From evening wear to menswear to the avant garde, The Face Magazine set Charlotte on fashion fire recently at their Issue 5 Release fashion show. The runway was ablaze with looks from talented emerging artists as well as established brands like Dillards and Hampton's Men's Clothier. Designers Joseph McCrae and Elias Gurrula proved they are NYFW ready with their collections and featured designer Rinat Brodach showed us how it's "done" in New York. 3BlackBird Management models rocked the runway, giving us the modern, chic and edgy woman set forth by the designers. I was thrilled to emcee the show which took place at Le Meridien Charlotte and interact with stylish guests.

Glamazons Invade Jeffrey!

Oscar de la Renta, Jeffrey Atlanta As I walked through Phipps Plaza yesterday, working my way to Jeffrey, I spotted a tall, young, beautiful glamazon in short shorts, hair pulled back and holding very high heels in hand. But, that walk ... I can spot a runway model a mile away, or in this case 100ft. Then I see another. And another. They were leaving the exact place I was going to. I thought to myself, "whoa, if these are the models being cast for Jeffrey Fashion Cares, it's going to be one hell of a show!"

Jeffrey Atlanta GM, Don Purcell, Jeffrey Buyer, Philip Manghisi and Randi Layne of Catwalk Productions ran a tight ship. I've never been to a more organized [and civilized] model casting in Atlanta. Like ever! Models arrived in shifts, signed in, met the "panel" and walked for them.

Models were asked to walk with a smile - something you rarely see on runways!

As I stood there watching, I visualized these "girls" in Dior, Givenchy, Oscar... it was an excitement builder... [I can't wait for] Jeffrey Fashion Cares on August 25th. *Tickets went live this week and are selling fast, so hurry and secure yours!! {TICKETS} Bring a friend - #PreventionInPairs

ANNE BARGE for DDG

anne-barge-fashionado
I can't think of a more glamorous way to spend a Saturday morning than choosing formal wear at Guffey's Anne Barge for a fashion show!

On Thursday, September 30th, eight of the most exquisite Anne Barge evening gowns will be featured in the Drop Dead Gorgeous Charity (DDG) Third Annual Benefit.


DDG Executive Director, Susan Muscari-Komoto and graphic designer, Ellen Harden, joined me in the selection process. This sounds serious, but truly, it was a blast. 

Anne made it easy by separating a number of options for us. Of course, we had to touch every gown in the Atelier. How could we resist the shimmery satins and sumptuous silks, the intricate lace and ornate crystal and pearl embellishments?

 You can still get TICKETS for the Third Annual DDG Fashion Benefit Co-emceed by top model and DDG spokesperson Bre Scullark and V-103's Nina Brown. 

The evening begins with a reception at 7pm, followed by the fashion show and lets not forget the silent auction!
