Hosting my first event with the Baton Rouge Fashion Council!

Since founding my blog in 2010, one of the things I’ve been most passionate about is the growing Louisiana fashion industry. Over the years, I’ve loved discovering local brands and boutiques through my blog and social media. More importantly, I’ve loved getting to tell you guys about my new favorite local discoveries.

I’ve had so many friends and readers tell me that they wouldn’t have known about certain designers or shops if it wouldn’t have been for my blog. When I began thinking of new ways to connect readers and the community to local businesses, I decided to start the Baton Rouge Fashion Council, and it’s already been quite the journey so far!

After months of back and forth of what I wanted the Fashion Council’s main mission and purpose to be, I finally launched it with the help of a few others in April.

The Baton Rouge Fashion Council is an organization for local designers and boutiques to network and collaborate together through pop-up shops, social events, and runway shows.

After gaining our first initial members we hosted our first pop-up shop in mid-May at Tin Roof Brewing Co., which just happened to coincide with Craft Beer Week. We got to shop spring and summer styles from six local vendors while sipping our favorite craft beers.

Despite the rainy weather, we were pleased with our turnout for our first pop-up shop, and we’re already planning a few others for the summer. I didn’t realize how nervous I would be hosting my first event! Even with little sleep that week, I always felt like I was forgetting to do something, so it was nice to get our first event behind us. Now I know what to do and what not to do moving forward. Either way it will be a great learning experience and I can’t wait to see how the Fashion Council grows!

What I’ll be wearing to Bayou Country Superfest

Outfit: Bayou Country Superfest tank c/o Southern Football Tees | Denim shorts – Target |
Laredo cowboy boots c/o Country Outfitters

In Louisiana we have a festival to celebrate everything — crawfish, cotton, watermelon, sugarcane — you name it! We love any reason to throw a party.

And this weekend one of my favorite festivals is coming up! It’s Bayou Country Superfest weekend when country music takes over Tiger Stadium and we combine festival attire with cowboy boots (even in the 100 degree weather).

I’ll only be going one night this year to see my girl Taylor Swift and to belt out every lyric of every song, of course! But I couldn’t be more excited! If you ever get the chance to come down for BCSF, you should make it happen.

I also love my new Louisiana festivals tank from Southern Football Tees. It’s lightweight and should keep me cool this weekend. SFT is a local company that specializes in southern T-shirts and tanks. I’m a huge fan of their ‘Sweet Baton Rouge’ apparel and the state pride tees. If you’re local to Louisiana or the South, then you’ll definitely find something!

Will you be coming to BCSF this weekend? What festivals are your favorite?

Keep up with with SF on FacebookTwitterInstagram & Pinterest!
