StyleWeek 2017

Just three months and counting until the fifth annual Style Week Pittsburgh brings fashion-focused events to venues across the city. Fashionistas (and quite a few fashionistos!) got a sneak peek of what to expect Aug. 17-20 at a preview party Wednesday evening at the Ace Hotel Pittsburgh in East Liberty.

The theme for the week will be Style Meets Innovation and will spotlight local designers, musicians and artisans who incorporate technology into their work. 

Style Week's founder/director Wadria Taylor gave an overview of the week's events:

AUG. 17Metamorphosis fashion show with Pittsburgh-based designers

AUG. 18: The annual Style Awards recognizing influencers in style and the arts

AUG. 19Fashion's Night Out, a nightlife experience that will bring together local bands, DJs and fashion

AUG. 20: A networking brunch with local innovators

Leading up to the events, designers, illustrators and graphic artists are invited to submit their designs for this year's official Style Week Pittsburgh T-shirt. Models can get in on the action, too, by attending an open call from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. June 17. (Location to be announced.)
