TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The organizers of Christian Fashion Week have a message: modest does not equal frumpy.
“A lot of the designers we talked with looked at the challenge as a creative challenge,” said Jose Gomez, who, along with his wife and another couple, is organizing the event. “How do we push the boundaries — with boundaries?”
The couple’s first-ever Christian Fashion Week begins Friday with a VIP reception and then a runway show on Saturday in Tampa. They’ve pegging the dates to the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York and hopes that the two-day event — it’s not really a week-long show — will evolve into something bigger over time.
