First-ever events scare me. I guess since I’ve been running Cincy Chic for the past 8.5 years and most of our event concepts repeat each month, it’s rare when we decide to change out a concept and try something new. But we wanted to do our version of a Mercedes Benz Fashion Week right here in Greater Cincinnati (technically NKY) and work with lots of local designers.
Typically we work with ONE fashion designer… and this was working with five. It was a huge undertaking, and yes, pulling together the logistics of this terrified me because I wanted it to go flawlessly. And I’m proud to say that… IT DID!
We had HUNDREDS show up, we collected TONS of business suits for Dress for Success, and we had three incredible shows featuring five different local designers. I’m so proud of my team, so grateful to our sponsors, and so happy that our attendees came out in droves to support the cause, our event and our designers.
Needless to say, this concept is a DEFINITE must-repeat event! Hope to see you at next year’s Cincinnati Fashion Night!
Thanks again to all our sponsors…ESPECIALLY our beautiful venue sponsor, Mercedes Benz of Ft. Mitchell!!
