Strike a Pose!
If there’s two things I love working with most in this world, it’s fashion and #bossbabes! In this Champagne-filled life of mine, I’m always so grateful when I’m given the opportunity to do all the things I love for a profession. Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to emcee the Wear RVA Fashion Show, and I’m still glowing from all the positive energy in that room! It was a night filled with gorgeous gowns and female empowerment - two things I’m obsessed with!
This event was created by two incredible boss ladies, Amber Kay (of Amber Kay Photography) and Taylor Pitera (of TAILOR). They created this wonderful night of fashion to help raise money for an amazing cause. All the proceeds of the Wear RVA event went to N.E.W. (The Network of Enterprising Women). The fashion show featured local Richmond boutiques in The Renaissance ballroom to not only raise awareness of these incredible women, but to give away a few scholarships to those outstanding future boss babes!
It was such a fun night, especially seeing so many young women build a stronger sense of community within these local boutiques and female-owned businesses! All of the models for the fashion show were local high school girls, and I had such a great time learning more about them. (Despite their nerves that they may fall on the runway, I assured them that they would be great, and that if they did fall, the important things is to get back up!)
My favorite part of the fashion show had to be the fantastic confetti shower that filled the room as the 80+ models took the runway for the last time! Seeing all the beautiful smiles on all these outstanding women at the event was something I’ll never forget!
The sold-out show was such a success, and I’m so glad to have been a part of such an important night for so many incredible women as a local Richmond emcee. I can’t wait for next year’s show!
