Go Red for women event

A few weeks ago Eclatante and Beautiful Blooms, my studio neighbors in Liberties walk hosted an event for the American Heart Association called the Go Red for Women Preview Party.

"Young fashion designers from Philadelphia University’s fashion design program came out to compete at a drop-dead amazing fashion show on our Walk. All the dresses were, of course, red. But even more incredible, each designer was inspired by the story of a person close to them who had experienced heart disease in a very real way. The stories were beautiful — just like the dresses that were exhibited that evening." a quote from Kendall Brown (Eclatante Design)

Not only did I shoot the event but all the models got ready in my studio. It was never so packed at one time! Their hair and makeup was expertly accomplished by Phoenix Salon & Spa and Salon 201.

The winners!

The emcees were Bill Henley and Lori Wilson, hosts of the daily NBC10 10! show. The judges were Janice Armstrong of the Philadelphia Daily News, Kristin Munro of Philadelphia Style Magazine and Tiffany Hill, B101 Radio.

In attendance were about 200 women (well, mostly women) who have a heart for this incredible campaign. As they arrived, they were treated to delicious treats from Max & Me Catering and served wonderful beverages. And All Around Entertainment created the perfect musical atmosphere for the evening.
