I attended the Simon Fashion Now Fashion Show this past Thursday for the 1st time and it was a great experience! Cadillac does a fantastic job of sponsoring this fashion event inside of the Houston Galleria.
I actually got a chance to see the Ice Skating Rink being turned into the venue the night before, right after leaving the Simon Fashion Now Blogger Preview Party.
Below is the check-in booth where you received your wristband for entry to the show.
While waiting, we were able to take pictures with Smile Booth in front of the step and repeat.
As well as drinks sponsored by Grey Goose. My favorite was the Strawberry Rhubarb drink. 😉 There were models displaying the clothing as we mixed and mingled. It was like getting a preview of what was to come. 🙂
Another one of the sponsors and vendors was Same Sky. 100% of the net proceeds of this jewelry line go to women in Rwanda to support their “trade-not-aid” initiative.
The show started off with a short video giving the story behind Same Sky. Here are screen shots from the show highlighting Same Sky below. After the video, the founder of Same Sky, Francine LeFrak came out to speak to the audience.
Next was a bit of a surprise. There appeared to be a boy band singing Justin Timberlake’s “Bringing Sexy Back”. Then the models started walking out from Saks Fifth Avenue. Basically Saks had live entertainment for the models to strut down the runway. It turned out to be pretty cool. Max Mara was next Fendi had some amazing textures, designs, and shoes in their show. There was more live entertainment during the Jimmy Choo show Carolina Hererra had gorgeous gowns Next up was FerragamoThis pair of boots looks great in both white and black
