Fashion weeks now stretch from Austin to Baltimore. Unlike their New York or Milan counterparts, these events forgo couture fashion to highlight up-and-coming local designers. They also put a down-home spin on the traditionally haughty affairs, welcoming more than just socialites and celebrities. (Anyone can get a ticket.) This year, put a little fashionista in your annual girls’ trip—and help support local artisans—with a trek to the fashion tents of the South.
