Delray Beach Fashion Week Celebrates Ten Years
Delray Beach Fashion Week, held annually in Downtown Delray Beach, celebrates and honors all of the local talent we have here in this small, but mighty, beachside community. This year marks the tenth anniversary for this spectacular event that recognizes local designers, boutiques and stylists, and benefits the Achievement Center for Children and Families in Delray Beach. 100% of the ticket proceeds go toward this local charity.
The event is put on every year by the Downtown Development Authority in collaboration with the amazing merchants located throughout downtown.
Fashion Week takes place this year from February 23rd-27th and there will be a lot going on! Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online.
