Today's post is a continuation of my Saturday two weeks ago. It started out with the beauty blogger event at L'Occitane and then continued into the evening with the SEND Fashion Show!
The show was such an inspirational and uplifting way to spend the evening! I went in excited for a night of fashion fun and left teary-eyed but feeling so encouraged and hopeful!
The SEND Foundation is the Stroke, Epilepsy, and Disability Foundation and the proceeds from the show went towards the foundation.
Many of the models were VIPs and are people with disabilities but they have not let those disabilities slow them down a bit!
They all owned the runway -strutting down it with pride! Later on in the night we got to hear a little about each of their stories. What they have overcome and what their passions and aspirations are.
At the end of the night, the producer of the show, Tae McKenzie (who also claims the titles of model, activist, entrepreneur, and actress) handed out special pins to each model of a bee, explaining that bees were never meant to fly but they overcame the odds and fly anyway.
I do not think there was a dry eye in the house during that part of the show!
Meanwhile, before and after the show, there were many different vendors set up for attendees to browse.
My friend, Millie, of Bella Fior had a table set up immaculately. Her designs and her presentations are always such a treat!
There was homemade food to munch on afterwards and drinks for everyone.
One of the most fun things of the night was a vendor called Sisco, which featured a 360 camera! And the ladies of that company were SERIOUS hype ladies! They would cheer you on from the side as the camera panned around you!
Tae McKenzie is such a joy! She is a huge inspiration to me! She is so very kind and humble and treats you as if you are her good friend! She brings out the best in so many people! Then seeing her go down the runway was a whole other kind of remarkable! She has such a presence!
Tae, thank you for such an incredible night! It was a pleasure seeing you and I hope our paths cross again soon!
Thank you guys, so much for reading!
See you on Friday! =D
