I am happy to say that the VIP Party for the 2014 LIM College Fashion Show went very well!
The salon in which the party was held was packed. This was our (Ashley and I) first sign that things were going well. Throughout the night various Fashion Show Production team members, as well as the directors, came in and out of the party to chat with VIP guests.
The main “eye-catchers” we placed in the room displayed exactly what we wanted our guests to celebrate. There were enlargements of archival photos from LIM College to celebrate our 75th Anniversary, as well as the inspiration boards made by each of the student teams to celebrate the 70th annual Fashion Show. And let’s not forget the hors d'oeuvres and open bar! Our VIPs were also given a free raffle ticket to win one of two spring-colored Furla bags.
Between delicious food and great conversation, the party was filled with smiles and excitement – partly because everyone could see the lit-up stage and runway from the party. I hope that next year’s event is as much, or even more, of a success!
