We’re LAAFFing with you
What better place to scope out local fashion (not to mention costumes) than at Asheville’s most local of festivals? On a recent Sunday, Lexington Avenue filled with brightly dressed revelers, vendors and performers, all showing off their unique personal styles. And, better yet, many of those pictured below purchased wardrobe pieces from area stores and artists.
