BIRMINGHAM FASHION WEEK
BFW was founded on the ideals of bringing unity to our community through fashion. Local and national designers, alongside local and national boutiques, will gather together to promote and inspire our rising stars. Models, make-up and hair stylists will showcase their talents on the runway, while encouraging locals and visitors to explore the creative talents of Birmingham.
Gus Mayer hosted the Official Kick-Off Party for Birmingham Fashion Week 2012 which benefitted the non-profit organization Alabama Forever.
