PLAY MDA City Apartments Fashion Show

Perry


Last week, I attended a fashion show on the rooftop of the MDA City Apartments.  The view was amazing, the company was great and it was all for a good cause!  The event doubled as a fundraiser for the Sankofa Theatre Company and a pre-pride party, in celebration of equality and gay rights. 
As usual, the lovely Amber McCulloch of Style Plus Curves joined me.  We enjoyed sangria, tasty appetizers and a little bit of shopping while we eagerly awaited the start of the show.  My favorite purchase of the evening was a foxy pair of feather earrings, hand-made by Haut Statement.  I cannot wait to rock them with some black heels and a burgundy dress to match!  
Eight, local designers showcased a selection of their pieces in the runway show. Gabrielle Zwick was a personal favorite of mine with her 1940’s-inspired pieces. 
I was pleasantly surprised by the large selection of up-cycled, vintage designers as well.  Venus Meets Vintage, Rehbd Vintage, and LeThrift showcased rehabbed vintage pieces that captured a specific era, while still exuding a modern appeal. 
The crowd of people that attended made it obvious that the event was quite a success!
I certainly enjoyed the evening and I look forward to the possibility of attending again next year.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Pride!
