Haute Accessories Week went out with a bang once again! This year's Runway Show was definitely in a class by itself and I loved every minute of it. I love that the show's audience grows bigger every year. I love the newly added addition of involving fashion lovers in Haute Accessories Week
by allowing people the chance to vote for which designer would close out the Runway Show. You have to do things to keep your audience yearning for more, and The Fashion Movement
did just that with added some new elements this year that were noticeable.

On Friday night, The Fashion Movement showcased an intimate array of designers dedicated to accessory design
. I had the opportunity to speak to a few of the designers after the runway show and what I loved hearing from them the most is that their designs are not cookie cutter and you are guaranteed to walk away with a one of a kind piece. For me that is definitely a plus because who doesn't want to be able to say they are rocking a one-of-a-kind
design. By definition a fashion accessory is said to be an item used to contribute in a secondary
manner to the wearer's outfit. I believe the pieces in this show provoke an update to that definition
. Here is a sneak peek of some of their displayed designs before the show began.
The unity in the Tampa Fashion Community is fantastic. The Fashion Movement managed to combine the Fashionable efforts of The Christian Fashion Week founders, including Mayra Gomez who was the event host, a dynamic group of Fashion Bloggers, glam squad, event photographers and of course the adorable, lovely and handsome models.

At the end of the show, The Fashion Movement's own Lacey B. Smith
received a well deserved standing ovation
for the Haute Accessories Runway Show. In his speech, he made sure to acknowledge all those who are involved in making the show the success that it was. One of my favorite parts was when Lacey made sure to explain how essential for the Tampa Fashion community to work together as it is beneficial for growth. I also love that he gave props to Fashion Bloggers and their influence in the Fashion World.
