In Downtown Delray Beach, there is a lot of emphasis on supporting local business — and that is totally evident every year during Delray Beach Fashion Week when local designers, boutiques and hair salons are center of everyone’s attention for five days straight.

Delray Beach Fashion Week

From January 24th-28th, Fashion Week attendees will experience firsthand the couture culture that resonates in this cozy, small beach town, and with this year being the 5th anniversary, the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and downtown businesses promise to bring out all the bells and whistles. To celebrate this milestone, a limited amount of Fashion Passion VIP tickets ($165) are available, which includes VIP seating at all four fashion shows, a special anniversary edition Swag Bag (valued at $150) designed by local celebrity designer, Amanda Perna, and admission to the VIP reception. There are still a few VIP tickets available so click here to get ’em while you can!
