Calling all the Bay Area fashionistas! Come socialize in the most fashionable crowd with actual Project Runways stars! I went to Benicia’s Fashion Weekend last year and it was seriously the best way to meet and network not just with Project Runway alum, but other fashion gals and guys in the area.

Benicia, Calif. (August 20, 2015) An ensemble of six designers from the Lifetime series “Project Runway” will be presenting their ready to wear collections on the catwalk during Benicia’s Fashion Runway Weekend, held September 25 and 26.Attendees will get the chance to sip wine and mingle with celebrity designers at one of the most talked about fashion events in the Bay Area. This year’s designers include: Richard Hallmarq, Melissa Fleis, Bert Keeter, Stanley Hudson, Ari South, and Emily Payne.
