Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week is returning to the Capital City for the third year, with its big night set for Saturday, Feb. 27.
Founded by designer Brandon Campbell, this year’s event features the work and debut spring/fall collections of 17 emerging professional and student designers.
The grand finale of OBRFW III takes place Feb. 27 at the Capitol Park Museum, 660 N. Fouth St., beginning at 7 p.m. Among the designers showcasing their creations are Campbell, whose line is iME, and Baton Rouge designer Samjah Iman Saulsberry, co-designer of Chokolat Crème T-shirts with best friend April Alexander. Host for the evening is NBC33’s Danielle Grossman.
Guests are requested to wear formal attire with pink and light blue in celebration of Pantone’s colors of the year — rose quartz and serenity. Tickets are $50, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Louisiana Museum Foundation for state-funded art galleries, exhibits and educational programs.
The fun kicks off Thursday, Feb. 25, when organizers, designers and models visit the Baton Rouge International School, where they’ll read their favorite children’s books to the students. Later that evening, it’s the For Kids By Kids fashion show at the LSU Museum of Art’s Turner Galley, 100 Lafayette St., in the Shaw Center for the Arts.
The doors open at 7 and the show starts at 8. Admission is $30. Dress code for this event is “your favorite suit or dress.”
