You know how the saying goes, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." When it comes to fashion, that simply isn't the case. Las Vegas' fashion scene is as vibrant as its nightlife. It's the ideal setting for old school glamour and hipster chic. Designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, and Michael Kors all have boutiques here, making Las Vegas a top shopping destination.

Each year, Las Vegas plays host to a number of fashion shows. If you are fashion junkie who lives in the Las Vegas area, you may want to check out these shows:

CURVExpo - This show is held bi-annually in New York and Las Vegas and is the only high-end lingerie, men's underwear and swimwear show in North America. The 2009 expo was held from Aug. 31 to Sept. 2 at the Venetian hotel. Spring / Summer 2010 collections of more than 250 international brands were on display.

MAGIC - Started in 1933, MAGIC stands for the Men's Apparel Guild in California. This annual tradeshow was held in Los Angeles until 1989. The organization moved the show to Las Vegas because it needed more space. MAGIC has become the largest, most comprehensive men's apparel and accessory trade event in the U.S. The 2009 show was held Aug. 31 to Sept. 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Las Vegas Fashion Week - Fashion Week 2009 was held in Vegas Sept. 3 to Sept. 5. This is the city's first Fashion Week. There were fashion shows and an accessories designers' trunk show. The Fashion Week events took place at the Green Valley Ranch.

PROJECT - This tradeshow was launched in July 2003 by Sam Ben-Avraham. Ben-Avraham is the owner of the Atrium boutique in Manhattan. PROJECT is held bi-annually in New York and Las Vegas and features "the most influential and directional advanced contemporary brands in the marketplace today." The 2009 show was held Sept. 1 to Sept. 3 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
