Style Week 2015

When TRIBEZA Style Week launched in 2003, it was intentionally named Style Week, rather than Fashion Week, because the hope was to celebrate more than just fashion. So this year, we returned to its roots and created an exciting line up of events about art, design, food…and of course a lot of fashion, too. We found the perfect partner to collaborate with as our presenting sponsor in Katie Kime. The Duke University grad and up-and-coming design star opens her first storefront this month here in Austin. Her offerings include whimsical and stylish home accessories, furniture, clothes and more. Join us this month for a Style Week No. 12 and a lineup of events like never before.



September 24th | 7:30pm | Fair Market | 1100 E. Fifth St.

Between the dynamic group of interior designers and makers who call Austin home and the exciting furniture shops and showrooms opening, our creative community is in the midst of a renaissance. So we decided to kick off this year’s Style Week with an event celebrating Austin design. We invited top interior designers Mark Ashby, Fern Santini, Joel Mozersky, Tracey Overbeck Stead and Style Week’s presenting sponsor Katie Kime to create stunning tablescapes that will be paired with the culinary stylings of top chefs for an inventive 100 person dinner party. Together, each chef/designer pair will create completely unique experiences under one roof. Mark Ashby will be collaborating on a table with Larry McGuire of Jeffrey’s; Fern Santini will work with Murph Willcott of Texas French Bread; Joel Mozersky with Rene Ortiz of Launderette; Tracey Overbeck Stead with Sterling Ridings of Uchiko; and Katie Kime with James Robert of Fixe.

Floral designers David Kurio, Posey Events and Transplants Floral will be creating special installations for each table. Before dinner begins, attendees can enjoy a special display from Jaguar Land Rover Austin, and take in an installation created by the talented architect and Dick Clark Architecture alum, Matt Garcia of Matt Garcia Design. Guests will enjoy wine pairings by The Austin Winery and cocktails served from Katie Kime-designed bar carts by bartenders clad in the latest fall looks from By George. Tickets to this one of a kind event are $150 and include the special chefs’ dinner, and drinks courtesy of Shiner, Deep Eddy Vodka and Cointreau.

Outside, guests can enjoy a special display from Jaguar Land Rover Austin before heading inside to Preacher.
