A couple weeks back, we had our first Fashion Show as apart of the Refresh Market. It was stressful and wonderful all at the same time. Countless extra hours were put in during the weeks leading up to the event. We hand crafted the backdrop (pictured above) and this was no simple task. We wanted it to feel very bohemian and gypsy, like the models were walking out of a dream catcher!
We were so lucky to get the models we did for the show; Maggie Heilig, Julia Olsen, Alison Hutchinson, Randa Salloum, and Tatum Monod. Each of them rocked it in their own way, they were all rookies when it came to walking the runway but you never would have known! Thank you ladies! xx
Next, huge thanks to all the other vendors involved that donated some of their lovely designs to the show and were involved behind the scenes; Sasha Eillenna Jewelry, Soul Stems, Billies Flower House, Devlin Salon, Sea to Sky Nails and Lashes, Rebecca Amber Photography, and everyone who else participated in the event.
Lastly, thank you Rachel and Shannon (event hosts) for inviting us. We have always wanted to put on a fashion show and this was the perfect way for us to do it, and be involved in the community!
Below are some behind the scene images and fashion show pictures in case you weren't able to make it to the event!!
