured his Baby Doll, Color Blocking & Solid Gold designs that were recently shown at the annual Willie Gee's "Beyond the Stars" Fashion Show several weeks ago...

Another featured her sheek & floral designs that were recently shown at the Glam for the Cure event last month...

This designer is a student at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where this meeting was held and her designs are inspired by music and nature!

And this next Brazilian designer who is currently at Fashion Week in Brazil has had her floral flowing designs featured in Pittsburgh Fashion Week 2010 and as recent as this past weekend at the Couture Violette Fashion Show "Passionate About Purple" fundraiser for Gwen's Girls.
