Fashion First

There are a handful of fashion shows that I look forward to seeing every year and Fashion First is one of them. The idea behind Fashion First is to showcase the best fall fashion within our local boutiques and designers while benefiting the Starlight foundation. The event was definitely charity heavy and full of fashion.

John Curley from Evening Magazine kicked off the night with an auction. The auction included a seven day stay in Cancun, jersey from Matt Hasselbeck, wine collections, and a one on one consultation and garment made of your choice with Project Runway contestant, Blaine (which was auctioned for $2,000).

Tonight's line up included...

La Ree (pictured above), The Finerie, Totokaelo, merge, Tatters, Clutch, Impluse, Heidi K Jewelry, the winners of Seamless in Seattle, and student designs from the Art Institute.

On the runway there were a five trends that I spotted...
1. Lots of mixture with gray and black
2. Black Boots, Booties, and Gladiator heels
3. Fur vests
4. The boyfriend blazer
5. Big everything from hair to bold colorful jewelry.

Once again, Fashion First threw another great show. :)
