The runway retailer for the evening was the Birmingham Fashion Truck . It is exactly what it sounds like! Birmingham has fashion on wheels and they made a stop at BFW! Here is a little bio on the company below :
Most young women have one problem in common…shopping. I discovered my problem at an early age and decided there was only one way to overcome it – shop for a living! That is what led me to study apparel merchandising in college and become a buyer for a corporate retail chain, and yes, I spend money to make money. As I grew in the retail business, I became more and more convinced that I must have a business of my own, but was at a loss about how to be original in a shopping culture saturated with retail options. That was until I discovered the fashion trucks in sunny California. I immediately knew I had to have one! Here was a fresh, new spin on the brick and mortar boutique that I knew the people of Birmingham and beyond would find refreshing. – Evelyn of BFT
I honestly had no clue that their fashions were so trendy and relate-able to the everyday woman . I am now a fan ! Day one is in the books and I look forward to the rest of BFW has to bring us.
