Now let me veer off the wedding world for just a little bit, and move into fashion! I was so honored when I was asked to put together a fashion show for North Asheville Baptist Church‘s RUNWAY event for youth girls and women of all ages this past February. First of all, I love me some fashion, so I called my two favorite stores to dress my young models….Vestique and Altar’d State. Such amazing clothes, and they were both so generous to provide each girl with an outfit to rock on the runway. As for the design, immediately I began scouring the church for what we could use that was already existing, but as a wedding planner, I most definitely called upon some of my fav vendors for help! Thank you to LimelightFX for blowing me away with your lighting, as it would not have been the same without this. Also, thank you to Swags Design for your ‘touches’ of fabric, and to The Bloom Room for the gorgeous red floral arrangements. A perfect feminine element to the overall black and red theme. We couldn’t leave the audience hungry while watching such a show, so we had adorable little trays made with popcorn, black m&m’s, & a DELISH cookie by Ruth & Ranshaw to snack on. Love that they were all dress cut-outs…super fun! I want to also thank all my stunning models, who were all youth girls that attend NABC. Blush by Wendy and Kathleen Perry were on hand to make them runway-ready with the perfect amount of makeup for the stage. So fortunate to have Creative Cargo there to snap pictures both behind the scenes and during the show, and I thought they did an incredible job of capturing the night. THANK YOU to everyone involved, as it was a HUGE success and boat loads of fun. And one more…thank you to my soul sista, Libby Brady, for helping me throughout the process…love you!
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
(By the way, my top is from Vestique, and my jeans from Altar’d State…in case you want to know!)
First up…the fashion from Altar’d State!
And now the clothes from Vestique!
A fabulous time had by all!
