Every good style show ends with a great finale. On Aug. 11, the first Style Week Pittsburgh (SWP) ended with a fashion show dedicated to the fashionable male, themed Pinstripes and Cuffs.

The show was held at the Savoy Restaurant and Lounge. Their finale event featured a cigar bar on the patio by Puffs–n-Stuff (Station Square), exclusive barbering and male grooming products from The Art of Shaving (Ross Park Mall), Raise Your Spirits cocktails, styling consultations from J. Hilburn, and a great opportunity to reflect on a fashion forward week of events. Diva Chef Elise Wims served as the emcee. A quartet of male models walked in handsome suits, hats and casual wear.

Presented by Style & Steel, SWP debuted in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Aug. 7 through Sunday, Aug. 11 with five days of fashion focused events. The goal of the inaugural event was to provide Pittsburgh a springboard into the national and international circle of high fashion as well as providing a five-star celebration of beauty in some of the city’s premier venues. The five day event was a great opportunity to get glam and enjoy the Pittsburgh nightlife.
