On the evening of October 25th, 2014, the fashion elite (and little old moi!) gathered in the Grand Ballroom, at the Fairmont in San Francisco. Smokey-eyed models strutted down the runway wearing the latest in Parisian Haute Couture. This slice of Parisian Heaven was hosted by the always elegant, Elisabeth Thieriot. Ms. Thieriot is the publisher of a fabulous fashion mag, FSHN Magazine and creator of the ultra-luxe skincare line, Replete Seasonal Skincare. This fashion soiree featured two of the top 10 couture brands in the world, Frank Sorbier Haute Couture Paris and on aura tout vu. This was their first time showing in the United States. American designer Mimi Tran also showcased her gorgeous collection of sexy and elegant gowns. It really was a night I will long remember. Here are a few runway shots of the models (you can click on any of the photos to enlarge them – the details are beautiful!)
To add to the evenings festivities, a popular French singer performed, enveloped by a bevy of beautiful models, clad in leather bodysuits. it reminded me of a French version of Robert Palmers, Addicted to Love.
I enjoyed this show so much and even more so, since I met a fellow bloggess! www.beautyshallsavetheworld.com Shannon is a talented SF Bay area writer who focuses on fashion and she has great style!
Replete Skincare donated 10% of all ticket sales from this high-fashion event to Reason to Party, an all-volunteer San Francisco non-profit that raises funds in fun ways for extraordinary local nonprofits.
