Simon Fashion Now Event Review

Simon Fashion Now

The results have arrived!  A couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to the Simon Fashion Now Runway Show complete with silent auction benefitting the Atlanta Humane Society.  You can catch up on that article here.  The exciting news is that this year's auction raised $1,400 for the Atlanta Humane Society, plus two of the dogs who were escorted by local media celebrities were adopted that same weekend.

As for the event itself, I can't begin to describe how much fun it was.  To be honest, when I first read about it, I was envisioning the mall fashion shows that my friends would model for back when I was in high school.  It was always exciting to see my friends walk the catwalk, but the show itself was not that spectacular.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that this show was nothing like that.

Sitting at the Simon Fashion Now show was like being on the front row of NY Fashion Week.  The models were so professional and were modeling spring's most beautiful trends.  The giveaways and interactive tutorials created even more buzz.  It was entertaining for people of all ages, and the excitement was contagious!  As each show began, the shoppers would stop dead in their tracks not wanting to miss any of the action.
