Happy Friday my friends! Who is ready for the weekend? I sure am! Today I just wanted to do a little recap of a fabulous event I attended called A Really Good Strut at Westside Provisions District. The interactive evening of fashion began at 6 p.m., featured complimentary bites from award-winning District restaurants and signature cocktails provided by Georgia Crown. After mingling with fellow bloggers we watched the fashion show as models from Anthropologie, Calypso St. Barth, Free People, G. Gilbert and Pure Barre strut the latest fall fashions across the District’s iconic bridge. District tenant Dragonfly Salon provided hairstyling and makeup for the models while DJ Armor took care of the music.
The best part of the event is all proceeds from the evening benefitted Friends of Atlanta Waterworks, a Park Pride “Friends of the Park” group working towards the re-opening of local greenspace on the Westside. Nothing like enjoying a fashion show and good food for a great cause!
