With that in mind, The Independent has taken on a project to recognize the most stylish among us, putting top fashionistas right up there with all things great about our community.

Give us a few words about your nominee, including what you admire most about their personal style. Send along their contact info, too.

We’ll celebrate these men and women on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the first-ever IND Style Awards and Big Hair Ball at the Acadiana Center for the Arts. Along with recognizing them, we promise a runway show of the city’s top retailers and hair salons that will reflect the professional commitment they have to bringing the best looks to the city.
