SRCOG and NCJ Presents: An Evening of Fashion.

An Evening of Fashion is an annual charity fashion show coordinated by the women of Solid Rock C.O.G. 

Each year they pick a different focus for their charity and every few years to a different planning committee to take the reigns of the fashion show and take it to another level.

This year, I coordinated and hosted the fashion show and we decided to raise money for women and children impacted by the Florida Prison System.

This show was an absolute success because of the hard work provided by a great team of women. (Idris and Ionocencia providing catering, Jo-Ann providing amassing decor, Tanya, securing vendors for giveaways, and Ambah, securing sponsors for swag bags and co-hosting)

The fashion show was dividing into six different sections based on Spring and Summer Fashion Trends. 

Trend #1- Color Splashing with Color-blocking

Trend #2- Vibrant and Fun Prints

Trend#3- Daring Metallics

Trend #4- Optical Illusion-Black and White Color Combo.

Trend #5- Kiddie "Kouture"- Tutus and Frills

Trend #6- Red Carpet Brides and Evening Wear.

Raising money for a good cause and hearing the positive feedback received from the people who attended the event was amazing; but that wasn't what I enjoyed most about this event.

 I enjoyed seeing how many of our models who were apprehensive to be in the show, ripped the runway with such confidence and beauty. Women of all different shapes, shades, and sizes, each felt beautiful and confident and it showed. Seeing some of our younger models go from walking with their head low to walking with their heads held high with huge smiles on their faces made my day. I absolutely loved it! 

Please join is next year for another Evening of Fashion. We need you to fill seats and show out strong for a community of women and young girls that need us!
