The 2nd Street District came alive on Saturday night when each downtown botique paired up with an Austin Fashion Week showcase designer to create an evening of party hopping for avid Austin shoppers, including discounts, beauty treatments and more than a fair share of eye-candy. 

DJ Johnny Bravvo provided the soundtrack for the evening at Estilo, which teamed up with local jewelry designer Rene Guest to celebrate AFW. 

Designer Priscilla Barroso was on hand at Etcetera, Etc. to style girls in her debut clothing line, Crowned Bird. 

Barroso created a playful, colorful atmosphere with rock candy, an array of homemade confections, paper crowns and a photobooth. 

At Plain Ivey Jane, guests sipped on Deep Eddy Vodka while watching a live lash extension demo by Dolce Blue Eyelash Studio.

Eliza Page drew in an early crowd that tried on the tasteful, hand crafted jewelry the store is now famous for. 

Always carried at Plain Ivey Jane, Briolette Jewelry is displayed in adorable corked glass jars with labels that grow when planted. 

Gallery D drew a mixed crowd of party hoppers and celebrated its newest collaboration, vintage by JACKNBOOTS!, and music thanks to DJ Manolo Black. 

The spacious Langford Market was abuzz with shoppers perusing the one-night-only shopping discounts. 

Hemline presented an evening of southern hopsitality spotlihgting women's apparel designer Amber Perley of Pearl Southern Couture and Jewlery designer Danielle Holschuh of Swoon Gems.

Towards the end of the night, guests filtered into Teddies for Bettys' 50 Shades of Grey party, where they were witness to a playful flogging and eccentric lingerie.

Night owls closed out the evening at this invite-only, sexually fueled party with plenty of visuals to last all Fashion Week long.
