DRESS FOR DINNER WITH DESIGNER RUBIN SINGERSaturday, March 12, 2016
Last week I attended the Recipe for Success Foundation's Dress for Dinner event at Neiman Marcus. This was the 5th event organized by Season 7 Chair, Carrie Colbert. Carrie and Neiman Marcus invited couturier Rubin Singer to host. Rubin Singer is an amazing talent, and is distinguished by the title of couturier which is different from the blank umbrella term, Fashion Designer. Rubin Singer rose to fandom after designing Beyonce's 2013 Super Bowl performance outfit. Rubin Singer arrived a few days early to host a trunk show at Neiman Marcus for their patrons. I was able to sit down with the designer for an interview, which will be on my blog later this week.
Rubin only had an hour or so break between interviews and returning to host the Dress for Dinner event. He was very sociable and mingled with the crowd before and after his show. To attend the event, guests had the option of purchasing a $50.00 ticket that provided them access to the fashion show, or purchasing a $350.00 ticket that included dinner with Rubin Singer after the show at Mariposa, Neiman Marcus' internal restaurant.

Before the show, Recipe For Success Foundation Founder, Gracie Cavnar spoke on the organization, it's growth and the creation of their own healthy eating app; Veg Out that coincides with their Veg Out 30 Ways in 30 Days Challenge. The challenge is to eat a different vegetable every day for 30 days! The app makes it easier to find recipes and motivation to keep up the challenge! Overall the event was a success! I loved the home decor items that were chosen for centerpieces, and the jewelry that was paired with Rubin's designs. Rubin's looks were flawless, and speak to the strong, independent woman, who's not afraid to turn heads! Check out photos from the event and the fashion show below!
