Join Savannah magazine staffers and stylists on our whirlwind tour of the 5th Annual Savannah Fashion Week, April 28-May 3.
Monday, April 28Meet us at 11 a.m. at the corner of Broughton and Barnard streets, where we’ll be cheering on Mayor Edna Jackson as she receives the first-ever Savannah Fashion Advocate Award. Next, we’ll cruise by ZIA at noon for an early peek at Zia Sachedina’s latest jewelry label from Spain. We’ll grab salads at Butterhead Greens on our way south to Twelve Oaks for Heather Burge’s Diane von Furstenberg trunk show at BleuBelle. Like the iconic DVF herself, Heather and her staff always know how to make us look our best. We’ll end the day at Satchel, where the talented Elizabeth Seeger will help us design our own custom leather accessories—from cuffs to koozies.
Tuesday, April 29Today is the day to get ready for fun in the sun, thanks to the L*Space swim collection trunk show at James Gunn in Sandfly and Trunk 13’s Beach Bash, complete with resort wear, beach bags and other summer essentials. After an afternoon with the American Girls at Sara Jane Children’s Boutique, we’ll swing by the Mamie Ruth Studio for a trunk show and accessory bar with boho-chic designer Emily Bargeron. Then we’re off to the Modern Bronze jewelry trunk show at Custard Boutique, where edgy owner Tara Kirkland’s parties are as singular as her store’s selection.

Wednesday, April 30In the eye of the sartorial storm, we’ll prop our feet up and watch the feature film Mademoiselle C, a documentary about French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld—one of fashion’s most influential movers. Time Out New York said, “For fashion junkies, Mademoiselle C is like five September issues of Vogue all rolled into one.” All for just $10 at the door of the Jepson Center for the Arts at 6 p.m.
Thursday, May 1For the first time ever, Savannah’s independent fashion designers are joining Fashion Week retailers for a runway extravaganza in Forsyth Park at 7 p.m. Get the highlights in the March/April issue of Savannah magazine, and get your tickets now before they sell out.
Friday, May 2This year, we’ll be able to shop last night’s runway looks at the Savannah Fashion Week Pop-Up Shop, presented by The B Street District from noon to 7 p.m. at the corner of Broughton and Barnard. A $5 donation at the door will support the Savannah Style Fund, providing scholarships to talented young designers.
Saturday, May 3Trunk-show hop with us from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. as we visit with two local designers at beloved Midtown boutiques. Bridal whiz kid Faith Thornburg will display her collection at the whimsical new wedding design mecca, Ivory and Beau, and Kathryn Grotheer Hayes of Mix Julep will share her spring and summer collections at BleuBelle Boutique.
