Eyewear trends for spring/summer 2012 will be about style, dynamics, innovation and luxury because sunglasses are a great way to show off your fashion taste so choosing the right look is important.

Mass Appeal: An Elmwood Village Fashion Event

Mass Appeal: An Elmwood Village Fashion Event

The fourth annual Mass Appeal: An Elmwood Village Fashion Event once again promises to be the area’s hottest ticket for both local fashionistas and lovers of creativity. Scheduled for Friday, November 18 in the magnificent Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church, this year’s theme, Transforming a Community, plays upon ideals of “refined” femininity and the “wild” brute. Our featured designers will use a profusion of color and texture to create a sense of depth and movement on the runway, contributing a sense of drama to each couture piece.

From the simplest t-shirts to “conceptual” fashion, Mass Appeal, presented by Palladian Health, focuses on local designers, artists and ready-to-wear clothing only seen on the streets of – and available in the boutiques and shops of – Buffalo’s beloved Elmwood Village.
