EVENT RECAP: 5th Annual ReNEW & ReDUX Fashion ShowSaturday, August 30, 2014
Last year, was my first time covering The Women's Home's Annual reNEW/reDUX Fashion show. I had a great time and was happy to be invited back to cover the show again for their 5th installment. The event was held last week, on August 20th, the day after I returned from Magic Market Week. Even though I was severely jet-lagged, I was committed to attending the show and covering the amazing cause that is The Women's Home. The Women's Home is a non-profit organization that helps rehabilitate women in crisis. They have been in existence for over 55 years! And for the last 5 years, The Women's Home has put on the reNEW/reDUX (RNRD) fashion show to raise money for the home. Throughout the year, members of the community donate their gently worn fashionable apparel and accessories to The Women's Home's Cottage Shop. The fashion show at RNRD features clothes from The Cottage Shop. The Cottage Shop, located in Montrose, sells everything from furniture to high-end designers and generates 20% of The Women's Home's operating income.
The event was multifaceted, including a silent auction, raffles, makeup touch-ups, food tastings and of course shopping! The RNRD chair this year was The Women's Home intern Ally! Ally was super sweet and worked with all of us media bloggers in covering the event. She arrived early, on the day of the event, to set up racks of clothes and accessories from The Cottage Shop for the guests to shop. Everything on the runway was also shoppable and came out on racks of their own after the show. The women in attendance attacked these racks! Q Salon was on hand applying false lashes and doing quick makeup touches, while SOK (Salon on Kirby) offered green clip-on hair extensions for a $10 donation to The Women's Home. You already know I left with a green hair clip and lashes! The food offerings were super yummy! There were gourmet dessert options such as pecan pie in a cup and yummy sushi from Fish & Kitchen. Perpendicular to the runway were tables set up with donated items from companies in houston for the silent auction. Kendra Scott donated a jewelry pull. What's that you might ask? For $100 you could pull a Kendra Scott box (without know what was inside) and keep the piece of jewelry with the proceeds going to The Women's Home. The price range of the jewelry in the pull was $100 - $300! Wouldn't it be great to pay $100 for a $300 piece of jewelry!? What a savings! And if that wasn't enough, a cruise was being raffled off with raffle ticket sales going to The Women's Home.
I met up with a bunch of my Houston Blogger buddies in the media area to cover the event! Enjoy these pictures from the fashion show, and the scene!
