Wow, what an experience! At King and Rose we believe in showcasing our eyeglass and sunglass collections at the highest level and the runway is the perfect stage! We teamed up with the crew from Fashion X to highlight some of our favorite pieces during Austin Fashion Week.
It all started with a soiree at our flagship store! We invited our neighbors and eyewear lovers to take in some good music and get the party started. Then we collaborated with custom suit designer Ross Bennett on some looks for his rooftop showing in downtown Austin. It included a special appearance by hip-hop artist Droid. He came out wearing an amazing white gold pair of Ahlem sunglasses. Photo credit: Jared Tennant @jaredten
Then to the gallery showing at the newly built JW Marriott hotel. We set up a beautiful booth showcasing exclusive hand-picked styles for three nights complete with rose crowns and plenty of photo-ops!

We had an amazing time meeting all the fashion trend-setters in Austin and welcoming them into our world of handmade eyewear. The only thing better was styling runway models for the show itself. Check out our upcoming blog post to see the designers and looks we collaborated on!
