I love fashion as much as the next girl, so when I had the opportunity to attend a fashion show, I jumped at the opportunity. Last Friday at the Marin Country Club in Novato, CA, my mom and I saw the latest spring trends at the Curbside Couture fashion show. What is Curbside Couture? Essentially it is a fashion show to-go. Leah-Marie, founder and CEO of Curbside Couture, curates a mobile fashion show right in front of your business or home, featuring local designers. While this one was indoors in a banquet room, the show normally takes place on a truck bed, but still has the glitz and glam of a traditional fashion show.
Leah-Marie had everything planned out perfectly: an “L” shaped runway, drastic lighting, catering, swag bags, vendors showcasing their goods and a solid turnout. The show started at 7 p.m., but doors opened an hour before so people could shop and nosh on some food. Some of the vendors were Carolina Boutique (Novato and Mill Valley), In Her Shoes (San Rafael), Salt Point Sparkling Cocktails (Mill Valley), Ash + Ames and others.
The show itself was amazing. Half an hour of completely different looks (clothes from Carolina Boutique, shoes from In Her Shoes and jewelry from Ash + Ames) and good music. It was fun to see the new trends for spring, then being able to shop them afterwards. Here are a few snaps I took during the fashion show.
If you like the idea of having a fashion show come to you, reach out to Curbside Couture. Be sure to let me know which look is your favorite in the comments!
