    Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams and R. Kelly are getting fashionable.

    They are both confirmed to appear at the Fashion Meets Music Festival (FMMF), along with O.A.R., Rusko, Paper Diamond, and Destructo, as well as additional After Party acts including Future Islands, The Menzingers, and Maps & Atlases.

    The inaugural festival will be taking place over Labor Day Weekend --Friday, August 29 through Sunday, August 31-- in Columbus, Ohio's Arena District.

    Michelle Williams will MC FMMF's Gala held on Thursday, August 28 at The Bluestone, where O.A.R. will take stage and Alexis Eggleston will debut her couture line.

    The gala will kick off the festival's new program, the Fusion Foundation, and their efforts in helping emerging artists and designers. For more information on the Fusion Foundation, please visit fmmf.us.

    FMMF will offer Runway Shows featuring Koalacore, Lubna Designs, and the International partner of Fashion Meets Music UKwho will be brining on designers such as Lyrics4Lyrics, Ricalyce, Luv Dog, and Jodi B. NY Model Management will host a male and female model search competition, with tryouts on both Friday and Saturday. The winner of the competition will be announced during the festival on Sunday.

    Throughout the weekend in the Marketplace, the Lexus Runway Stage will be home to panels and spotlights featuring both designers and artists discussing both the music and fashion industries.

    The three-day festival, which has been confirmed for a second year in 2015, fuses music and fashion together to create one entertainment platform. FMMF's seven indoor and outdoor stages are set to house over 200 musical acts, and the Columbus Convention Center will be fully transformed into a fashion and music retail marketplace - with expo booths and a dedicated runway installed to showcase the latest from today's established and emerging designers.

    Anyone out in Ohio plan to get their FMMF on? Anyone traveling? We're thinking of going!
