Showcasing Friday, October 4th

Arguably the most coveted night of GSOFW, the “Emerging Designer” night will display the artistic talents of some of the most talented up-and-coming designers in the world. (That’s right, past shows have included designers from as far away as Los Angeles, NYC, and Buenos Aries, Argentina). 


It’s recommend to arrive early so you can enjoy pre-show mingling and professional red carpet photos. After parking, enjoy the automotive eye candy on display from Jaguar Land Rover of Greensboro – or better yet – be sure to get your photo taken in the driver seat of your favorite car! Then, strut the Elizabella’s Bridal and Boutique Red Carpet (VIP guests will enjoy a glass of complimentary champagne presented from EyeSalons while they do so).

After getting your photo by the Greensboro Fashion Week Press, models will escort you to the reception and cocktail area. VIP guests will go pass the red carpet to our private lounge equipped with its own Fainting Goat cocktail bar, pre-show model presentation, and more.

All guests will enjoy a curated cash bar by the Fainting Goat Spirits, light food, “pop-up” shops by GSOFW fashion vendors, and comfortable lounge seating. VIP guests will be escorted to their front row (assigned) seats and luxury bags, around 8:45. Showtime starts around 9pm. 

The show is expected to be over around 11pm, but the party won’t stop there. All of our GSOFW guests are invited to attend The Havana Phil’s After Party on the second floor lounge or outside patio at Cafe Europa. There will be music and more cocktails from The Fainting Goat Spirits. The after-party will continue until 2am.
