We love following local fashion designers and tastemakers. It combines a life-long passion for couture with our dedication to supporting local culture and small business. Plus, in recent years, Baltimore has only grown as a hotspot where young creative geniuses can start a life and make their visions thrive. So thank goodness someone had the bright idea a few years ago to start up Fashion Awards MD—an award night that highlights, celebrates and recognizes the talents of those who have made contributions to the fashion industry in the state of Maryland and beyond. This year will be the third of its kind; last year’s events both sold out (of course), so take it from us: if local fashion is your thing, get those tickets today.
