CODE Recap!

Cincy Chic assistant editor, Sara Elliott

I attended a friend’s wedding last Saturday. So, my Cincy Chic assistant editor Sara Elliott attended the CODE Chaser event at Music Hall and wrote this fab recap blog! Enjoy! ~Amy


This past Saturday, I had the amazing pleasure of attending the CODE Chaser Finale event at the Music Hall. Not only did I get to attend the event but I was also a VIP! I was so excited to be able to go, I even brought my best friend along! We had a great time checking out the scene and even more fun watching the fashion show.

The atmosphere during the night was so engaging. With DJ ETrayn in control of the music, a fun photo booth and a huge crowd!

The swag bag with Wella Professionals shampoo, conditioner, styling product and water bottle and the Mitchell’s Salon and Day Spa packet with a trial shampoo and conditioner wasn’t too shabby either.

My VIP ticket got me a front row seat to the fashion show that ended the first-ever CODE event series. I’ve never felt more fashionable in my life. Sitting front row and watching models strut by was such a great experience and permitted my obsession of fashion to go into overdrive.

Amazing lines like the Amy Kirchen Boutique, Althea Harper, Kristy Nguyen, and Jovani Fashions all debuted their new collections.

Amy Kirchen’s Spring 2013 Collection was full of neutral tones and poshly professional pieces. The nature-inspired collection from Althea Harper was chic and nurturing. Jovani Fashions was, of course, as formal and fashionable as ever with sequins galore. And Kristy Nguyen’s men’s line was military inspired and full of army greens.

I couldn’t keep my jaw from dropping at these great new releases. Seeing the fun prints, sequins and men’s fashions made me so excited to update my (and my boyfriend’s) wardrobe this spring!

After debuting her new line Althea Harper made a fantastic announcement! She will be returning to Project Runway: All-Stars on October 25! As if the crowd hadn’t already seen and heard amazing things, this was definitely icing on the cake!
