Wheewwwww- Another Fashion Fusion in the books!!! This years was BIGGER than ever since graduating to the Monroe Civic Center. Expectations were high and practice started over a month ago for all the boutiques. Here were some of our girls practicing in the Good Hope parking lot.
and money for the event was still going to help the local Childrens Coalition. Debbies School of Dance put on the production and I know Kesley Bourg Tanner worked her tail off to make all the segments special.This year, we knew we would be having both little kids, teens and adults in our segment. We asked our good friends Meredith Pilcher, Allison Ford and Ronnie Matz to model with Brent for the segment along with little kids Regan Pilcher and Paisley Tanner.
Paisley had on the new pink Whooping Crane tee and Regan wore the new evergreen Mermaid tee.
Food was there from Tummy Yummy Creations, Newks, Catfish Charlies, Waterfront Grill, and Chef Pat Nolan.
Our main song was "Downtown" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. We made sure all of our models had on Converse shoes and the dancers had orange bandannas tied somewhere on their body like the Mr P's Gang (Thanks Jill Keifenheim for the idea!!).
We were the opening store (Wow!) and I gotta say they did fantastic.
Some of the Highlights of the show were seeing cousin Taylor Antley model for Eleven 26 Boutique, sweet Caroline Ernst rocking it for The Flirty Ginger on her birthday
(here she was pre show getting ready)( and Lisa Perillo too!!), the pretty dresses on models for the Twisted Peacock
And then Monica walking the catwalk...
Other highlights were seeing Sydney Fincher
Sorry this pic is blurry!The evening ended with Clint Downings recycled interpretation... Those fierce ladies rocked it with dresses made from straws, cups, etc.
We finished out the night with a packed house enjoying the After Party at River and Rail. My head hit the pillow at 1am.
Big thank you to my sister Holly for keeping the kids!!!!
Thanks again for reading. Stay tuned for all about the cool tee we designed to help Med Camps of Louisiana.
