COUTURE IS PART OF OUR CULTURE IN DOWNTOWN DELRAY, AND THIS IS NEVER MORE TRUE THAN DURING FASHION WEEK, WHEN THE CITY COMES ALIVE WITH STYLE, JANUARY 25-29, 2017!
Celebrate spectacular fashion, local designers, art and beauty at the 4th annual Delray Beach Fashion Week created by the Downtown Development Authority and the Downtown merchants.

“We are thrilled to be hosting this award winning and special event again this year, “ said Laura Simon, Executive Director, DDA. Delray Beach Fashion Week is a unique, fun and all-encompassing opportunity to share with our local residents and visitors the fashion and beauty that is found right here in Downtown Delray Beach.”
A highlight of Delray Beach Fashion Week is “Delray on the Runway.” The January 26th event at Il Bacio invites guests to dress for a “white party,” and includes a runway show, reception, and silent auction.
