Salute the Runway Kicks off NYFW with a bang!
Posted on 04 September 2014
We couldn't be more thrilled to supply the jewelry for Salute the Runway, a pre-NYFW kickoff featuring military servicewomen. The show was to provide awareness for the struggles these women face in transitioning back to civilian life after combat boots are no longer appropriate.
Hosted by Fatigues to Fabulous and sponsored by Little Black Dress Wines, this event was one to remember. I was honored to be part of the behind-the-scenes hustle & bustle that made everything possible. With makeup done by Bobbi Brown in the flesh and coaching by IMG Models prior to the show, these beautiful, humble & strong women truly shined on the catwalk.
