Bon Vivant LLC, Nichole Wright, in Austin, Texas & Jessica Rae Anderson, Lifestyle Stylist, who is based in Miami, Florida, decided to host the â€œFashion in Flightâ€ for many reasons. Both women spent over ten years in New York City most recently and wanted to bring the excitement of a â€œtrue runwayâ€ Fashion Week to Austin and both have adopted dogs in the last year. â€œWe really wanted to host a unique event that nurtures the design and fashion industry, gives participating brands international PR reach and supports an animal charity.”
