So, last night, I did something that I’ve never done before: I went to a fashion show! After over a decade of watching America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway and similar shows, I finally got a glimpse of a runway in person at the Holiday Glam Fashion Show held by the online publication Cincy Chic, an amazing website about Cincinnati-specific stores, spas, events, fashion, etc.
This was such a fun event! The fashion show wasn’t very long, but it had a lot of heart. The clothes were all provided by Clothes Mentor, a store that sells second-hand designer items for amazing prices. I really enjoyed seeing the fabulous outfits come down the runway. There was one purple dress (Sorry, I couldn’t get a picture fast enough) that I really loved and want to try to find in the store!
Before the fashion show, there were about 20 vendor booths selling a huge variety of items. There were skincare booths, hair/makeup booths, an essential oil booth, designer and eclectic clothes booths, and even a personal stylist. I really enjoyed browsing the goods and learning about some neat local boutiques and businesses as well as some larger businesses. The booths also put some small items and coupons together for our complimentary swag bags that we received upon arrival.
Finally, there were little nibbles, but nothing quite topped these delicious and adorable cupcakes provided by Gigi’s Cupcakes. A friend and I used to go to their Kenwood location all the time for gourmet cupcakes but I haven’t been in so long, so these were both tasty and nostalgic for me.
Overall, it was a really fun night! There were raffles and giveaways and just a delightful holiday glam atmosphere. I enjoyed attending my first fashion show, and I really want to find similar events to attend in 2018!
Have you attended any local beauty or fashion events? How were they? Please, let me know in the comment section. I love how connected our communities can be!
