Little Black Dress Party

Friday, March 10, 2017

The JW Marriott ballroom glowed pink while everyone was dressed in their best “little black dress” attire! I along with hundreds of people attended The Little Black Dress Party, on Saturday, February 25. This was my first time going to the annual party and was I blown away! From the cocktails to the runway fashion show, every detail was done to perfection.

The evening kicked off with a fashion show sponsored by Humanity Boutique. They had endless models strutting their stuff in styled outfits to music by Dj Composition. The energy from the crowd was tangible, and you could feel the excitement in the room. Every woman on that runway exuded the confidence and sophistication that all women should feel. The dresses ranged from timeless to sleek and edgy.

I connected with Courtney from Humanity Boutique to get her persective of the entire evening. Here's what she said:

"This is year we were honored to participate as the featured boutique at the Little Black Dress runway show.  The JW Marriott was a pleasure to work with.  They handled the technical and logistical part of the runway show, which made it easy for me to do my part.  I selected the models, three of which are cancer survivors. Since the Little Black Dress party is partnered with Susan G. Komen I thought it would be the perfect fit to use survivors to model on the runway. 
Styling the models can be the hardest part because I want the clothing to fit their personalities as well as their bodies.  This gives them that extra amount of confidence on the catwalk because they actually enjoy what they are wearing. But together we came up with the perfect outfits, and all outfits flowed seamlessly on the runway.  Organization and helping hands are the key elements to pulling off a successful runway show.  I'm so grateful to have my amazing family who teamed up to help pull it off!"

Like Coutrney said above, The Little Black Dress Party partnered with Susan G. Women so that a portion of the proceeds go to supporting breast cancer research. Knowing that all these men and women had gathered for not only a great evening but an even greater cause was awesome! 

Once the fashion show finished, the music, drinks, and dancing kept going! Every corner of the room was filled with people. My friends and I took the stage for some dancing to DJ Composition. The night was filled with beautiful, inspiring women and I will definitely be attending this event next year!
