Last wednesday, I had the pleasure of assisting Revolver Boutique as they participated in a fashion show on Glenwood South.
The show was organized to unveil the newest Mercedes models, the C-Class and GLA.
Cars aside, the event was a blast and some of our boutique friends from Cameron Village joined in on the fun!
The following is my re-cap of the event, a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into a fashion show.
At 1:00pm on show day I met Liz, the owner of Revolver, at the shop to review the looks and go over our game plan. Some of the models were already present, so I led them over to Primp Salon & Bar to start getting ready.
First came hair: I considered the look(s) each girl would be wearing and decided on a hair style that would complement the outfit.
Some ladies went edgy while others had a soft, feminine ‘do.
After hair came make-up and the transformation continued. While all of our models are absolutely stunning, it’s unbelievable what a little mascara and lip color can do for a girl.
Once the beauty portion of the day was complete, we waited… and waited some more.
That’s half of a show is waiting. For hair, for makeup, for the show to start.
I treated myself to a mini manicure and a glass of champagne (thank goodness it was a salon/bar!) while other attendees networked, chatted with friends, or read fashion magazines.
Around 4:00pm it was time to start getting dressed. The lovely staff at Raleigh Downtowner let us use their space to get ready. Bonus: their outdoor space made for a great photoshoot backdrop!
Despite the dark, I just had to snap a picture of these last few looks. The first features the most luxe reversible fur coat, the second a super cute Ocsar de la Renta sweater with a Proenza Schouler skirt, and the third an adorable Chloe skirt topped off by a MiuMiu shearling jacket. If these outfits don’t make you want to rush to Revolver right now, then you must be crazy!
All in all it was a wonderful night and a huge success!
I am so thrilled to be an honorary member of Revolver even though I’m no longer an employee.
Although fashion shows can be stressful at times, it is totally worth it in the end.
Can’t wait for the next one!
