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.

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.
