Behind the Scenes: Fashion Show Benefit

C. Madeleine’s was honored to be part of the second annual Take a Walk in Her Shoes for the Community Partnership for the Homeless. Hosted by Womenade, the affair’s goal was to raise funds to benefit the homeless in our community; to not only offer temporary help but to assist in rehabilitation in the long-term. We are incredibly grateful to be included in something that stands for improvement and progress in our beloved city and are delighted to be part of this noble cause.

The event consisted of a silent auction, luncheon and fashion show at the Biltmore Hotel this past Thursday. The show, produced by C. Madeleine’s & styled by the one and only Danny Santiago, was a success. Based on the fashions of the 1950s and 1960s, the assembled looks were stunning and unique, yet wearable by contemporary and fashion-conscious women.

Backstage, an amazing group of hairdressers and make-up artists from the RikRak Salon went to work on a dozen models. The presentation was not without the usual fashion show blend of chaos, nail-biting and last-minute changes. That being said, it all came together perfectly in the end.

Below are a handful of behind the scene snapshots. More photos coming soon!
