Cincy Fashion Week - Coming Soon

I’m super excited about how the planning for Cincinnati Fashion Week is coming along.  I’ve been at three planning meetings thus far.  The website ( is looking a MILLION times better, we’re getting the graphics and promo material together (thanks to Steven Broadway for providing the inspiration for some of the graphics), they just hit over 2,000 fans on their Facebook page ( today and everyone that hears about it has the same reaction: “Wow, that’s so cool!  It’s about time!”

The director and founder, Nathan Hurst ( is a really dedicated, competent person, and he is surrounded by a lot of intelligent, creative people on his team as well.  I have no doubt it is going to be a success!

Now for the important part… finding the right mix of designers and shop owners to showcase.  Of course, the focus is to feature local talent, but out of town companies are welcome as well.  Those interested should contact Amy Kirchen at

For the tall, thin, female, fashionistas and guys that make women swoon, we could use your help by modeling.  Those interested should email Derek Bauman at
