Our fifth annual Wearable Art Fashion Show was a HUGE success! We had more than 225 attendees come out to support our charity — The Arts Alliance (we raised about $1k for them at the event!) — and see Atelier‘s first runway show since opening their shop in Madeira this June!
I wasn’t able to make the show because the doc says Baby Scalia is showing signs of coming any time now… and, as much as I’m sure she’ll love fashion, I didn’t want to have her AT the fashion show!:)
So….luckily, my sister in law Melissa Scalia, who runs The Style Eye site, came through for me in a clutch and filled in for me as emcee and sent me pics to make me feel like I was there!
I loved all the fashions from the boutique and AMAZING jewelry designed by Arlene Aranzamendez, owner of Atelier and a long-time jewelry designer. Such big, beautiful statement pieces …truly “wearable art”!! And the hair/makeup was phenomenal too! Big shout out to Coco Creative Wellness for their awesome work!
Check out some snapshots from the show below! We’ll post the professional ones — and the hilarious photo booth pics!! — to Cincy Chic’s site shortly!
WOW WOW WOW! Those are the only words (well, technically, it’s just one word) that I can think of to describe Friday’s LBD fashion show! Not only did we have a record crowd of 350 attendees and record sponsorship support (more than 20 awesome sponsors!)… but we also put together our best LBD fashion show yet!
See, the idea for this event came up four years ago when Summerfair reached out to me about how they can reach a fresh, new demographic. I got to thinking that I love all the jewelry artisans who come from all over the U.S. to exhibit at this show… and what better way to showcase a great accessory than on a classic LBD.
So, I suggested that we do a fashion show where we work with local designers and boutiques to have a fashion show full of fun LBDs, and then accessorize them with Summerfair artisan creations, like jewelry, handbags, scarves and hats. They loved the idea, and we’ve been doing this fashion show every year for the past four years.
It’s so exciting to see it continue to grow! Not only do 100% of ticket and raffle sales go to Summerfair’s annual programming, but the fashion show gives the attendees a sneak peek of Summerfair exhibitors that they can shop with all weekend long!
