The Fashion Show!
To say that I'm tired would be an understatement. The Fashion's Night Out Fashion Show at the Torpedo Factory on Thursday night was a huge event, took a huge amount of time, but, most importantly was a smashing success and worth every single minute. There were a couple hundred people in attendance and the vibe was festive and exciting. Monte Durham from Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta was our emcee and what an emcee he was. He was the most sincere, hilarious, happy-to-be-there celebrity emcee I've ever experienced. He was great. The models were out of this world. I mean that truly. Our celebrity models included Dr. Katy Nelson (@drkatynelson), Tommy McFly (@tommyMcFLY), Sonya Gavankar-McKay (@SonyaTV), Pamela Sorenson (@pamelaspunch), and Britt McHenry (@BrittMcHenry). They were such a nice group of people, all beautiful (and handsome!), and all willing to help out however we needed. Our professional models were gorgeous. They were total dolls and I appreciated how laid-back and cool they were. Maurisa Potts made this entire FNOAlexandria thing happen, big time. Maggy Francois was a fantastic show producer and her assistants, Ariella Faith and Joel Cas were SO helpful and had great insight. Tara Zimnick-Calico from the Torpedo Factory is my new favorite person in the world- she was a beautiful model, worked incredibly hard to make this whole thing happen, and was very supportive. Love her! Finally, the stores. What can I say but that the beautiful clothing, shoes, and accessories came exclusively from the FABULOUS stores in Alexandria. If you want to look as good as ANY of the models, visit all of these stores. I mixed and matched from a lot of them and created outfits that were as fashionable as you'll find anywhere. So keep shopping and support our local boutiques. Oh, and if you feel like you can't quite put those outfits together yourself, call me. That's what I'm here for!
I think about fashion... a lot. And I love to shop. So much that I do it for a living. I find inspiration in fashion. And I find that many things inspire my style and the way I style others. I take joy in dressing each one of my clients' individual personalities. It is so much easier to dress a real person than a mannequin! But it is in the every day that I find my true creativity- movies, art, music, and mood to the more mundane like what I have going on and who I'm going to see. I believe fashion should always be fun even when you are dressing seriously.
