A forecast for fashion
This past Friday I had the pleasure of attending the 2nd annual Fashion Forecast Benefit Runway Show. Presented by Mr. and Mrs. Curtis Givens at The Cadre Building (Downtown Memphis), the show was created to highlight some of the burgeoning talent from Memphis (such as Patrick Henry, who’s handbag line Philip Greene is BEYOND dope) , while also showcasing stores who carry lines that are on the forefront of fashion (Sneak Peek Memphis, Style Junkie, and Eugene Michaels to name a few).
A portion of the proceeds are donated to Dress for Success, a non-profit organization that provides interview suits, confidence boosts, and career development to low-income women in over 75 cities worldwide,which is an excellent way for the Givens to give back to the community. Fashion with a cause: what could be better? Below are a few photos from the event, but you can visit our website www.ndloop.net to view the rest. Enjoy!~KT
