BurdaStyle and Etsy present D.I.Y. Fashion Show @ Venue 222 South by Southwest 2011 from Magic Spoon Productions on Vimeo.

Last week we packed our bags and headed to Austin, Texas! While taking in our fair share of technological innovations, new music and fantastic street vendor grub, we helped sponsor a DIY fashion show with some seriously talented designers from around the country. Held at Etsy’s Awesome in Austin space, the show highlighted 15 designers and their handmade creations in front of a huge audience of fashion fans, bloggers, BurdaStyle and Etsy members and tons of SXSW attendees. See photos from the show after the jump!
