Fashion Week

Deb Peterson of the Post-Dispatch had a brief blurb on Attilio D'Agostino, head of St. Louis Fashion Week (This fall's Fashion Week will take place October 12-19):

D’Agostino...said part of his goal is to help turn the Lou into a destination for the best designers in the world to reach their Midwest customers.

He said he also wants St. Louis to be a place where emerging designers, models, photographers and fashion brands can be launched.
St. Louis has a growing national reputation in the fashion world, thanks to people like D'Agostino, stars like Kimora Lee Simmons, and the talented grads of Wash U.'s highly-regarded school of design.

It's great to hear about St. Louisans who are willing to think big and do their part to put St. Louis on the map.

Way to go, Attilio!
