Laredo Fashion Week will kick off on Aug. 19 before its Designers Fashion Show is held on Aug. 20.

The fashion show has been a local tradition and will showcase the talent and fashion of models form the Avanti Modeling School and Agency as well 13 international fashion designers.

For the fashion show, there will be three separate shows: the Kids Designers, Ready to Wear Designers and Haute Couture Designers fashion shows.

According to the organizer, 80 local models will be participating as well as 30 local hair and makeup artists during the event.

Each show will host separate designers per category and are separated by time slots. The Kids Designer show will be held from noon to 1 p.m., Ready to Wear from 4-5:30 p.m. and Haute Couture from 7-9 p.m.

The list of designers is as follows:

 Kids Fashion

  • Renee Suarlo Haute Couture – Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
  • Carrousell Kids Fashion – Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

The show has been covered over the years, with local models showing off extravagant gowns and the latest fashion designs from visiting designers. Considered a staple of the Laredo fabric, fashion has continued to grow, and local fashionistas have garnered attention for their own work.

Jude Hinojosa, a student of the Central Saint Martins’ Masters Fashion program in London, has been chosen as one of five students whose work will be featured in Dr. Martens’ “All Access Summer” campaign.

And on the city streets of Laredo, photoshoots have seen partnerships between the Dreamers Photography School and Avanti. According to Avanti Director Laura Cervantes, the photoshoot was a part of a course where the models prepare different outfits and themes of attire based on the concept of rock. The theme lends itself well with the lifestyle of bikers, which is where the collaboration with several motorcycle groups came to be.

Cervantes is the director for both the Laredo and Houston Fashion Week, which has been a boon to modeling and fashion for the border area. As New York has strict prerequisites, local models can showcase visiting international designers’ collections this August for Laredo Fashion Week.
