TRIBEZA Style Week hosted their annual fashion show this Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at FAIR MARKET.  TRIBEZA Fashion Show 2014, produced by HIGH BEAM EVENTS, organized the elaborate event that felt more “Austin” than in years past.  Featuring live music for the models to walk to, THE NIGHTOWLS, were a breath of fresh air that offered an atypical fashion show experience.  The runway looks were selected by Fashion Stylist, Sara Oswalt from local boutiques which streamlined the vision and created a cohesiveness.  TRIBEZA explored this new concept with Sara; and with success, this year’s runway resembled collection work for the first time.

  • Working in small sections, saturate the hair with SACHAJUAN Hair Mousse and blow dry using a large round brush.
