June of 2012 was a bad month for Utahns. A poll came out stating that Utah was the second worst dressed state in America. Second worst. Did anyone else just feel a stinging pain in their heart?
Growing up in Utah, I always heard about our lack of fashion. And hey, I admit, I probably looked silly as I walked into school with twelve chains around my neck and brown jeans, but Arby’s always taught me that different is good – right?
The Beehive State may not be known for its fashion forward risks, but we here at Fashion Utah think you’d be surprised to see what the state has to offer. For example, did you know we have two H&M’s, Tiffany & C0, Michael Kors, Bettie Page and Kiehl’s?
If that doesn’t convince you that Utah is moving into the fashion age, check out Lime Ricki swimwear, which is based in Utah (even if most of their suits are bought by out-of-staters). We have great fashion stylists to help mom’s look skinnier, teach you fashion DIYs and even how to dress for Cochella (if you ever make it to the coast). Now throw in some NAHA winners, some amazing model scouts and emerging designers and soon you’ll see that the fashion world is starting to break seams.

Fall fashion is the perfect time to explore our terrain. August is full of mall fashion shows, but September will really kick the season up a notch. Keep your eye out for shows like RAW, Art Meets Fashion and Fashion Night Out.
So whether you live in Utah or are planning a vacation, pencil in a few hours to visit some local shopping treasures. And if you don’t know where to start, Fashion Utah has lists by regions and is currently highlighting the best places to find fall trends.
We hope to see you soon – after all, we need you fashionistas to show the world that Utah is all its cracked up to be! So check out our page for more information on all of Utah’s fall fashion events.
