DESTIN, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2013) - In the fashion world, New York, London and Paris are the biggest spots on the map, but cities around the globe are proving that style and talent can be found in unexpected places. The beaches of South Walton will host its inaugural South Walton Fashion Week, and the Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard is proud to be the "Official Lodging Sponsor" of the 3-day fashion event.
Held for the first time in the Town Center of Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, a short stroll from this Destin, Florida beach hotel, South Walton Fashion Week "celebrates high fashion," highlighting the work and talent of rising regional designers and models in "An Emerging Designer Competition." Additional Events will include trunk shows at chic local boutiques, runway shows, VIP parties and thrilling "Shop the Block" experience.
While fashion is certainly the focus, it isn't the only goal. South Walton Fashion Week aims to raise money for the Arts in Education Program of the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County; establish the area as an arts, culture and fashion destination; and increase tourism to the area and its Destin, FL attractions.
As the "Official Lodging Sponsor" of the event, the Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard is offering a fabulous package with special rates of guest rooms and exclusive pricing on South Walton Fashion Week event tickets. Guests will also enjoy being steps away from all the action, including top shopping and dining in Destin, at the event's home in the Town Center of Grand Boulevard at Sandestin. After a full day of shows, shopping and schmoozing, guests of the Courtyard Sandestin can simply stroll back to the hotel, where a comfortable room with a plush bed awaits. Those still energized from the day's events are invited to relax in the lobby, where lounge-like seating is the perfect place to connect with friends, grab a Starbucks beverage or try one of the South Walton Fashion Week signature drinks at The Bistro, and complimentary Wi-Fi makes it easy to upload fabulous photos from the day's activities.
