Garnish’s 2013 Spring Soiree Recapped on Instagram.


Just wrapped up Garnish’s Spring Collection Debut. The event couldn’t have had a bigger turnout. Within the hour the boutique space was packed and even more people were lined out the door waiting to enjoy the complimentary cocktails, live Cuban band, extraordinary raffle, and long anticipated fashion show. I had the full intention of taking more photos with my own phone camera but that didn’t quite work out as planned. As you know a coordinator MUST indeed COORDINATE above all!  With all hands on deck, the Garnish Gals did such a wonderful job from start to finish. Guests and customers that attended have been leaving feedback raving about what a fun and memorable experience it was. And Erica, Owner and Lead Designer at Garnish, couldn’t have been happier with how it all turned out overall.  Here is the Instagram Recap!

Xavier Taver Band, Cuban Music, Garnish Spring Fashion Show Party 2013. Portland Oregon.
Portland’s Latin sound sensation Xavier Tavera Band had the crowd shaking their hips and grooving to Cuban tunes.
Attendees began to fill Garnish's boutique in the Pearl wall to wall.
This is the first and last photo of the crowd that I was able to take all night. Just 35 minutes in! More were making their way in through the door. What a turnout!
Professional Makeup Artist Patty Harding prepping the fashion show models.
Portland Makeup Artist Patty Harding is phenomenal and has worked with big names like Nike and Adidas in print and TV campaigns. Here she is prepping one of our models. Hair & Makeup was actually done in front of the crowd to go along with our fashion show them “Behind the Lens”.
Attendee Mia Den Uyl captured this photo. Me (on the right) giving our model- Michelle Lesniak Franklin current contestant on Project Runway Season 11- a quick check before heading out the runway! The show was set to mimic a behind the scenes look at a fashion shoot- the models stepped on a platform at the end of the runway, gave several poses, and were captured in photographs. Attendees were given a full list of looks to select styles for purchase that night (far right).
