Seasonably Chic Showcase Sneak Peek: FennoFashion

Our Seasonably Chic Showcase event is almost here! From now until the event, I’ll be randomly selecting some of the vendors we’ll have at the show to give you a sneak peek of what you can find at the show! Today, I’m highlighting FennoFashion.

We recently wrote about Megan Fenno, the brains (and designer) behind the business, here for her blog and radio segment. And in 2009, we recognized her as one of our Women of the Year for her design business FennoFashion. Click here to read her story and check out some of the designs she’ll have for sale this Saturday at the event!

Pet Fashion Show Feature of the Day: FENNOfashion

Today’s Pet Fashion Show Feature is FENNOfashion. Cincy Chic’s Pet Fashion show will take place on September 23 from 6-9pm at Performance Lexus. The event is free to attend and all the proceeds go to Recycled Doggies.

The event will feature a lot of great stuff for your favorite canine sidekick! But one of our fab vendors who will be there is FENNOfashion, and she specializes in poshing up pet owners (or any human for that matter! haha!).

FENNOfashion is a vintage inspired jewelry and handbag accessory company founded by the pocket-sized fashionista, Megan Fenno. She launched her company several years ago after graduating from Savannah College of Art with a BFA in fashion & accessory design. She eventually made it back to her hometown of Cincinnati where she brought with her FENNOfashion. Now, all of her pieces are designed and created right here in Cincinnati.

Besides, designing and selling accessories, Megan is now providing fashion tips for all of us here in the tri-state area! Megan has recently joined forces with three top radio stations: Q102, B105 and 94.1, as their Senior Fashion Editor. She also provides daily advice at www.Cincysavers.com.

FENNOfashion can be found at local boutiques (such as LouLou’s), online at www.FENNOfashion.com, and at events, like Cincy Chic’s upcoming Pet Fashion Show!

Attendees of the event will get to see FENNOfashion’s new fall collection, as well as FENNOfashion’s signature pieces. The night of the Pet Fashion show guests will be able to enjoy a 20% discount and an opportunity to chat with Megan, the owner of FENNOfashion, who will be taking custom orders, and offering up great fashion advice too!

Megan Fenno says, “I am really excited to be a part of this fabulous event once again. It was so much fun to see all the dogs dressed up and all the owners showing off their pups last year. It’s one of those events where you just leave feeling warm and fuzzy inside. Seriously, if you missed it last year, you HAVE to come this year!”

So, make sure you check out www.FENNOfashion.com to start picking out your favorite pieces. And make sure you like FENNOfashion on Facebook for exclusive sales, contests and sneak peeks of the newest products. Also, remember to get your tickets for the Cincy Chic Pet Fashion Show! The event is free and space is limited!

Eco-Fabulous Fashion Show

I’m so super excited for our “Eco-Fabulous Fashion Show” event coming up March 25! We did a go green event last year, and it was great. But this year, we’re taking it to a whole new, even more amazing, level.

Last year, we had some designs that DAAP students made on display throughout the venue. It was neat to look at them, but none of them could really be worn. But this year, the DAAP students are making eco-fab designs that are going to be worn on the runway! The outfits will be made out of repurposed household items and/or eco-friendly products. Think couture gown out of dryer sheets whisking its way down the catwalk… yeah, amazing.

Serket Jewelry is sponsoring the fashion show portion of the event, and is designing all the jewelry for the models. I interviewed her in this previous blog. I just love how innovative Lyn (owner/designer for Serket) is, so I’m sure she’ll have incredible designs and concepts for you to enjoy at this show. I’ll have a sneak peek here of some of her designs soon on the blog after Lyn and my fashion show intern go and check out the DAAP designs.

Also, this year, Lexus has a brand new hybrid it’ll be featuring. AND vitaminwater zero just came on board as the presenting sponsor, so you know there will be great swag!

I hope you can make it! Here are all the details…

LouLou’s Loves FENNOfashion

I don’t have any kids yet, so I consider Cincy Chic my baby right now. I gave birth to it four years ago on a couch in Philadelphia. Since then, I’ve been with it every step of the way, helping it learn to walk, make new friends and grow into a beautiful young publication.

Well, as a part of “making friends,” Cincy Chic and I have met an array of amazing local designers and some savvy boutique owners. Two of these people are Megan from FENNOfashion and Nancy from LouLou’s Boutique on Bridgetown Rd.

I just learned that Megan and Nancy connected at a recent Cincy Chic event and now LouLou’s is carrying FENNOfashion jewelry! It was a “proud mama” moment! It’s like my child introduced two people who are now dating! haha!

I’m really excited! I know this is a big step for Megan who has been primarily selling on her website and events. And it’s great for LouLou’s to be tapping into the local designer community who can introduce new shoppers to her store!

12 Days of Seasonably Chic Showcase: Day 3

It’s hard to believe, but the Nov. 6 Seasonably Chic Showcase is three itty bitty days away! The Tri-State’s best boutiques and vendors will be there for all your one-stop shopping needs. So, here’s a sneak peek of some of the vendors you’ll see there, and my favorite things they offer!

FENNOfashion
Founded upon the principles of creating trendy, vintage style accessories, FENNOfashion offers trendy and earth-friendly products through their online store. Megan Fenno, the owner and designer of FENNOfashion, is a Cincinnati native who works to be an active part of the community and raise environmental awareness. She’s so great, Cincy Chic featured Megan as the 2009 Fashion Woman of the Year! So, when you give someone FENNOfashion accessories, you can tell them it’s award winning and eco-friendly fashion! For me, earrings are a necessity and there were so many to choose from here. But, I found the pair that are a must-have… nothing like I’ve ever seen before! These Amber Teardrop Mesh Earrings are the perfect way to dress up those casual tee’s, or add a hint of glamor to your regular Saturday night. Either way you look at it, these are the one thing a girl needs to spice up her wardrobe!

Sweet Petit Desserts
This week is our “Sweets Issue” on Cincy Chic. So, as I edited the stories, it very difficult to not consume my weight in cupcakes. One story in particular this week is about Sweet Petit Desserts, and it interviews Owner Taren Kinebrew for the story behind her bite-size desserts – click here to read it! Made from the finest ingredients, the utmost care and a whole lot of love, Sweet Petit Desserts are luxurious bite sized treats bursting with flavor. Taren makes them small so you can indulge without overindulging. (I was wondering how she can be around sweets all day and stay so skinny!) With cheesecake pops, to brownie bites,  petit fours, to chocolate covered strawberries–Sweet Petit offers you any sweet treat you need for your upcoming holidays events. Their products are almost too cute to eat! Shown here is a display of some of their many desserts, check them out at the Seasonably Chic Showcase on Nov. 6th to find your favorite!
