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!
