Christian Fashion Week Prepares To Produce the Largest International Fashion Show in Tampa Bay for 2014
Thursday, January 16, 2014 •
the weekend before New York Fashion Week, the Christian Fashion Week team will
be kicking of the year with the largest planned fashion event in Tampa Bay of
2014. 17 international designers and over 50 models will be working together to
showcase creative, yet modest fashion lines from around the world during
Christian Fashion Week 2014's two-day finale. In its second year, Christian
Fashion Week begins on Sunday, February 2nd
with the International
Day of Prayer for Art and Fashion, inviting all to pray for the success and
blessing of inspiration over the world's art and fashion community. The week
continues with styling workshops, fashion shopping, and a VIP celebration for
all participants and VIP ticket holders. The final two nights at the Bayanihan
Art and Events Center in Westchase will mark the event's second year with
international designers, several returning designers, an original soundtrack, and
a production laser focused on kicking off a new year of fashion.
"Last year, we
had no way of knowing what type of support Christian Fashion Week would
receive," commented Executive Director, Jose Gomez. "Because of the overwhelming support of an international community of men
and women who are fans of modest fashion, we chose to take the risk on a
week-long event. The results has been an electric, exciting feeling of
anticipation, knowing that the stakes are high because we're holding the
largest planned fashion show of the year in the Tampa Bay area. We believe it's
What is surprising is that the production will be held with
only 55 volunteers, a staff of 6, and the four founders of Christian Fashion
Week - Jose Gomez, Mayra Gomez, Tamy Lugo, and Wil Lugo. Last week, Gomez's blog
article, titled "Bringing Sexy Back: The Place of Sex Appeal and Physical
Attraction in the Christian Life", brought attention to the event,
demonstrating that attendees should not expect a dull religious show.
Co-founder, Tamy Lugo added, "Christian Fashion Week is a not a 'church fashion show'. It's about high
fashion from a perspective of creativity and modesty, exemplified by Christian
values. Expect secular and Christian media, fashion industry professionals, and
fans of fashion at our show. It's everything you will enjoy about New York
Fashion Week - with an extra button and inch of extra fabric."
