I was asked by the Metropolitan Builders Association to create and produce 2 fashion shows at their Home and Remodeling show. They decided to go in a slightly different direction this year and try some new ideas. Enter: Impeccable Image LLC. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fashion show at a home show but I thought it was a great idea. Give the attendees some unexpected excitement and some great fashion ideas.
I decided that a high fashion vibe wouldn’t be entirely appropriate for the attendees of this event. A more approachable, semi-casual and somewhat dressy look would be much better. I met with Tina Christy, the owner of Mainstream Boutique in Delafield and we determined what clothes would achieve that vision. Tina is a dream to work with and her clothes are gorgeous (as you see from the photos). I highly recommend you visit her boutique and get your fun items from her. http://www.mainstreamboutique.com/franchise/wisconsin/index.html
Wendy Bain, who is an instructor at John Casablancas Modeling & Career Centers, was my right-hand woman who helped tremendously with finding some of the models, including herself. She also chose and prepared all of the music for the show. I couldn’t have done it without her!
Joann Ringer, who is a cosmetologist, did the hair and makeup with her usual aplomb. She is an absolute joy to work with and does everything with excellence. Joann sells Motives Cosmetics which is an excellent line of makeup that people such as Jennifer Lopez wear. You can check out the products at http://www.joannringer.com/
Rachel Womack, who is a professional videographer and owner of http://www.todayandforevervideos.com/home, put aside her camera to be a dresser for the models. Rachel was a huge help to the models who were very glad she was there to help since they only had a couple of minutes to change between looks.
The 2 fashion shows went off without a hitch and got rave reviews, including from the sponsors. We’ve been asked back next year with our choice of dates and times. Mission accomplished!
