Alright! I know I haven’t updated on CFW yet. I’m very bad, but I promise it’s because I have a ton of photos and personal (and unbiased) reviews on each of the designers featured. I represented my own blog, and I’m a very… honest reviewer, so I promise you’ll have the truth exactly as I see it.
Until then! I do have a quick thing I wanted to bring up. Before I landed my new job, I was going to be off early enough to attend this fashion show that I was told about last week. Sadly it is no longer the case, but I want to give her a shout-out anyway!
I met Nancy, owner of Sophia’s World Boutique in Palmer Lake, CO at the Gino Velardi fashion show. She told me that she was having a show next (which is now *this*) week in Monument. This event is intended as a fundraiser, with the proceeds going to benefit the Military Artistic Healing Program. Because of her primary military occupation, Nancy wanted to use her side-job (the boutique) to help address a problem that she feels strongly about. As it was explained to me, this program uses art to reach out to active-duty and veteran military personnel with post-traumatic stress.
I think this is a great way to use something we love to solve humanitarian issues that we see around us every day. Why not use art and fashion as they were intended, to make the world a more beautiful, enjoyable place to live?
Even though I can’t go, I urge those of you who are up there to go check it out!
They will be featuring a few more local boutiques, showcasing Fall 2013 looks that you can love on the runway and take home and rock them yourself!
The event is tomorrow (I know, it’s short notice, I’m sorry), 2-5 at the Secret Window Fine Art Gallery.
Tickets are $25 in advance (it’s Eventbrite, so tickets bought before the event still count as “advance”) and $30 at the door.
Again, it’s going to a great cause. If anyone is interested, you can get more information and tickets on their Eventbrite page here.
