I met up with the ladies and gent in the Palo Verde Lounge for some drinks. I had never met them before, which was nerve racking because I am shy, but with a vodka water in hand my nerves calmed down a little bit. It helped that they were very welcoming and pretty hilarious. Within five minutes, I felt like I had a brand new set of friends. We walked the red carpet and checked out some boutiques that had set up booths.
I want to share some of my favorite designers of the night and their amazing creations. First up, Enzoani. The gowns were amazing and definitely got my bridal fever going. I loved the ethereal look and lace details. My favorite.
My next favorite (and possibly my most favorite) was Silvia Bours. Maybe it was the Phantom of the Opera themed show, or the tulle adorned shoes, or the amazingly playful dresses, but I loved the whole presentation so much.
My next favorite was Trang Nguyen. The designs were classic and chic, and consisted mostly of red and white.
The show closed out with Rocky Gathercole. His designs were killer. I'd never seen anything like that. The various materials he used created the most unusual, yet fashionable dimension. Everyone was blown away.
It was a night full of amazing creations that I wish I could sport on an everyday basis. I admire all of the designers for their talent and eye for art. Each one brought a different look to the table and I love that most of them stepped out of the box.
