The independent fashion designers at Cypress Vanguard invite you to welcome several talented new additions to the locally owned and operated boutique on Sunday, June 26th. Cypress Vanguard was founded in 2010 by Megan Summerville (Texas Next Top Designer 2009) in partnership with Matt Swinney (Launch787, Austin Fashion Week), and was created with the goal of cultivating the spirit of independent art, fashion, and design – all while enabling greater success for small businesses run by passionate people.
During this free event, guests can expect to see models (with makeup by FaceKandy) showing off the work of the in-house designers while mingling both in the gorgeous courtyard and amongst the cozy retail space inside. An ongoing fashion photography shoot will be taking place throughout the day, with the doors opening to the public at 10am. Both existing and new members of Cypress Vanguard will be present to speak with visitors about themselves and their work, and beginning at 2pm we’ll kick it up a notch with introductions and a fun, festive party atmosphere.
Refreshments will be served, including cookies generously provided by Tiff’s Treats and savory sweets by The Pole Dancing Baker. Enjoy the decadent, welcoming environment at the Cypress Vanguard courtyard while being the first to see the updated boutique displays and presentations by the creators.
