Where do I start? My long time friend and I had an idea from a very young age. We always talked about going into business together, I mean we were 17 and had no idea what being a grown up was about. So one night in April of 2017 we starting to think of something we could do locally to support women with small run business. So we came up with “Fall for Fashion”. Knowing that there aren’t any fashion shows in the fall and mostly focused in the Spring we just had to make it happen! We really wanted to get the motion set for Fall of 17’, however Alysha had her eye on opening up a second boutique in West Chester, and I was starting to pick up with fall clients. So we planned on Fall of 18’.
We thought long and hard about a charity to work with. We had a few in mind and we decided to work with “Family Lives on Foundation” based out of Exton PA. This organization operates in 40 states and has an amazing mission!
Family Lives On Foundation supports the lifelong emotional well-being of children whose mother or father has died. Our Tradition Program provides opportunities for intentional remembering, creating a safe haven for grief, communication and celebration.
We held our event at the West Chester Country club on September 20th from 6:00 pm till 9:30 pm. We had a great assortment of vendors and a even better runway turn out! vendors include:
La Chic Boutique, The Creative Shutter LLC, Matilda Jane, Nuskin, Tish Boutique, Chole & Isabel, Power Beans by Jen, Purpose Positivity Perspective, Via One Hope, Color Street, Monet Hair, Phineas Gage, Bopbe, Kakoon, H. Rose, Kaly, UIRE, Blink, Obag, Lipsense, and Rubys Bytes!
The event vibe was amazing! Our DJ was awesome at keeping the party alive! Michael knew how to keep everyone out of their seats and having a great time!
Before we started the fashion show Kelly from Family Lives on Foundation spoke about their mission and how the foundation supports families all over the United States. The Fall runway looks were on point! We had looks from La Chic, Kakoon, Tish, UIER, Phineas Gage, H. Rose, Kaly, Obag, and Blink. Runway looks consisted of casual and dressy. Each runyway participant had 8 looks to present in the fashion show, and they did NOT disappoint!
We had an amazing turn out for this event! We couldn’t have been more surprised once we tallied up the ticket sales! We had over 200 people in attendance and maxed out the clubs capacity! Thank you to ALL of our Sponsors, Donations from Local Businesses, Vendors, Models, Volunteers, West Chester Country Club for hosting us, Family Lives on Foundation for allowing us to support your mission, and all of our guests. We could not have made this night happen without all of your love an support! Oh and to the two best friends, a night out, and way too much wine!
See you in Fall of 19’
