Style mavens from every walk gathered at Acadiana Center for the Arts for the most diverse art of them all — fashion. It’s been called “art that you wear” by the fictional editors of Devil Wears Prada and we couldn’t agree more after the 2016 INDStyle Awards and Runway Show. Nine local honorees rocked the runway wearing their own unique threads before seven local retailers brought the season’s latest looks coupled with seven local salons that brought conceptual hair and beauty creations we won’t soon forget. It was an evening about more than clothing. It was a gathering that honored the relentlessly local love Acadiana has for style that’s both a reflection of national trends and quite homegrown. It’s a combination that can be found in the closets of our honorees and hanging on the racks of our favorite stores.
