Cherry Blossom Fashion Show 2012

Hello fellow fashionistas! So I know this is a couple months late BUT I just now got decent pictures to show ya from the international Cherry Blossom capital’s annual Fashion show! This year it was all about “Diamonds & Pearls..Blossoms & Twirls.” I know in years past they did a little red dress theme and other very girly, feminine ones.

Exactly one week before my birthday I was beyond excited to have a helping hand in my first fashion show! Dare I say it was the highlight of my internship with the festival? :X The show took place at the Goodwill Anderson conference center in one of their renovated conference rooms. The guests in attendance were not your typical high brow socialites but more so ladies who lunch lol. I counted a whopping 500 seat capacity sold out show!

But I just adored seeing all the tweed-like Chanel suits and Kentucky Derby overdone hats. Needless to say I was swarming in a sea of pink! I also had the chance to work with local tastemaker, Mark Ballard, who writes in the lifestyle section of the Telegraph newspaper. He is a man in a class all his own and a riot! Artist, cook, presenter, writer, are just a few of his many talents! Mark hosted the mid-day event and was great at that, might I add.

Some other small town celebs who arrived were the Macon mayor and his wife and daughter, Carolyn Crayon, the founder of the Cherry Blossom Festival, news anchorman for 13WMAZ, the pink poodles, and Ms. Betty Ragland who is actually a UGA FACS alumn! GO DAWGS WHOOT!

Big thanks as always to media sponsors, key volunteers (who tied those darn backs of chairs 100 bows onto), Dillards, Chico’s, Belk, White House Black Market for their donation of clothes for the show and models!
